Body Count – Body Count (album: Body Count 1992)

This next song is by Body Count. The band was founded by the Rapper Ice T.They became very famous right after they have released their first album “Body Count” back in 1992. It’s a great album. All songs are about drug abuse and police corruption. It made its headlines in America. I think they just wanted to get famous and the easy way to do it is to shock people.

The music in this song is amazing! I love the guitar sound very much. Of course this song is about the cops in America and racism towards the black people in America. It’s also about the hard life in the black neighbourhoods. I know nothing about it, only the stuff that you see on TV and Movies. I’m guessing it’s not an easy life out there but there must be something they can change to better their life. Get rid of all the gangs and weapons and focus on better education and legal businesses. Check out this cool song...oh I almost forgot - sorry for all the swear words in this song!

Lyrics: Body Count Lyrics

The Controversy behind the release of this album:
The album encountered controversy before its original release. It was originally set to be distributed under the title Cop Killer, named for the song of the same name, which criticizes violent police officers, and was interpreted as an attack against the entire police force. At a Time-Warner shareholders' meeting, actor Charlton Heston stood and read lyrics from the song "KKK Bitch" to an astonished audience and demanded that the company take action.
