Swedish Furious Garage Punk!

Supershitty To The Max! is the first album by the Swedish Garage Punkers called The Hellacopters. This is a real furious album, a bit in the vein of The Stooges and MC5. One of my favourites is Born Broke, this has has a awesome riff that rings out through the whole song. After this album The Hellacopters made several albums, but after the third album Grande Rock they sounded more commercial. And that's a pity.
I want to ask if someone could upload Payin' The Dues and Grande Rock, so I can post them here (Cause my records are too damaged. Thank you in advance!)

The Hellacopters were originally a side project for Nicke Andersson (drummer with Swedish death metal gods Entombed) and Dregen (guitarist for fellow scandinavian rockers the Backyard Babies). Their mission was to bring the blinding speed and distortion of Motörhead (with a little punk sensibility thrown in for good measure) to the '90s, and this they did with Supershitty to the Max! Opener "(Gotta Get Some Action) Now!" is simply brilliant, roaring like a Harley down the highway, shredding eardrums along the way. Though the pace abates somewhat three songs in, the distortion is on 11 throughout the record, yielding other gems such as "Fire Fire Fire" and "Tab." And the band prove they're hardcore by putting a bonus track on the vinyl edition rather than the CD.
