Licensed to Ill was so different then anything I knew or heard. We must have listened to that tape a zillion times. "..I'm on the run the cops got my gun"...That beat was great. Now Henry Rollins-That dude Fucking Sucked! He was a total hypocrite, bully, douche


TappedIn2111 t1_iy96vug wrote

He was and he does admit to it. But I firmly believe he came a long way. Nowadays I find him to be very introspective. He also is a big advocate for human rights. Maybe give him another chance.


Dogfish1313 t1_iy99f0n wrote

Good old age and introspection. I’ll check him out.

Ya but a live Blackflag show in 1985 sorted us all out. No offense. But people got stabbed at the club.


Dogfish1313 t1_iyayoab wrote

Oh I know a buddy of mine got stabbed. Goth, punk, Straight edge, Nazi loons… those clubs were wild

I‘m listening to the No Dogs In Space podcast atm to catch up to the punk/hc scenes history in NY. Coming from the other side of the Atlantic I learn a lot about what you experienced. What a wild time.

My name is MCA I got a license to kill, I think you know what time it is, it's time to get ill...I got that album when I was 14. I'm 50 and still remember the lyrics to the whole thing.

Correct. They’re either cut off or not tied at the top and just flap down. It was quite a look

Why does Henry, the largest friend, not simply eat the other three?

It would be impossible, how's Henry supposed to eat a 4th person who isn't there?

I edited that after you saw that. HOWEVER WHOS TAKING THE PICTURE!??!!

Kinda looks like Adam’s explaining how cameras work to Rollins.

Went up to the roof kuz he was about to have a nervous breakdown but his friends said “check your head.”

To me, it looks like the Beastie Boys are harrasing a senior citizen. Poor old Henry Rollins. Lol.


sonofabitchXmustXpay t1_iy758xd wrote

Henry came straight from work to hang out with the crew. Cut his pants into shorts but forgot his other shoes. Upset but still took a picture.

Literally the only rock singer whose birthday I know, cos it's also his publishing company.


TheBlitzkid46 OP t1_iy6yrc1 wrote

If only I could hang out with them and hear some stories about their days in the punk scene of the early 80's


mirthquake t1_iy7dnjx wrote

Rollins released a spoken word memoir called Get in the Van about his days with Black Flag. It's full of great stories and insights.

Saw NDiS referenced in another thread, I’ve binged the misfits and damned episodes so far it’s very good!


dropticket t1_iy98auu wrote

Henry Rollins went on tour just telling stories for like two hours. It was nuts, the guy didn't hardly take a breath or move from his stool the entire time. Highly recommend if he does a show near you.


MrJohnnyDangerously t1_iy75sbe wrote

I saw them on this tour


RockinSteadyClyde t1_iy7z1hc wrote

Me too. It was awesome. They played in a small building at the Indiana State Fair Grounds. Rollins went on a huge anti-drug rant at the end of his set. Then the Beasties came on and had a dude in a chicken costume with a basket full of joints walking through the crowd throwing them everywhere. It was crazy. I lost a hat, a shoe, got a bloody nose and met Ricky Powell (sp?) by the tour bus. Gooooooood times.


TheBlitzkid46 OP t1_iy7bpse wrote

I saw them in Boston with fIREHOSE and Basehead in May of that year

Watt still my favorite artist ever. Currently laid up with a bad knee.

MutedHornet87 t1_iy748tx wrote

God forbid I have a different opinion and find them insufferable to listen to. Grating is a great term to describe it. They’re like nails on a chalkboard.


Thprop t1_iy7gtwt wrote

That brings back some memories of a rare time in popular (sorta) music. Black Flag at the 930 in D.C. on an unspeakably hot and humid summer’s night—flat draughts, Henry with hair like Jim Morrison in his prime and a pair of black running shorts he might’ve borrowed from Kira—very Iggyesque.


monkeyz_unkle t1_iy6zr7r wrote

That tour was amazing! Cypress Hill was the opener.


MutedHornet87 t1_iy70uem wrote

I just saw them open for Slipknot in May. I wasn’t going to go because they were opening but they weren’t bad


tommy_pt t1_iy83s6u wrote

Saw this tour at the Roseland in NYC! Rollins band opened for Beastie Boys on Check Your Head tour 92’93. It was a moss pit the entire shows. The energy from Henry Rollins and the momentum from Check your head was insane. Beastie as live punk band was the best shit ever. It was either porno funk,rap,or punk with them all playing instruments. Still might be the best show I’ve seen. I wear glasses and I was 16. Back then i would wear glasses into pit and lose them at some point. This would happen all the time. The only reason I’m telling this part is because i would tell some random that my glasses got lost and they would stop pit . Everyone in pit would stop,and look for my glasses. This happened a couple times. Nobody got angry with me,they all would just stop slamming to help me find my glasses. Even back then I thought that was so noice of everyone,now that would never happen. Beastie Boys on that our was epic though

Henry was brilliant in the movie He Never Died, one of my favourites

I saw them on that tour at Rutgers. It was Beastie Boys, Rollins Band and Da Lench Mob


dissolutewastrel t1_iy88wq3 wrote

Fellow RU grad here. I saw Run-DMC at the nadir of their popularity in '99 at the SAC for $5. Best show I ever saw. Got a poster signed...that was later stolen out of my dorm room. I still have a pic I took with JMJ (RIP)


Jaytweak37 t1_iy89gea wrote

That’s awesome. I got to see Run DMC at a surprise show in the mid 90s. I can’t remember the exact year. A friend of mine heard them announce the show on a radio station and rushed to my house to get me out of bed. It was a small club somewhere just outside of Seaside Heights and there were probably less than 100 people there. It was a great show.

Didn't realise Rollins had one of those long slidey dildos on his leg. Good for him.

Mike D and Henry look like they were unhappy about being forced into the pic with the overly exuberant MCA and Ad Rock.

philodendrin t1_iyb5c00 wrote

Mr. Rollins never looks impressed. Yet he has a knack for expressing a tender kindness and appreciation for a wide variety of things. He is a thinker, never without an opinion that is reasoned and rational.

Loved Beastie Boys growing up. As an adult, a couple interviews I've listened to turned me off. Can't speak to MCA, but the other two are just kinda arrogant assholes. Dissapointing.

You mean the actual, legendary HENRY FUCKING ROLLINS? No way, dude! His music - heavy AF. Whether he was touring with Black Flag or his eponymous band. His spoken word - alternately hilarious and thoughtful, and often both at the same time. His poetry - wicked disturbing in the best way.

The Beastie Boys are great - but Henry is something very special, and I hope you take the time to consider his full catalog of awesome.

Oh, In Flames. I’ve seen them get called different things. They’re probably the heaviest I listen to.

I prefer their more modern stuff, from Reroute on. Sounds of a Playground Fading, Mirror’s Truth

Some of their stuff isn’t melodic enough for me

I don’t really get into all the metal sub genres. There’s a new one every day.
