"You Suffer" was largely a comedy thing, one-second song. Utterly retarded. It's ridiculous, but it was hilarious. We played that song in front of 30 local kids, like, every weekend. We played that song 30 times. It was a laugh.
Nic Bullen said that the brevity of the song was inspired by Wehrmacht's 1985 song "E!"
Zak Smith quotes the lyrics to the song, which he describes as the "shortestpunk song on the subject of suffering (or any subject)" at the conclusion of his memoir We Did Porn.
In 1989 the song appeared on one side of a 7" single given away free with copies of a compilation album entitled Grindcrusher. The song on the other side, "Mega-Armageddon Death Part 3" by the Electro Hippies, also lasts approximately one second, making the disc the shortest single ever released. Each side features one groove at the outer edge of the disc containing the music (with the rest of the surface containing etched writing and cartoons).
