Texas spawned some great punk/hardcore in the early 80s. Two of the biggest names came from Austin - The Big Boys and the Dicks. The Dicks played some very good music in their time, led by their openly gay lead singer, Gary Floyd. This page will give you some history and mp3s. "Dicks Hate The Police" and "No Fuckin' War" are some of my favorites of theirs. It's my personal opinion that these two bands (The Dicks and Big Boys) are extremely underrated and deserve some credit for making some very unique and interesting music.

I love the Dicks.
"This shit here's called Death"
"What the fuck? You mean I'm gonna hit this shit and die?"
"No Nigga! I said Deaf. You hit this and you aint gonna hear shit!"

I think the Dicks best song is "I Hope You Get Drafted".
I think the Dicks borrowed a bit from the band Queen( who were a rip-off of the band Sparks).
Here's the lyrics from Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"

Mama,just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger,now hes dead,
Mama,life had just begun,
But now Ive gone and thrown it all away


Here's the lyrics from Dicks "Hate The Police"

Mommy, mommy, mommy
Look at your son
You might have loved me
But now I got a gun
You better stay out of my way


As to the Big Boys....they never did anything that really moved me.

I don't like straight edge because it's part of Hardcore, and I don't like Hardcore because, aside from the terrible music, the kids are often very homophobic.


You forgot ugly, lazy and disrespectful.

The first one is about telling your mom you've killed a man.

The second one is about telling your mom to Shut the **** up or Ill kill you.

P.S.
The dicks are the sex!
This is what you get.
This is what you get.
This what you get when you mess with us.

Hahahaha.
I actually know a bunch of old farts who love thrashy stuff.

I never liked thrash, even when I was your age, i.e. in diapers.
