    By Mark on Apr 9, 2020

  5. INDEED HE WAS!!!

    By John on Apr 9, 2020

  6. I never said that fuckin shit . Ray Charles was an old school coon . No white women or hi yeller babies for him . I hate the modern coons , the rappers and hippady hoppers who fuck the white bitches

    By Derrick on Apr 9, 2020

  7. Derrick, the white women are to blame . They’re the ones spreading their legs for the niggers.

    By Cecil on Apr 9, 2020

  8. no cecil. yo mama’s t’ blame. she spread her legs for me an’ i fucked her ‘til she cried like a baby. 7 months later you popped out premature and retarded.

    By Coon Daddy on Apr 9, 2020

  9. Shut the fuck up coon. I’ll whip u and your momma u black bastard. I come from a sundown town. No niggers allowed after sundown. u dig spook. U need to know your place sambo. Time has come for whitey to exterminate the nigger. Mass lynchings and mass shootings. Lets bring back Jim Crowe. Sit in the back of the bus. Drink from the nigger fountain.Whitey will not serve u at the restaurants. Sit in the balcony. Do not look at our women spook

    By David Duke on Apr 9, 2020

  10. Daisy Duke- those days are over and are not coming back, and your post could be considered making a terroristic threat. Federal governments tend to take note- and action- when they see such things.

    By Mark on Apr 9, 2020

  11. Bloviating on a bootleg music blog could hardly be described as a threat Hebrew Mark . Don’t you think the world has a more important problem right now ?

    By HHH on Apr 9, 2020

  12. Guys, I too would welcome back Jim Crow , but sad to say it’s not happening. Lyndon Baines Johnson destroyed that when he sighed the civil rights act in the sixties. 64 65 66 and 67 were the years that set the course for the country’s ruination. Look at us today . And in another half century the white race probably won’t exist . Thank LBJ a Power hungry southern racist himself for that .

    By HHH on Apr 9, 2020

  13. Hey hhh , I still have my parents Goldwater / Miller 64 pin on buttons. I wonder how the country would look today if Barry had won.

    By Cecil on Apr 9, 2020

  14. david puke is your real name. all you do is come here and puke all over the place. i woulda fucked your mammy but she smelled like a shitty old outhouse. so i put a clothespin on my nose and let her suck my prick. she liked it so much she shit all over herself. damn yore mammy stunk.

    By Coon Daddy on Apr 9, 2020

  15. goldwater was a brain dead southern jackass just like you cecil the seasick sea serpent. I’m beanie boy haha!

    By Coon Daddy on Apr 9, 2020

  16. I always liked Frank fuckin Sinatra , solo and with Dean and Sammy. It was definitely a fuckin shock when Anti informed me that just like Tony Bennett he was another motherfuckin guinea bastard

    By Derrick on Apr 9, 2020

  17. David Duke makes me puke.

    By Derrick on Apr 9, 2020

  18. LBJ was a southern redneck power hungry buffoon. Goldwater a Jew . Some choice . We were fucked either way .

    By HHH on Apr 9, 2020

  19. I’ll slap the black off your face BOY. Time u niggers learn to respect the white man and call me SIR. I;ll take a switch to your black ass. U sound like a black buck and I would whip you into shape to plow the fields. I would screw your mammy like the song Brown Sugar and u watch BOY

    By David Duke on Apr 9, 2020

  20. Goldwater would have been better though as he wouldn’t have cowered to the black apes and signed all the legislation Johnson did , also he would have bombed Vietnam off the face of the map instead of escalating the war .

    By HHH on Apr 9, 2020

  21. I love this racist website. Y’all sound like a bunch of good ole boys. Who would of thought, a musical racist website. Thank you Covid 10. Of course we need to teach some of you the ways of white america. White power

    By David Duke on Apr 9, 2020

  22. You sound like one of us HHH. Its good to see that America hasnt gone totally into the shitter

    By David Duke on Apr 9, 2020

  23. LBJ that southern Texan redneck dichead destroyed our country. The Kennedys hated him. He was a god damn nigger lover

    By David Duke on Apr 9, 2020

  30. I ain’t done turnin you assholes in to the admins. here. You think your smart but your gonna see that you ain’t!

    By Derrick on Apr 9, 2020

  31. You go girl!

    By Derrick The Snitch on Apr 9, 2020

  32. Derriere: The first “ain’t” should be “am not.” “Turnin” needs a “g.” “here” should be capitalized. “Your” should be “you’re.” The last “ain’t” should be “are not.”

    Your lack of education is as pathetic as your lack of human decency-I suppose the two go hand in hand.

    By Mark on Apr 9, 2020

  33. i looked yore daddy right in the eye derrick you snitch - the brown-eye - right when i stuck my prick in his ass. he didn’t call ME boy - he called me his MAN! boy he squealed like a pig cus he was a pig. when i was done i let him lick the shit and cum off my rod.

    By Coon Daddy on Apr 10, 2020

  36. You got no proof and I ain’t no snitch . I only want you gone

    By Derrick on Apr 10, 2020

  37. Im standing on the corner whistling. wearing my heels and looking like quite the woman.

    Standing on the corner watching all the boys go by
    standing on the corner giving them all the eye
    Brother you don’t know a nicer occupation
    Matter of fact, neither do I
    Than standing on a corner watching all the boyz
    Watching all the boyz, watching all the boyz go by

    By Mark on Apr 10, 2020

    By Mark on Apr 10, 2020

  47. How does it feel to be part of the trolled crowd Hebrew Mark?

    By HHH on Apr 10, 2020

  48. And. It’s not me doing the trolling . I’m basically just sitting back reading all of the lunacy from the many idiots here .

    By HHH on Apr 10, 2020

  49. No no triple H you are one of the trolls.
    Do you not understand what a troll IS?

    By swappers on Apr 11, 2020

  50. HHH-Doesn’t bother me, but Feds will be informed if someone posts illegal information or threats under my name.

    By Mark on Apr 11, 2020

  51. Yes , I suppose everyone who says anything controversial is a troll . Like I hate Violent Black woman beating black apes and rapist and child molesting Jews like Weinstein and Epstein.

    By HHH on Apr 11, 2020

  52. LBJ had a Big one , he named it Jumbo . He would whip it out occasionally to intimidate congressmen and senators.

    By C Tony on Apr 11, 2020

  53. Hebrew Mark you’re obsessed with the feds . I think they have better things to do right now with all that’s going on in this pandemic world that worry about what people say on a bootleg music blog .

    By HHH on Apr 11, 2020

  54. That’s a ridiculous as people sueing the band The Who following their chaotic Cincinatti 79 concert in which people were trampled to death .

    By HHH on Apr 11, 2020

  55. Like the band was somehow responsible.

    By HHH on Apr 11, 2020

  56. HHH- Lick my stanky ass you fag I just took a dump. Your schlong’s too small to satisfy me I’m gonna fuck tha neighbor when I’m done with u.

    By HHH's Fat Black Wife on Apr 11, 2020

  57. You are one disgusting piece of garbage. You need to be hogtied over a spit and then roast your fat black wife heffer

    By David Duke on Apr 11, 2020

  58. This is a great site, but the comment section needs to be permanently closed. Consider each download or stream a “thank you” or positive comment and leave it at that. The comments probably come from the same five basement dwellers, but it’s the most vile stuff on the internet. It’s nauseating. If they can’t be blocked, the whole comment section should go. At the very least, set up an admin to delete the swill.
