Crass - The Feeding of the 5000 - Crass Records

Crass is the band that is often credited with starting the anarcho-punk movement. Even if they didn't start it, they sure were the most actively involved. It also seems like the more I find out about them, the more I love them. Anyways, Crass started in 1977 using music as a means to deliver their message. The Feeding of the 5000 was their first album from 1978. When they originally went to get it pressed, the people at the pressing plant wouldn't let them press the first song, Asylum, because of the lyrical content. They removed the track and replaced it with 2 minutes of silence, and titled the song The Sound of Free Speech. Later, when they released it on their own Crass Records, they replaced the song and titled the album The Feeding of the 5000 (The Second Sitting). If you want to learn anything more about Crass (which there is a lot of interesting information about).
