Underground Album (D.A.C., 1982)

Underground Album was American outlaw country musician David Allan Coe’s 21st studio album. The album was released as a mail order album, which was sold through the back pages of the motorcycle magazine, Easyriders or through the concession stands at his shows.

Underground Album was the follow-up to Nothing Sacred (1978). It contains profane, sexually explicit lyrics and resulted in Coe being labeled a racist for one particular song. In fact, journalist Neil Strauss labeled Underground Album’s material as “among the most racist, misogynist, homophobic and obscene songs recorded by a popular songwriter.”

Nothing Sacred was Coe’s 11th album and also contained profane, sexually explicit songs. It was also sold through mail order in motorcycle magazines.
