Twitter-like Post: Da Hui

Back in High School I got The W’s Fourth from the Last album and one of my favorite tracks was titled “Hui”.  I thought that, like some of the other songs on the album, it was just a nonsensical song and that calling the thugs on the beach “The Hui” was just because it sounded really funny.  Well, I finally found out that the song was about a real-life gang of surfers called Da Hui.  They get a brief mention in the Local Surfers section of the Surfing article in Wikipedia.  Interestingly, The Offspring also wrote a song about “da hui”.  Well, I’ll certainly think of that song differently next time I hear it!
