Default The Exploited

Does anyone like them? I like them a lot, but they are definetly not for everyone.. If your going to listen to them don't get sex and violence they definetly have better songs than saying that 25 times in a row...

As opposed to British hardcore bands coming out of where else?

Terrible band.

If it wasn't for Oi they'd be the lowest rung on the punk ladder.

I could never call them terrible. I think The Exploited were the first punk rock band I ever heard.

This song was played daily on my school bus (by older kids - in a time when kids were allowed to run amok on the school bus) and it's impossible for me to dislike it: Sex and Violence

This in part is due to the fact that The Exploited probably remain the most violent and rowdy band in the history of punk.

Unlike Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys Wattie Buchan didn't grow up in a middle class suburb and attend University. He's Scottish ghetto trash who ended up joining the military.

In short, he's simply not the most brilliant person on the planet, but his engrained working class attitute as earned the band a consistent populous following.

So it bugs me when some self righteous anarchist preaches that the Exploited were facists because they didn't perscribe to their political values.
Wattie Buchan did however write terrible songs and wore mohawk wigs. That's pretty poseurish if you ask me, which no one really is but whatever. Jello Biafra would have wrote intelligent lyrics despite his "middle class suburb"an upbringing, as he is an intelligent person. Wattie probably couldn't do University because he's too stupid.

Discharge had more of an influence on bands like Slayer and Metallica. Discharge also wrote halfway intelligent songs, rather then oi oi oi letz fuk punx!11!1!1!

They WERE a terrible band when they came out and lacked direction writing mindless ditties lick **** a mod etc but Troops Of Tomorrow is a very solid Punk album with genuine focus and with a lot less of the Oi! mentality.

I still much prefer Discharge and G.B.H though. Conflict are probably one of the finest British Hardcore bands but no one really talks about them a great deal unfortunately.

Wattie was/is kind of a ****head. And what I've heard of them, I don't like much.

Seriously? Punk's Not Dead? That's supposed to be a rebuttal?

They had a perfect crunchy sound, enough so that d-beat exists?

you know....

I LIKE Troops Of Tomorrow! There are a few fans around but they have made some duds IMO.

As for not liking Discharge's 'See Nothing...' album It's one of my all time fave Punk albums.
