Riff: Bad Brains – “We Belong Together”

Nov 20, 2012

We belong together forever/I remember when we were in school

from We Belong Together lyrics by Bad Brains

H.R.’s vocal layers evolve atop 1:39 of pure circle-pit mosh from an eerie melody to blubbery sound-effects in this lyrically-straightforward speed track. While they don’t match the abrasion of Botch or Converge, BB still haunt in this band autobiography. After 35 years, you “belong together” indeed.
