(police radio tape:I don't know if you can,
but can you get an owner for Ons,
that's O-N-S,Junior Market,
the address is 1934 East Aneheim,
all the windows are busted out,
and it's like a free-for-all in here
and uh the owner shouldat least come
down here and see if he can secure his business,
if he wants to...

April 26th, 1992,
there was a riot on the streets,
tell me where were you?
You were sittin' home watchin' your TV,
while I was paticipatin' in some anarchy.

First spot we hit it was my liqour store.
I finally got all that alcohol I can't afford.
With red lights flashin' time to retire,
And then we turned that liquor store into a structure fire.

Next stop we hit it was the music shop,
It only took one brick to make that window drop.
Finally we got our own p.a.
Where do you think I got this guitar that you're hearing today?
Hey!

(call fire, respond mobil station.
alamidos in Anahiem,
its uhh flamin up good.
10-4 Alamidos in Anaheim)

-Never doin no time-

When we returned to the pad to unload everything,
It dawned on me that I need new home furnishings.
So once again we filled the van until it was full,
since that day my livin' room's been more comfortable.

Cause everybody in the hood has had it up to here,
It's getting harder and harder and harder each and every year.

Some kids went in a store with thier mother,
I saw her when she came out she was gettin some pampers.

They said it was for the black man,
they said it was for the mexican,
and not for the white man.

But if you look at the streets it wasn't about Rodney King,
It's bout this ****ed up situation and these ****ed up police.
It's about coming up and staying on top
and screamin' 187 on a mother ****in' cop.
It's not written on the paper it's on the wall.
National guard??!
Smoke from all around,

bo! bo! bo!

(units, units be advised there
is an attempt 211 to arrest now at 938 temple,
938 temple... 30 subjects with bags...
tryin to get inside the cb's house)

-as long as I'm alive, I'mma live illegal-

Let it burn, wanna let it burn,
wanna let it burn, wanna wanna let it burn

-I'm feelin' Sad and Blue-

Riots on the streets of Miami,
oh, Riots on the streets of Chicago,
oh, on the streets of Long Beach,
mmm, and San Francisco (Boise Idaho),
Riots on the streets of Kansas City
(Salt Lake, Hunnington Beach, CA),
Tuscalusa Alabama (Arcada Compton Mischigan),
Cleveland Ohio,
Fountain Valley (Texas, Barstow - Let's do this every year),
Paramount, Victorville (Twice a Year),
Eugene OR, Eureka CA (Let it burn, let it burn),
Hesperia (Oh, ya let it burn, wont'cha wont'cha let it burn),
Santa Barbara, Nevada, (let it burn)
Phoenix Arizona,
San Diego, Lakeland Florida, (let it burn)
****in... 29 Palms (wontcha let it burn)

(any units assist 334 willow,

Pleading ignorance here, but why is the song April 26, 1992, when the verdict didn't come down until April 29?

I barely remember that. Those cops were all guilty though.

This thread sparked my interest so I read about the Reginald Denny video. That video always makes me sick to my stomach when I see it - until now.

I read that the guy who threw the brick at his head is in prison for murder and won't be eligible for parole for 47 years. The other guy got shot and is dead. Good.

Me, too. I remember an episode of In Living Color that had David Alan Grier and Jim Carrey as Rodney King and Reginald Denny. Their advice was, "Stay in your cars!"

I was at the Gym watching some Korean guy screaming mad after getting robbed.

Somehow it seemed to lack the sincerity of Selma, Alabama...

For some reason I can't recall I really didn't pay attention to the LA Riots in 92...most likely cause I was 9, but damned if Wikipedia doesn't have it covered.

Sublime. Very good band actually. Well if your demographic is the 20-30 range. Kind of a reggae feel. Upbeat music.
