I Gave Up Trying

The last (and best) Rip Offs single, and one that supposedly put MRR into a tizzy because of the words to "Sleeparound". Yeah, whatever, hippie. An insanely small amount of these were made as a two-sided record with an extra song, "Fast Livin'", pressed into the normally blank b-side; "You are a winner" and "Fast Livin by Shane White" were etched into the run-out grooves of the two-sided version, and lucky for you that's the version I have, so you get an extra song here. Punk rock!

I can see why MRR got in a tizzy. I had to turn off "Sleeparound" before it was even half over.

And I ain't no fuckin' hippie!

I don't know which writer got upset, but you'd think MRR would know better than to let a bunch of silly punk rockers with nylons over their heads get a rise out of them... which is probably what Shane White intended in the first place.

The mp3 files on this post are now listen-only (non-downloadable) files. TOUGH LUCK, HIPPIE! No, actually, for those of you who missed the boat, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original files.
