SATURDAY MORNING DOUBLE FEATURE: THE RISE AND FALL OF D.R.I.



Dear D.R.I.-

What the fuck, guys?
1985: 25 songs, 33 minutes. Fast, relevant crossover music featuring lyrics about politics, social issues, and personal struggles.
1989: 12 songs, 43 minutes. Slow, drawn out thrash songs about not wanting to go to school and the perils of rock stardom.
I'll always be a fan of your entire body of work, for reasons I've explained elsewhere. But what happened, D.R.I.?
What happened?!

Your bro,

Shelby
