Anal Cunt was a grindcore band from Massachusetts that formed in 1988. The band is often referred to by their initials A.C. (often written as AxCx) due to the offensive nature of their name and censorship limits on some radio and publications. However, the band managed to subvert even this abbreviation by drawing these letters in a manner that was resembling an anus and a vulva. The band's early material contained no pre-written lyrics or music. Rather, the band developed an entirely improvised style which consisted of extremely loud, fast, and aggressive noise. Over time, the band shifted their style and slowly began to incorporate more riffs and pre-written lyrics into their songs. It was not until then that Anal Cunt earned the reputation for intentionally being outrageous and offensive. They were known to have common lyrical themes that include misogyny, homophobia, Nazism, antisemitism, racism, and politics. They are thought to be one of the most offensive bands in the history of metal. Which, I mean, is saying a lot.
