D.O.A. "Kings of Punk, Hockey and Beer" (Sudden Death)

Sometimes you just have to say, 'fuck it, let's just make the songs actually be about hockey.' Oddly, much of this album (made up of thematically-related archival recordings) is less brutal sounding than some of the angrier fruits of Joey's recent voluminous output (perhaps they Zamboni-ed out the hardcore gashes). But, shit, are you thinking you don't want a CD where DOA cover Stompin' Tom, Freddie Blassie, and BTO? You don't want an all-anthem CD where they have a hockey overtime metaphor love song? You don't want a CD that namechecks John Belushi and Trotsky? Then something in you just don't add up. So you're perfect for a sport that consists of only three quarters.
