bratmobile do a great version of this song- one of those riot grrl covers that decontextualises a song to make its machismo and rock dude vibes really awkward.

Do they? I'll have to check that out.. has to be better than Sum 41's version of "attitude".. hmm.. i feel a post on the misfits coming up...it was the "machismo" among other things that has meant they've been written out of punk history i suspect...

yeah thats probably true. also, they have embraced commercialisation and a small industry of misfits brand products that would give, say, minor threat a hernia.

have you ever seen 'decline of western civilisation'? theres a set on that by fear, and that is one of the most cringingly macho things i have ever seen, and american punk/hardcore is never too far away from macho.
