Lyrics:
Yeah!

I'm from south Philadelphia
I'm from Avenue C
I've seen the empty eyes of a vacant breed
I'm from the Valley too

[Chorus]
I Don't Care About You
Fuck you!
I Don't Care About You
Fuck you!

I seen Hollywood Boulevard
Wellfair hotel
And I spent the night in jail
At the Wilkins Hotel

[Chorus]

I seen an old man have a heart attack in Manhattan
Well, he died while we just stood their looking at him
Ain't he killed

[Chorus]

I seen men rolling drugs
I seen bodies in the streets
I saw a man who was sleeping in his own puke
And a man with no legs crawl down 5th street
Trying to God to get something to eat

[Chorus]

Fuck you!

[Spoken]
Uh, that hurt man
Alright
Perfect


Quote:
That song happens to be a sentiment that I appreciated for as long as I can remember. In our junkie days, me and a friend of mine, Danny Biral, used to cruise around town in this huge green Oldsmobile and try to cop. We listened to the Fear cassette because that's all we had. That song turned into an anthem for us. When the band was talking about punk songs, I was adamant about doing that one [Gill (1994) Punk Days Revisited: Slash Returns To His Roots, Guitar Player - Jan, 1994].

"Buick Makane", "Hair Of The Dog", and "I Don't Care About You" were my ideas.[Guitar Player, January 1994]
