You Stupid Dumbshit Goddamn Mother Fucker!!!!!!!!!! Those words changed my entire life. I first heard this song when I was 8 years old over the summer at my friend Scott Freifield's house, when he put on a tape. I had no idea what I was in for. The tape clicks play and you hear this "Ahhhh It's time to relax and you know what that means, a glass of wine, your favorite easy chair, and of course this compact disc playing and your home stereo. So go on, indulge yourself, that's right, kick off your shoes, put your feet up, lean back and just enjoy the melodies. After all, music soothes even the savage beasts". These are the opening words to Smash
To say I was hooked would be an understatement. I was in love with a new kind of music and a new band. That summer I went on to discover Green Day and further expand my dive into Punk music. I owe it all to those 6 words because without them I would not have the musical taste I have today.
