Lyrics-
-=-=-=-

When cops are taken care a business I can understand
But the L.A. story's gone way out of hand.
there acts of aggression, they say, they're justified
but it seems an obsession has started from the inside

There shooting anyone who even tries to run
there shooting little kids with toy guns.
Take it to a jury, but they don't give a damn
'cause the one who tells the truth is always the policeman.

Beat all the niggers,
beat whoever you see
don't need a reason
(we're) L.A.P.D.

The city of L.A. feels like a prison.
Helicopters overhead and bullets wizzen by.
Martial law just ain't no solution
Police brutality's just social pollution

Beat all the white trash
Beat whoever you see
don't need a reason
(we're) L.A.P.D.

They say they're keeping the peace- but i'm not buyin' it
'cause a billy club ain't much of a pacifier.
'Protecting your freedom', now thats just a lie -
Its an excuse for power thats more like an alibi.

Law and order doesn't really matter
when your the one getting bruised and battered
You take it to a jury they'll throw it in your face
'cause justice in L.A. comes in a can of mace.

Beat all the niggers
Beat whoever you see
Don't need a reason
(we're) L.A.P.D......L.A.P.D

About the artist behind Lapd Tab:

The Offspring (sometimes referred to simply as Offspring) are a popular and influential[8] American punk rock band from Garden Grove, California formed in 1984. Since its inception, the band's line-up has included Dexter Holland (lead vocals, guitar), Noodles (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Greg K. (bass, backing vocals). Their current drummer is Pete Parada, formerly of Face to Face and Saves the Day, who has been with the band since 2007.

Since the release of their 1994 album Smash, which is the best-selling independent label album of all time,[9] The Offspring have achieved commercial success over five albums, with singles such as "Come Out and Play", and "Self Esteem". The band's next three albums, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana and Conspiracy of One, were also successful, reaching platinum certification and gold status respectively.[10][11] Longtime drummer Ron Welty left The Offspring in early 2003, and was replaced by Atom Willard. Later that year, the band released their next album, Splinter, to moderate sales and fairly warm reviews. In 2005, The Offspring released a greatest hits album and toured in support of the compilation. Their next album, titled Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, will be released on June 16, 2008 in Europe and a day later in the United States [12]; it can be streamed for free online, as well.[13]

To date, The Offspring have released eight studio albums, one compilation, four EPs and three DVD's[14], selling over 38 million albums worldwide[9], making them one of the best-selling punk acts of all time.[15] The band is credited, along with fellow California punk bands Green Day and Rancid, with reviving popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s.[16]
