Absolutely amazing song! This regards outrage to US-sponsored juntas, contras, and fascist genocide throughout Central America, especially in the 1970s-1980s period. This is a healthy cry for justice and violence to end violence, and reallly rocks. Don’t pass this up, the studio version is even stronger.
