He died at the age of just 36 years old from a heroin overdose shortly after trashing a nightclub that cut his set short after just two songs. GG Allin was known for being causing chaos and violence at his shows, but his fans loved his ethos and his stage presence.

He was the epitome of anti-authoritarianism and lived by his own rules. Many strongly disagreed with his antics and ultimately this reckless attitude towards life is what lead to his death.

Anyone who knows of GG either hates or loves him, most likely both. He would probably hate this record as much as he hated everything else. We’re all about the hate so why not show it in a way that gives us the least amount of punk points? Someone’s bound to get mad at the fact that he gets a tribute record anyway

26 years after his demise, his legacy still lives on and now an independent record label is releasing a limited edition vinyl tribute record called ‘Hated In The Cosmos’.

The record will feature four bands covering GG Allin songs. The bands are POISON HEART (Poland), THE BOATSMEN (Sweden), BARON X AND THE VON BASTARDS (France) and ZERO ZERO (Sweden).

GG Allin songs that will appear on the 300 limited edition pressing are Gimme Some Head, I Wanna Fuck Myself, Dead or Alive and Live Fast Die Fast.

The record is set to be released in July of this year via Heavy Medication Records. Order the record here.
