D.O.A. - War On 45 MLp - 1982

Classic D.O.A. This is the UK pressing.

Alternative Tentacles.

It's kinda "funny" that in the graphic on the back cover it sez "Die For Exxon," and then seven years after the release of this west coast Canadian masterpiece, the Exxon Valdez ran aground, spilling millions of gallons, err, litres of oil on the Pacific Northwest coastline.

But in the meantime... 30 years on, and I still don't know all the lyrics to "Let's Fuck." Makes it kinda hard when yer trying to romance some pretty lady. ;)

Me, in Toronto fuckin' Canada, eh!

Thanks for this. Bought this when it came out, but it had Rich Bitch on it, a brilliant slow track - one of their best. But cannot find it now. Has this been excised and why?

I think there was two versions of this 12" and this one was the UK release, the american one has a different cover as well.

I may be bit behind on this as it was posted 5 years ago, you may well have the UK pressing cover, but as you can just about make out from the back cover track listing, you haven't posted the correct MP3s.

I have mine in front of me and the tracks are:

1. America the Beautiful
2. Unknown
3. Rich Bitch
4. Lets Fuck
5. War
6. I Hate You
7. War in the East
8. Class War

The track listing on the labels is different to the track listing on the back cover, the label listing ones are correct. This is a weird one.

It sounds like you've got a US version disc in a UK version cover.

The US and UK versions had different tracks.

Yes that's the conclusion I came to as well.
