Way Back Wednesday!!

Kevin Michael "GG" Allin (August 29, 1956 – June 28, 1993) was an American punk rock singer and songwriter who performed and recorded with many punk groups during his career. GG Allin is perhaps best remembered for his notorious live performances which typically featured transgressive acts, such as Allin defecating and urinating onstage, rolling in feces and often performing naked, committing self injury, and attacking audience members. Although more notorious for his stage antics than for his music, he recorded prolifically, not only in the punk rock genre, but also in spoken word, country, and more traditional-style rock. Though he had a devoted cult following, Allin's music was often poorly recorded and produced, and received mostly negative reviews from critics. However, his status as a cult figure is such that a number of established artists have covered his songs; among them are , the 69 Eyes, Beck, Bus Station Loonies, The Lemonheads and Chemical People. GG is most likely one of the craziest people to ever walk to earth and because of that we salute him
