Exxon Valdez, Wikipedia wins.

This is the Exxon Valdez Wiki Page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exxon_Valdez_oil_spill)

How the hell did the Dead Kennedys come up with a song about an event 8 years before it happened? :haha

Oh wait, lemme guess. Divine intervention, perchance?

And ontop of that, Marin isn't even in Alaska, where that happened.

According to Wiki, it is about pollution in the Marin area

Post-Modern Sounds covered Moon Over Marin at their first show. It was p0nxtastic.

I've always thought of Moon Over Marin as a very post-punk-ish song that contrasts the hardcore punk feel of the rest of Plastic Surgery Disasters. It's always been one of my favorite Dead Kennedys songs.

Scary.

:eek:
Should we put some kind of formal warning, that if you watch it you might cut off your ears?

And ruin the fun of it all?

What if some tr00 punx were to watch that? It would be funnier than Chaotik_Guit or whatever that French-Canadian-speaking mother****er's name is.

Well ya know, Jello was a Psychic. But it could really apply to exxon valdez, which was really the worst oil spill in the history of the world. (that we know of)

It could apply, but why bother when we know what the song was really about.

Why the hell is oil transported in tankers? That's asking for trouble.

Oil should be flown in aircrafts.
