Mojo Nixon and Jello Biafra ~ Hamlet Chicken Plant Disaster

On September 3rd 1991 a fire broke out at a Chicken Processing Plant in Hamlet North Carolina. The owner had had all the emergency doors of the plant locked and barred to save a few dollars. 25 workers burned alive, and 49 were injured. The owner responsible for these deaths served less than 4 years in prison.

Mojo Nixon and Jello Biafra wrote this song about it, which is found on the Prairie Home Invasion Album.
