Oh man...
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

A sad day for two of my favorite franchises. RIP Alex Rocco.

Oh yes, I've been hearing this since I think it was yesterday. I'd actually rewatched Itchy & Scratchy & Marge as well as The Front quite recently before this. Great character even if he was quite overlooked.
