Besides the fact that "Depression" is our favorite Black Flag number, we've had some very real bouts with the condition ourselves. And while we're not gonna get all up into a Lorraine Bracco-style plea about it, as the mighty Strummer once exhorted, this is a public service announcement with guitars. A bit in the Charlotte Observer illustrates that fast driving, among other things, is often a symptom of depression among males. We'd also like to point out that entirely forgetting how to drive is another. Cue the opening chords to "Nervous Breakdown" and pass the ammunition. Or better yet, the Operation Ivy records.
