Bad Brains

DC hardcore vets Bad Brains, known for their blistering live performances, are now doing the same to peoples' tongues, thanks to their new Fire Burn Babylon Hot Sauce. The band's Dr. Know and Darryl Jenifer created the recipe for this small-batch, scotch bonnet chile sauce that is sure to cause re-ignition of your tastebuds. Says Jenifer:

Fire Babylon is a perfect blend of heat and sweet, with the "Secret 77" recipe. Dr. Know and I have returned to Hot Sauce Heaven with this roots, rock, rubba dub style hot sauce.
The bottle's label was designed by street artist Shepard Fairey and you can order Bad Brains' hot sauce via their website.

Meanwhile, Bad Brains' H.R. performed at the Salad Days celebration in Washington D.C. right before New Year's.

when they gonna rock the HR pez dispenser, the lunch box, THE FUCKING BOBBLE HEAD DOLLS? and, you know, turn themselves into money grubbing whores like kiss? it was over for bad brains around the time quickness was released and HR either lost his mind or believed too deeply in his own legend. tough to say. either way, they were horrible live around 1987. today? you couldn't pay me to see that nonsense live. king ain't got on no clothes, though sometimes he wears a fucking motorcycle helmet on stage.

8:15, just use the hot sauce. It makes doing it dry seem easier.

They haven't put out a great record in a couple of weeks.

Into the future!

Bad Brains put out 1 good record. This hot sauce shit is a joke. I guess anything for money.

fuck all y'all, build a nation ruled. Can't say the same for the new one, unfortunately.

9:41: 1 good good record? You are a complete idiot.

ah, i stand corrected. that daytona beach show was fucking amazing and it's a year after i claimed BB were no longer worth a damn. and they've got more than one good album. rock for light is epic, but the ROIR tape is legendary. can't fuck with those two. i against i has its moments, as does quickness. but c'mon.

If I brought a bottle of this back in time to DC circa 79', would that whole self-righteous hardcore scene disappear like that Marty McFly picture? Would Henry Rollins now be selling insurance, or still scooping ice cream with Ian? More importantly, would this sauce make my taint tingle if applied liberally to the area? I have so many questions...

1:38-And you will receive no answers except to you're last question.
