Tim's on the right track. There is music out there that, along with its
lyrics, begins to convey the appropriate level of anger and outrage.
Unfortunately most of my early punk is on LPs and thus at work. All my
Nirvana is at work too, otherwise I'd quote Cobain describing a couple of
teenage rapists (said to have been "inspired" by a Nirvana song) as "wastes
of sperm and eggs".
