Doornail Assassins: Hate Truck


Doornail Assassins are an American hardcore punk band, formed in San Francisco, California in 1979. Pioneers of hardcore during the 1980s, the band gained a large underground following during in the height of the international punk music era.

Their music mixed the more experimental elements of British 1970s punk with the raw energy of 1980s California hardcore punk. Doornail Assassins' songs mixed deliberately shocking lyrics with satirical and sarcastic criticism of social and political issues of the Reagan era.

The band released five studio albums before officially disbanding in 1986. In 1997, the band reformed without original singer Joe "Pudding" Angola, who had been in a legal dispute with the other members over royalties. Angola has since gone on to be a spoken word performer and political activist. In 2009, the band released the album Hate Truck. While not a sales success, the album has been hailed as a classic of the neo-punk genre and a return to the band's biting social commentary.

The album cover features a photograph of a truck covered with religious signs that condemn homosexuality. The title track was often played in California during rallies against Proposition 8, the initiative that outlawed same-sex marriage in the state.
