about

This song is about getting caught up in the White Night riots, which were a reaction to the Dan White verdict and sentencing. Dan White was a City Council member who killed our wonderful Mayor Moscone and the pioneering activist City Council Member, Harvey Milk.The sentence was very light and the City was enraged.

lyrics

White Night
Caught up
in an accidental
act of activism
in the white night.

Mayor Murdered
Counsel member
Milk murdered
Was the headline

Hot Toddies
Days on Market
Heard the verdict
And it wasn’t right
Twisted twinkie defense
Light sentence
For Dan White

Chorus
Mad as hell not gonna take it any more
Mad as hell not gonna take it any more

Peaceful protest
in the Castro
Rolled downtown
Blew up like dynamite

Headed south
Windows Broken
Shops looted
Like a hand in a bee hive

Chased up Market
side Streets, swarm of bees
we ran for our lives)

At the plaza
Cop cars smoldered
Like charcoal
In the white night

Mad as hell not gonna take it any more
Mad as hell not gonna take it any more

Caught up
in an accidental
act of activism
in the white night.

Mayor Murdered
Counsel member
Milk murdered
Was the headline
