Album Review

Gang Green's second full-length release and first for Roadrunner imprint Emergo, You Got It did not vary much from the band's long-established musical pattern. For the "King of Bands," drinking beer (more specifically Budweiser, in keeping with their nickname), skating, and just being a general nuisance are the dominant lyrical themes on You Got It, while an energized hardcore buzzes in accompaniment, making a mockery out of any conceivable speed limit as the Boston punkers sonically graze speed metal. New fans, unfamiliar with the myopic mookishness of Gang Green, might not have the interest or the patience to enjoy an effort so shamelessly thoughtless, but listeners down with punk's more celebratory, less serious sentiments will certainly get the point. Band leader Chris Doherty (guitars and lead vocals) punishes his voice and his instrument throughout the onslaught of brew-binging and fret-burning, making You Got It a near-classic skatepunk opus, certainly worthy of a spot in any collection of '80s American hardcore, thrash, or punk.

Customer Reviews

A must own for punk and metal fans!

I was introduced to the gang whenst I saw their I81B4U album cover (showing them surfing on beer flowing from a Budweiser can) and upon listen was instantly blown away by the awesome metal riffs, power drumming and catchy goofball choruses like "...the cheaaaay...eck....is in...the maiiil!" These guys were light years before Green Day ( I bet Green Day borrowed heavily, even with their name) and in my opinion, Gang Green are more entertaining and far heavier. The singers voice kinda reminds me of a stoned Californian version of Lemmy; I guess i'm trying to say the vocals are really catchy. Anyway, I bought this album and was equally impressed. My faves are: We'll Give it to You Born to Rock Lets Drink Some Beer (LDSB, not LSDB) Party With the Devil

THIS IS NOT THE COMPLETE ALBUM BUYER BEWARE

Just paid and downloaded this a few hours back. When I started listening, everything was fine right up until Born To Rock (and Bomb for that matter), which are LIVE versions of the songs that originally appeared on this album. I can only assume they've been confused/pulled from "Can't LIVE Without It" (GG's live album). Apple needs to fix this immediately, i'll be disputing once I finally receive the order receipt. Otherwise, this is hardcore classic, which saw the band leaning less towards speed and punk, and actually into melody, structure, and even metal. Probably still my fave of their output. Too bad my fave song is replaced with a live version in this "store". This is why people "steal" music, when online distributors can't get it right!

Biography

Formed: 1982 in Boston, MA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Far and away the biggest name to emerge from the Boston hardcore scene, Gang Green was an unabashed party band specializing in beer-soaked, warp-speed three-chord thrash. Obsessed with beer, skateboarding, sex, and more beer, the group slowly added stronger hints of heavy metal as their career wore on, but otherwise followed much the same blueprint both musically and lyrically. Predictable though they may have been, their simple party-hearty philosophy, coupled with their irreverent streak of humor,...
