It’s his right to.
I don’t mind, and I consider myself somewhere between liberal and conservative.
In a new interview, Glenn Danzig spoke about how the song “Mother” was essentially a statement on the Parents Music Resource Center, the committee that formed and whose greatest accomplishment was the “Parental Advisory” sticker.
The group “wanted to tell people what they could listen to and what they couldn’t, what they could record. It was basically coming down to the idea that he wouldn’t let anybody record any music that he didn’t think you should be doing. There was going to be an organization that would tell you what you could and couldn’t record. And certainly if you couldn’t record it, you couldn’t put it out. It was really fascist.
“My view on Democrats is that they’re fascists disguised as liberals, or liberal moderates,” says Glenn.
“You’re not allowed to say anything that they don’t agree with. You’re not allowed to do anything. Also, the whole Obama, ‘I can kill anybody with a drone with no trial,’ is kind of disturbing. I’m surprised that more people who are supposedly liberal aren’t more disturbed by it. I think whatever Obama does is OK with them, because he’s Obama. It’s bullshit. It’s the same thing with the PMRC telling you, ‘Bands can go on trial for their music.’ What’s next, Wagner is going to get arrested? What? He’s dead.”
Glenn also says that covers album he was working on is done, and coming out in late fall.
