FEATURE: The Savior of Rock 'n' Roll: GG Allin

The boundary lines between what is and is not "art" are always up for debate, but things quickly take on a more excitable tone when you add to the debate a healthy dose of bad taste, anything that steps beyond societal norms. GG Allin, god rest his disgusting soul, was the walking embodiment of bad taste, a pissing, shitting mess of a human being who walked the line between artist and criminal. Looking back on the man's tumultuous life for the Network Awesome magazine, I can't say I came to many hard and fast answers about art or about Allin himself, but it's a strange, messianic tale that is worth telling regardless.
