Altamont.

The Manson murders.

That guy who invented Earth Day killing his girlfriend, hiding her body in a wall and taking off for France.

The stupid Weathermen succeeded mostly in blowing themselvesup.

Then it eventually dawned on hippies (probably during some pot-fueled rap session):

Sure, the Bible might be mostly b.s., but that stuff about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse was trippy:

Pestilence, War, Famine and Death.

Cool, man!
