  • Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare (Alchemy) 1987 

Hardcore meets hippie on Rock’n’Roll Nightmare as this San Francisco band — Rich Kids on LSD — sings about nuclear meltdowns, pollution, militarism, greedy promoters, prejudice, hypocrites and critics and how to cope with it all (namely, sarcasm). If you dig the trip, the band is awesome and so are the accoutrements, namely a 24-page comic/lyric book that’s way cool, dudes, er, man.
