EXPLAIN THE NAME
The name Sad Society was inspired by a headline in the Edinburgh Evening News many years ago, which read "We are living in a sad society". Since Sad Society’s songs are about the realities of life in this horrible world of forced-conformity, violence, greed and hatred which grinds people down. The headline struck a chord; we are living in a sad society!
