Home taping is killing record industry profits!

|

In September of 1981, Dead Kennedys released the 8-song EP, In God We Trust. It contained the single, "Nazi Punks Fuck Off". On the original version on tape, Side A contained all 8 songs, with Side B being left intentionally blank. Printed on Side B was the explanation, "Home taping is killing record industry profits! We left this side blank so you can help"

I never saw this one before but Billy Bragg's 1st album, Life's a riot with Spy vs Spy, had the b-side left blank with instructions to 'Bootleg the Bragg, confuse the enemy'.
