Cobo Award for the most hateful soca song ever written

Music from a house fete filled the neighborhood recently.   To my horror a most disgusting song came on, it's hateful lyrics blasted across to my house making me angry.  What is the song? Why the anger?  The song was  "Kicke Een she back door" by Burning Flames. The lyrics essentially say, if a woman does not let you in her house, use violence to break down her back door.  This is a horrible poorly disguised euphemism for a violent physical act against a woman who does not want to partake in a sexual act.  

Really? Is this what our music has come to?  In a time where more and more women are facing physical violence and there are horrific news about women being raped every other day - this is what what is considered acceptable?  

 While the song was being played at the house fete, it was stopped mid-song and then after a pause it was replaced with a different song.  The party throwers had the sense to stop playing something so disgusting.  I sincerely hope more dj's have the sense to do the same.  

Here is a sample of the revolting lyrics:

"I doh relly know bout you, but I know just what to do, when a woman pad down she house, make up her mind to keep you out...Kick een she back door...Broke im een...And she bawling murder, Kick em een, Murder, Murder..."
