Blank generation

There's nothing I love more than someone sticking it to The Man.

Jello Biafra has been doing it for longer than I care to remember.

Take a close look at the cassette above and you'll see what I mean.

Side one of cassette version of the Dead Kennedys' In God we trust EP was the EP itself.

Side two was intentionally left blank so that people could record whatever they wanted on it.

Back in the 80s when this was released the industry was claiming that home taping was killing music.

Of course we now know it was the industry that killed it not taping.

Which is why Jello's comment printed onto side two of the cassette is so interesting.
