Not Without A Protex

Surprised us to see the Angry Samoans' Back From Samoa at the top (reverse-order list, ha) of the "20 Greatest L.A. Punk Albums of All Time" list the L.A. Weekly stretched from Tuesday through Thursday of last wk. in a pathetic effort to get more clicks than they deserve. Perhaps not so surprising from the Weekly, a shot of the Samoans in the Jeff (Tales of Headband Glory) Dahl era, post-BfS. (Although it's surprising to see the photo.)
No, J.D. had nothing to do w/ Back From Samoa.
And 'though we hadn't expected Back From Samoa to be listed, we sure as hell thought FEAR: The Record would be. Wevver.

I think you should send an outraged (or outrageous) letter to the editor.

DEMAND RESPECT!

Written on yellow legal tablet paper in Sharpie and mailed in a re-used envelope!!

That'll pump up your cred a little...

Lazy-Ass Punk Editor:
Y'all act as if we give a damn beyond a reason to bitch & moan in this space.

Also, we'd cut & paste (Old School) words for the letter out of newspapers & magazines, but it's a paperless environment here.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
