Kevin Michael " GG " Allin born Jesus Christ Allin ; August 29, — June 28, was an American punk rock musician and songwriter who performed and recorded with many groups during his career. Known more for his notorious stage antics than for his music, Allin recorded prolifically, not only in the punk rock genre, but also in spoken word , country , and more traditional-style rock. His lyrics, which often expressed themes of violence and misanthropy ,  polarized listeners and created varied opinions of him within the highly politicized punk community. Allin's music was often poorly recorded and produced, given limited distribution, and met with mostly negative reviews from critics,    although he maintained a cult following throughout and after his career. Allin promised for several years that he would commit suicide on stage during one of his concerts, but instead died from an accidental drug overdose on June 28, , at the age of October 20, — June 23, and Arleta Gunther August 17, — August 7,   He was given this name because his father told his wife that Jesus Christ had visited him, and told him that his newborn son would be a great man in the vein of the Messiah. Allin's family lived in a log cabin with no running water or electricity in Groveton, New Hampshire.
Where people listen
Music has it's extremes. One the one hand it has Taylor Swift constructed niceness and pastel colours and then there's the dark underbelly of pain. It's been almost twenty-five years since he died, but he is still one of the most hated and villified "punk stars" of all time, he makes Marilyn Manson and Ozzie Osborne look like choir boys.
Nothing is as punk rock as your body. No swear word, political symbol, or fashion choice could outrage the general public as much as the fluids and waxes that your hideous beef shell oozes out on a daily basis. That GG lived so hard, behaved so repulsively, bled so profusely, and died so young will forever cement him as the most offensive man in punk. He got down on his knees, sucked it up, and spit it onto the crowd. I was behind Jello Biafra, so I grabbed onto him and used him as a human shield to guard myself from this. I would say at least half of the crowd left right then.
