Riff: Bad Brains – “Come Down”

Nov 20, 2012

(Instrumental)

from Come Down lyrics by Bad Brains

By far the simplest cut on the album, this 1:25-length instrumental is also the best hardcore/punk song here. The uptempo dissonance between the main riff’s chords makes “Come Down” seem way less dated than the other punk songs on “Into The Future” – here BB actually live up to the album’s name.
