In God We Trust, Inc. is a hardcore punk EP by the Dead Kennedys. The thrashing, lightning-fast beats and shouted (often jumbled) vocals, on the first six tracks, resembles Washington, D.C.'s punk bands of the time; more than on any other Dead Kennedys release, the music here is conventionally "hardcore." The album spends the first two tracks attacking organized religion before going on to attack such diverse topics as Neo Nazis, President Ronald Reagan, the pesticide Kepone, and the kind of governmental indifference that vastly worsened the effects of catastrophes like the Minamata disease. "We've Got a Bigger Problem Now" is a lounge jazz remake of "California Über Alles" from the previous album with Ronald Reagan instated in place of Jerry Brown. The EP also includes a cover of the theme song from the 1960s show, Rawhide. The album cover depicts a golden Jesus crucified on a cross of dollar bills, with a background of a shiny metal material.
