GG's 1987 Rock Masterpiece
Otto | Austin, TX | 12/09/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You Give Love A Bad Name was originally released on Homestead Records in 1987 on poop-colored vinyl with a nice red album cover framing the b+w photo of GG boozing up on the railroad tracks. This is my favorite GG album and The Rolling Stones influence is heard here in fine form. The first three tracks are basic, great scum rock. GG then slows things down for the disgustingly offensive "I'm A Rapist" (earlier recorded as "Blood For You" in the early '80s with different lyrics). "Suck Dog" is a tempertantrum of a song that may be the most worthless track on the album, although it's stll fun. "Teenage Twats" could've been a hit single if not for all the cussing. "Beer Picnic" ha ha ha ha "Who needs food? I want a beer picnic", rock on GG! The next two tracks are great rockers keeping the album moving along. And YGLABN ends with an awesome cover of Charles Manson's "Garbage Dump". This CD reissue contains the early '90s 7 inch EP titled "Murder Junkies" which is a mess of noise, but one of GG's personal favorite records he did. I recommend this album as an introduction to GG Allin. Ten great scum punk songs about booze, dope, masturbation and get the point."
Good CD

"A Fairly good GG Allin CD. Includes some bonus tracks as well as an 18 minute interview from GG while he was in prison for the infamous Ann Arbor incident. Worth buying."

"GG Allin moves forward in the only way he knows possible : More Violence, More gore and NO BOUNDARIES. As an artist (if you can call him that), Mr. Allin progresses very little from a musical ability standpoint, but proceeds on his self-proclaimed "mission" to destroy rock n roll, and takes no prisoners. You give Love a bad name was his most aggressive work ever, and stands out as his best compilation yet. Definitely not for the timid, but GG never was, nor ever will be."
