Community Story 6

If there is a single hardcore thing about Littleton NH it is that GG Allin's grave is located here. GG was a punk rock singer famous for the outrageous things he did at his concerts. He was the lead vocalist for a band call GG Allin and the Murder Junkies. His favorite trick was taking laxative and going to the bathroom on stage. After which he would either eat it or throw it at the audience. Charming right?

GG was born in NH to a fanatically religious family. His given name is Jesus Christ Allin. His older brother called him GG because he couldn't pronounce Jesus. His father was abusive and insane so his mom eventually got a divorce and legally changed her sons name to Kevin. But GG stuck. GG was a poor student and was bullied by other kids. It wasn't long before he began to rebel in destructive ways. GG was in jail more than
5o times.

He always threatened to commit suicide on stage. However this is not how things ended for GG. He died of a herion overdose on June 28, 1993, but in typical style he went out with a bang. He was preforming at a small vanue, the gas station, when the power went out. He proceeded to destroy the club then, followed by audience members, led a riot down the streets. He started out naked, covered in blood and feces, but put on a pair of shorts. He then went to a friend's apartment where he took the drugs that killed him. He is buried in a leather jacket and a jock strap. He had a bottle of Jim Beam resting next to him. Fans frequently decorate his grave with feces, used condom, ciggarette butts and liquor bottles.

This is footage of GG on Jerry Springer. It's long but you get an idea of his persona after just a few minutes.
