Bud Tristano supports our First Amendment rights to free expression, and has prepared this statement:
I refuse to apologize for any lyrics on any record that anyone may find offensive.
If you want to believe that the artists you listen to have all lived perfect lives and have never hurt anyone's feelings, then you are probably in a cult.

"Music is your only friend, until the end"
- Jim Morrison
