    I grew up with Sam, he was a good kid Alter boy at St Ambrose and athlete growing up. Then he found dope

    Fang is an American hardcore punk band, formed in Berkeley, California in 1980. The group was originally part of the punk rock scene in Berkeley, California in the 1980s. Fang initially broke up in 1989 when vocalist Sam McBride was sent to prison for killing his girlfriend, Dixie Lee Carney. Upon his release, in 1995, McBride changed his name to Sammytown and reformed Fang.

    This song covered many times

    Hence why he killed his girlfriend. She lacked the cocknballs he so desired.

    I agree.

    Apparently that's what broke them up tho, one of 'em got caught.

    Smoking and drinking that is.
