By no means a new video here, but in my opinion, one hell of a classic well worth revisiting. I remember first seeing this pop up on Headbangers ball back in '89 and taping it to watch it over and over and over again. Back in '89 when my friends and I weren't at shows doing our stage dives, we'd all hang out at my parent's house, put on videos like this and dive like idiots on top of each other on the sofa. From that point on "Injustice System" easily became one of my favorite Sick Of It All songs. Those early '89 era Sick Of It All shows at City Gardens were just incredible, the band had and energy level that was almost unmatched and the crowd ate it up. Sick Of It All definitely raised the bar high for how a band's stage presence should be. At one point I'm sure I had done more stage dives during Sick Of It All sets than any other band of the time.
And for good measures, a little Sick Of It All footage from the Superbowl of Hardcore at the new Ritz in NYC, January 1991 off the In-Effect video. Now go G.I. Joe Headstomp through your Friday and into the weekend. -Tim DCXX
