The Crucifucks were an intense and violently radical punk band formed in 1981. Their lyrics were extremely anti-authoritarian, full of shock value and loathing for the Reagan era of their time. Doc Corbin Dart's vocals are grating, high pitched and frightening. His lyrics are deranged and skewed stream of consciousness mayhem. The voclas take a few listens to get used to, but they fit perfectly with the music, which is always dead on heavy and original, not your typical hardcore/punk fare. Give their compilation album "Our Will Be Done" a listen. It is somewhat lengthy (29 tracks) and the quality of the songs is rather uneven. Despite these downfalls, however, "Our Will Be Done" is a great way to hear what this legendary band is all about. Two of my favorite tracks are "You Give Me the Creeps" and "Earth By Invitation Only". You can listen to "Earth by Invitation Only" below.
