xhrl_ In terse words, BAD elucidate us on the failings of modernity, underscoring their humorous & surly lyrics with churning punk riffs that adopt more of the tremolo of later DM. Songs tend to use verse & chorus riffs, often united with an intermezzo rioting vocals, stridently shouted like a teenager sticking it to The Man. BAD understand the attitude that both gives the lyrics context & frames riffs as simple without being random or repetitive; it is the craft of metal & punk in miniature. Thrashy! Favorite track: Cause Problems.

about

Birth A.D. Austin, Texas

In the fearsome tradition of crossover thrash forged by acts like D.R.I., S.O.D., C.O.C, and a lot of other bands with three- letter acronyms comes BIRTH A.D.! BIRTH A.D.'s take on crossover's head-on collision of punk, hardcore and speed metal comes with a up-to-date indictment of America. It's angry, fast, catchy as hell, and it's guaranteed to cause total chaos wherever it goes! ... more

Track Name: Equal Opportunity
Come on in, forget the past
Sign some papers, take a test
We've got a job for you to do
To warm a chair like all the rest
Maybe you took tons of drugs
Or sold more than you bought
Maybe you committed crimes
and never quite got caught
Either that or you were just
Another worthless blob
Never mind, you're equal now
Equal at a job

Equal Opportunity
to piss your time away
You'll always have security
if you show up every day
Equal Opportunity
as a hamster on a wheel
Stick it out for long enough
and you'll forget to feel

No one cares how dumb you are
Or corrupted at your soul
There's a place here on the team
Your life's the only toll
No one's going to judge you
no matter what you say
One thing we have in common
we're all slaves to getting paid

Equal Opportunity
for a carrot on a stick
chew on it until you realize that it's a trick
Equal Opportunity
as a cog in the machine
pulled into the gears
before you find out what it means
Track Name: Failed State
Failed State, Failed State
Failed State, Failed State
Failed State, Failed State
We’re living in a Failed State

Don’t deny it, don’t defy it
Please don’t try to justify it

Failed State, Failed State
Failed State, Failed State
Failed State, Failed State
We’re living in a Failed State
Track Name: Kill Everybody
I’m always hating wherever I go
Cause voices are loud and IQs are low
They’re going to church and watching TV
believing everything they hear or see
Someone tell me how we got this far
when everyone I meet is a complete retard
I’m sick of the crime, sick of the pollution
Allow me to offer a better solution

Kill everybody
Humanity is lost
Exterminate, depopulate
no matter what the cost
Kill everybody
Society is dead
Put it down forever
with a bullet to the head

Too many people in the world today
Fat and stupid and they get in the way
Working all hours to stay ahead
Trying to be rich by the time they’re dead
Screwing each other for nothing at all
Most of them need their backs to the wall
Millions of morons, a joke of a nation
Commence with the process of extermination

Kill everybody
Humanity is lost
Exterminate, depopulate
no matter what the cost
Kill everybody
Society is dead
Put it down forever
with a bullet to the head

BLOW UP THE WORLD!
KILL- it’s too late start over
EVERYBODY- start digging 7 billion graves
KILL- because we’ve run out of answers
EVERYBODY – and there's nothing left here to save

I’m always hating wherever I go
Cause voices are loud and IQs are low
They’re going to church and watching TV
believing everything they hear or see
Why does life have to be so hard
When everyone else is a complete retard
How in the fuck did we get this far?
Someone push the button and start a war!
Track Name: Bring Back the Draft
Bring back the draft
This generation's crap!
Line them up and ship them out
make sure they don't come back

Bring back the draft
Eliminate the chaff
We'll be doing fine at home
While they get cut in half

Bring back the draft
Get rid of all our trash
Let the bodies pile up
Then put them in a sack

Bring back the draft
And send them to Iraq
Pack them off to fight and die
While we sit back and laugh

Bring back the draft
Bring back the draft
We don't need 'em
Don't wanna feed 'em
Bring back the draft

Bring back the draft
Bring back the draft
We won't be crying
When they're all dying
Bring back the draft
Track Name: Cause Problems
Make a bomb and set it off at the mall
Steal a car and run it into a wall
Take a shit in a public place
Beat someone up if you don’t like his face
Rob a house and steal a gun
Go to school and shoot everyone
Fuck things up as much as you can
Don’t be a part of their master plan

Cause problems!
Cause problems - every day!

Smoke some dope and don’t get a job
Be a part of the welfare mob
Get someone pregnant then totally bail
Do your part to make society fail
Burn down churches and desecrate graves
Show the world you’re not a slave
Fuck things up as much as you can
Don’t be a part of their master plan

Cause problems!
Cause problems - every day!
Cause problems!
Cause problems - every day!
START NOW!
Track Name: No Jobs (Don't Work)
I don’t want a job
I don’t need a job
I won’t get a job
Someone else can do it

I don’t want a job
I don’t need a job
I won’t get a job
Because they’re fucking stupid
(x 4)

NO JOBS!!!! NO JOBS!!!!

I don’t want a job
I don’t need a job
I won’t get a job
Someone else can do it - NO JOBS!

You work too much for not enough
You work too much for not enough
You work too much for not enough
You work too much for not enough
Don’t work!
Track Name: No, Man
No, man, you can't do that
You are a parasite, stupid and fat
Wrecking what is good to profit fast
Then make your escape
with blood-covered cash

You'll never stop, you will always lie
Everything you touch will wither and die
Life of denial, nothing is true
No solution except to kill you

No man, no problem
No man, no problem

Dictators are usually right
They always know it's better to fight
Morons don't change, they only destroy
Treating the world like a personal toy

Education is a hopeless goal
Better to teach with a bullet hole
Stack up the bodies to cover with dirt
Then maybe we'll see what society's worth

No man, no problem
No man, no problem
Track Name: Parasites Die!
They always need a cigarette
or any change that they can get
They're really making me upset
Parasites Die!

They ask you for a pizza slice
They're not ashamed to ask you twice
I'd rather have a case of lice
Parasites Die!

They always need a place to crash
and use up all your extra cash
then fill your living room with trash
Parasites Die!

They're always on the handout line
They think that being a leech is fine
Fucking ghouls without a spine
Parasites Die!

NO – you can't have anything from me!
NO – you can't wander through life for free!
NO - I'm so sick of your fucking routine
NO – I can tell you don't know what I mean
NO – you life's a disgrace
NO – you can't stay at my place
NO - just get out of my face

They try to make you feel bad
for what they say they could have had
I'm really starting to get mad
Parasites Die!

Not resourceful on their own
they plague us with their whiny drone
Wish they would leave me alone
Parasites Die!

Their promises left unfulfilled
and the bullshit that they build
All of them need to be killed
Parasites Die!

Go to hell you hipster bum
I'm sick of all you loser scum
I'm going out to get a gun
Parasites Die!
Track Name: This Scene Sucks
All the bullshit, all the lying, all the whining, all the crying
All the things that make you say this scene sucks!

All the scumbags, all the thugs, all the small and shitty clubs
Is there any real surprise at all that this scene sucks!

All the losers, all the nerds, all the boozers, all the turds
Make you look around and think this scene sucks!

All the fakes and all the dorks, all the flakes and all the jocks
Maybe now you'll realize this scene sucks!

Illusion of community but bullshit smiles won't see it through
I'm building an immunity by putting miles between me and you!

All the lying, all the blame, all the games that people play
All the gossip, it’s so gay- this scene sucks!

All the morons with their beers, all the bands who last a year
I wish I could get out of here - this scene sucks!

All the fuck-ups, all the fights, all the wasted Friday nights
Wonder why I’m so uptight? This scene sucks!

All the ripoffs, all the dicks, all the fat and stupid chicks
It’s enough to make you kill yourself

THIS SCENE SUCKS!!!
