In God We Trust, Inc

In God We Trust, Inc.

In God We Trust, Inc. is a hardcore punk album by the Dead Kennedys; it is now reissued with the Plastic Surgery Disasters album. The thrashing lightning-fast beats and shouted (often jumbled) vocals, on the first six tracks, resembles Washington D.C.'s punk bands of the time: more than on any other Dead Kennedys release, the music here is conventionally "hardcore". The album spends the first two tracks attacking organized religion before going on to attack other such diverse topics as Nazis, President Ronald Reagan, and the pesticide Kepone. "We've Got a Bigger Problem Now" is a lounge jazz remake of "California Über Alles" from the previous album with Ronald Reagan instated in place of Jerry Brown. The album also includes a cover of the theme song from the 1960s show, "Rawhide". On the original vinyl version, Side A was tracks 1-5 and Side B was tracks 6-8. On the original version on tape, Side A contained all 8 songs, with Side B being left intentionally blank. Printed on Side B was the explanation, "Home taping is killing big time entertainment industry profits. Therefore side two of this tape has been left blank for your convenience."
