AK-47 - "The Badge Means You Suck" 7"
Classic Houston punk from 1980. Much has been said about this one elsewhere with lots of firsthand knowledge to back it up. I remember the Houston Police "The Badge Means You Care" advertising campaign from when I was a kid growing up in suburban Houston, but had no idea of the anti-cop tirades going on at the time elsewhere in the city, as documented on this single. Ripped at 320kbs from my personal copy; image stolen from some other site.

Inspired by a facebook thread of people posting mediafire links to their favorite 90's Houston & Austin punk records, I felt like these links should be available for everyone... so I've started putting them (as well as a bunch of other Texas stuff) on this blog.
Please post requests in the chatbox, and i'll do whatever I can to find them. Please also let me know if any of these links go bad, and I'll refresh them.
If you have links to things not yet posted, send them to me and if they're relevant, I'll put them up. If you want to send records to us for possible inclusion on the blog, please drop us an email.
If you are the copyright owner of any of the mp3's posted here and you would like the link taken down, please let me know.
If you download anything here or have anything to say, please leave a comment!
