Days of the Beer, September 11

The beer for today is Olde English 800, or OE, Olde E, Olde Gold...

On September 11, 2001, Leftöver Crack released their first album, Mediocre Generica. Leftöver Crack is an American anarcho-punk band based out of New York. Leftöver Crack is anti-sexist, anti-homophobic, anti-religion, anti-racist, anti-police, anti-fascism, anti-impreialism, anti-capitalism and anti-government. If one can be against something, they probably are.

The album has songs like, "Nazi White Trash", "Atheist Anthem", "Gay Rude Boys Unite", and "Crack City Rockers". The album was originally to be names Shoot the Kids at School, but their record label objected. "They wanted mediocre generic artwork and they wanted a mediocre generic title, so I called it Mediocre Generica and I guarantee you the irony was lost on Epitaph," said Stza, the lead singer.

Leftöver Crack's next album Fuck World Trade, was released on August 31, 2004, and had an image of the second plane flying into the second tower. Due to the name and cover, the album was banned by Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-Mart, Music Land and other places.

This album has the songs "Life Is Pain" (anti-breeding), "Gang Control", "One Dead Cop", and a re-release of one of their first songs "Rock the 40 Oz".



Olde English "800" is a malt liquor made by Miller Brewing Company, best known for being a forty ounce bottle. There are two strengths of it in the U.S., 5.9% in the East, and 7.5% in the west.

Olde English 800 is one of America's leading malt liquor brands. Commonly referred to as "OE800," it offers a smooth, rich taste with a slightly fruity aroma that is a favorite among malt liquor drinkers. Introduced in 1964, Olde English 800 was one of America's original malt liquor brands. Olde English 800 enjoys a diverse consumer base that is linked together by an urban mind-set.

So for the release of Leftöver Crack's first full length album, crack open a cöld OE, and think about how your freedoms have eroded.
