A friend, once many years ago, posted a comment disparaging GG Allin on the world wide web and to this day he is STILL getting hate mail. Why are the kids, and it is usually kids, still obsessed with shit flinger Jesus Christ Allin?
I was around during the rise of the Cult of GG Allin. It was gross and obnoxious then and, once he became only known for violence, no one cared about his music. I reckon, for some folks, it was that he lived a life like nihilstic theater, but in the end no one I knew cared. Really, as he'd kept promising to kill himself, most folks I knew hoped he would, his art was bringing the wrong kind of attention to the underground.
