Let's stay with the murder theme, shall we? (Come to think of it, you could even argue the Coulter theme as well.)
Put on your black hoodie and your White Sox cap or knit hat, and set the Way-Back Machine for 1991.
From one of my favorite records of the 90s and damn sure one of the best hip-hop debuts ever: Cypress Hill's How I Could Just Kill a Man.
(By the way, it was a sign of how daring and dangerous hip-hop was at the time -- and how willing it was to stoke that image and recognize its roots in all different kinds of underground music that Cypress Hill gave a shout-out in this song to one of L.A. punk's most legendary bands. Props to anyone who can tell me to which band -- and specifically which song -- I'm referring.)
