Were Morbid Angel really the ones who came up with the phrase?

The guy from Osmose Productions, AFAIK...
By the way, I like more R/C / Roadrunner's slogan from the early nineties: "Some music was meant to stay underground", and Unsung Heroes Records' slogan: "Because there's Popular music, then there's Good music".
Just saying.

It could be a nod to the "Industrial music for industrial people" motto by Throbbing Gristle.

I believe the first time Morbid Angel themselves used the slogan was in 2003 when they started putting it on patches, but I could be wrong.

Didn't Napalm Death use that at some point too? I thiiiiink I saw it on a t-shirt Shane Embury wore on some interview clip, but I have no idea when that was filmed, nor other details.

I've always associated it with Morbid Angel at least. I don't recall ever seeing it in any other context.

It was used as the title of a tour they headlined in late 2001.

Probably the exact same as my hoodie only a t-shirt and I agree, its a classic. I have mine but have somewhat outgrown it over the years.

The irony of Roadrunner coming up with that slogan.

Man is Roadrunner the "peace/love hippie that turns into a boomer banker throwin people out of their homes" or what?

Oh yeah I wouldn’t fit mine now either. Lol. The nostalgia got me to order a new Morbid Angel shirt!

It is definitely associated with Trey nowadays... important to remember that Trey meant that as beyond extreme metal thing too, this is ofcourse made obvious by Illud.

Wasn't it printed under the tray on cds from Relapse or Nuclear Blast USA during early 90's? That's how I remember that phrase.

It was a slogan the guy from Osmose used on his printed mail catalogue back at the day upon releasing Battles In The North if I remember correctly and every info sheet he produced upon releasing a new album had that slogan.

The first time I heard something similar was The Cramps comp from 1984 called 'Bad Music for Bad People'.
Regardless of the music contents, that album cover itself was practically inescapable for punk/hardcore/thrash fans, as it was always on display in the mid 80s, sometimes in full poster form, in the cool, non-franchise record stores where you could easily find all kinds of extreme and non-mainstream records. I've never heard the album even once but that cover with its sorta Misfits vibe is permanently implanted in my head from those days, and I wouldn't be surprised if it was for other thrash fans in the mid 80s like Trey as well.

I always thought it was Earache's slogan. Pretty sure I saw it in other contexts before MA used it. I have no proof to back that up though.
