Stormtroopers of Death

Stormtroopers of Death


Stormtroopers of Death, more commonly known as S.O.D., formed in New York in 1985. They are commonly credited as being among the first bands to fuse hardcore punk with thrash metal into a style sometimes called "crossover thrash". They have also been a subject of controversy due to their politically-incorrect lyrics, in particular a track named "Speak English or Die". The British band Concrete Sox responded to the aforementioned song with a parody entitled "Speak Siberian or Die." Another British band, Lawnmower Deth, wrote a song about Billy Milano entitled "F.A.T. (Fascist and Tubby)". Not all found them offensive, however; in 2000, the Japanese band Yellow Machinegun recorded their own version of "Speak English or Die" on a tribute album titled "Speak Japanese or Die". Finally, S.O.D. member Dan Lilker has stated: "The lyrics were never intended to be serious, just to piss people off.
