Background: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination_of_Olof_Palme If you want to this song can be seen as ... ★ an offensive attack on a murdered man and democracy itself, or ★ an anarchist call to arms against the institutionalized violence of The System. Both are valid interpretations, but mostly we really just wanted to "max out" the genre. When making rebellious punk rock, holding back is completely pointless!!
