Ack Ack Ack Ack

[1979]
7” EP “Another EP”

The song is a very basic anti-war punk song; the title comes from imitating the sound of a machine gun ("Johnny got his gun, ack ack ack ack...").
Influential American punk/alternative trio Minutemen frequently covered "Ack Ack Ack" in their live shows. Live recordings of different versions of the Minutemen's cover can be heard on the albums The Politics of Time and Ballot Result and the 7" EP Tour-Spiel, and a studio recording appears on the Minutemen's final studio album 3-Way Tie (For Last).
The Urinals' bassist John Talley-Jones directed a Three Stooges-inspired video for the Minutemen's studio version of "Ack Ack Ack" in September 1985; it would be the Minutemen's last video. The video is included as one of the DVD bonus features of We Jam Econo, a full-length Minutemen documentary. (en.wikipedia)
