You Give Love A Bad Name was GG Allin’s third official studio effort of GG Allin, this time recording with The Holy Men. A sound that’s fast-tempoed and has the garage-hardcore sound that was originally heard on Eat My Fuc, and later The Suicide Sessions. Originally released and distributed by Aware in 1987, it was reissued on CD a decade later in ’97 bundled with six bonus tracks; five tracks with Mark Sheehan and an interview conducted by Jeff Koch via phone while GG was incarcerated in 1991 (transcript soon).
