We can’t speak of the ‘fuck’ shortage in the music around us, as there are about 50,000 related hits in Discogs. Although the word itself is not enough for rebellion, the artists feel often tempted to see ‘fuck’ as a way to self-expression, which has led to a number of tracks balancing between the good and the bad taste, more the latter.
Obviously, ballads are not the genre where we should look around while music breeds like punk and hardcore or ghetto and booty bass provide a lot of thematic material. The following selection represents mostly artists and labels I can recall from earlier days. Something you should not show to your (future) mother-in-law,
Mark Forshaw – The Fuck (Berceuse Heroique)
Let’s start with the present day: Out on maverick label Berceuse Heroique this summer, “The Fuck” is the actual inspiration for the list. Check also Jamal Moss remix on the flip.
Biochip C. – Fucking Evil (Force Inc. Music Works)
Hellraiser vibes from a breakbeat & hardcore champion over 20 years ago.

Karen Finley – Tales Of Taboo (Pow Wow Art International)
