Riff: Bad Brains – “Fun”

Nov 20, 2012

Let’s have fun, let’s have fun, we all have fun/Music is fun, school is fun, love is fun

from Fun lyrics by Bad Brains

Bad Brains again channel Faith No More for a song that stands out only during the bridge, thanks to some syncopated bass and melodic guitar. H.R.’s harmonies surpass his moronic “these things are fun” mantra, and BB again fail to hit the mark in the raised bar of modern (independent) hardcore/metal.
