Well, ironically, when I was in prison, I remember talking to a man about the Americana album. He says supposably it is a story of Dexters life, the album in its entirety. Supposably he robbed a bunch of electronics and ended up doing 4 months in prison, which is where they made him cut his hair the first time, (remember back in the day he had the long dredlocks)

I was wondering if this is true, or what. He said each song has a meaning based to an event that occured in the songwriters life, like his girlfriend dumped him, he went crazy, started stealing electronics, went to prison for 4 months, wrote a bunch of songs when he was in there.

Well it would explain the song walla walla...and that first song in the beginning says something like "cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay" (have you ever)

walla walla was commentary on the society in america. a great portion of it wasn't necessarily something that happened to dexter.

and the line "the truth about the world is that crime does pay"... obviously he doesn't really think that crime pays for him- he's speaking negatively about the US and kind saying "it's a shame that's so".

and what about the song "When you're in prison", it's not in Americana but it would make sense if he'd have written it once he got through it.

If Dexter was in prison around 1995-96, it would have been big news.

I'm pretty sure that if Dexter Holland was in prison, he would be doing the raping instead of picking up the soap. When You're in Prison is merely a warning to inmates to stay away from Dexter if he ever goes to prison.
