    History[edit]

    I just want some skank!

    Formed in Los Angeles, California, USA, in 1980, this powerful punk/hardcore band featured vocalist Keith Morris (ex- BlackFlag) and guitarist Greg Hetson.

    Singer Keith Morris, who left Black Flag after appearing on its debut single, formed the Circle Jerks with ex-Redd Kross guitarist Greg Hetson in Los Angeles in 1980. Fast, loud and loose, the Jerks became one of the region's most popular and durable slam bands. Immortalized on celluloid in The Decline of Western Civilization punk documentary, the Circle Jerks found vinyl success (via the film soundtrack and their own releases) later. Typically crude and undisciplined, despite occasional offbeat choices of material (Wild in the Streets contains a hyper remake of Jackie DeShannon's "Put a Little Love in Your Heart"), these Jerks managed to become a live success; their shows generate some of the most intense slam-dancing and stage-diving anywhere. (In 1988, Frontier remixed and reissued Wild in the Streets, appending Group Sex to the CD.)

    Lyrics[edit]

    defamation innuendo
    defamation innuendo
    communication to third person
    it's defamation
    my reputation
    defamation, innuendo..
    
    
    moral majority
    
    first there was biology
    then pornography
    so says the moral majority
    
    telling you and me
    what we can watch and read
    i don't need
    some dumb schmuck telling me
    
    nice communities
    middle class families
    too much cleanliness
    too much stupidity
    
    i don't need
    someone telling me
    how to listen and how to read
    
    whatever happened
    to the first amendment
    the way these people talk
    they've never even heard it
    


    put a little love in your heart
