Millions of Dead Cops was MDC's first LP, and its twelve songs were released on vinyl with Radical Records in 1982.
Radical Records was Dave Dictor's own record label and also released DRI, C2D (Condemned To Death), Dicks, BGK, Reagan Youth, the Offenders and more.
Millions of Dead Cops developed as a brilliant album, successfully combining personal rage and angst with genuine social/political concerns.
The song "John Wayne was a Nazi" and "Born to Die," which both originally appear on MDC's (The Stains') first single, were released in cleaner, more precise, faster and slightly lengthier versions on Millions of Dead Cops.
Also included were classic hardcore songs like "Business on Parade," "Corporate Deathburger," "I Hate Work," and the epics "Dead Cops/America's So Straight," (in which Dictor wails on cops as being brutalizers, racists, Klan and Mafia members,) "I Remember" and "American Achievements," --and each song contribute unique elements toward the eventual heightening of MDC's debut outing as an essential early piece of punk history. The album was recorded in Houston TX, cover art by Carlos Lowry.
Another supa-great album from this golden hardcore year 1982, encoded from original vinyl, enjoy and jump around.
And yep, this is the band that made me choose "DeathBurger" as the name of the fanzine. Hello Ronnie!
