Black Flag, "Police Story"
Clocking in at just over 90 seconds, Greg Ginn's 1981 tale of the police's discrimination against the Los Angeles hardcore scene explodes like a flash grenade. "I go to court for my crime. Stand in line, pay bail. I may serve time," grunts a frustrated Henry Rollins. This Damaged song also bridges the gap between the misdemeanors of "Spray Paint (The Walls)" and the imprisonment expressed in "Padded Cell."
