AllMusic Review by

Have a look at those song titles: "Science Sucks," "Sweatpants Boner," "I'm High, So What," "I'm a Creep." Know that the key track, "I H8 U Motherfuckers," features a sample of a G.G. Allin interview over the chanted album title. Those two pieces of information alone would make the average listener dismiss Life Sucks Trash Fuck as dumb fake-outrage punk. That would be a mistake, however, because this album is really really GOOD dumb fake-outrage punk. Seattle's Trashies owe less to Allin than they do to goofier, more genial slobs like the Dead Milkmen and the Queers: there's a sense of stupid fun to these songs that elevates them beyond the juvenile lyrics. Quality use of a vintage synth and authentically cruddy production values add to the good trashy time. Not creatively significant in the least, this album is a snotty punk blast.
