Illegitimi non carborundum is a mock-Latin aphorism, often translated as 'Don't let the bastards grind you down'. The phrase itself has no meaning in Latin and can only be mock-translated as a Latin-English pun. The phrase originated during World War II. Lexicographer Eric Partridge attributes it to British army intelligence very early in the war (using the ablative plural illegitimis).

The album was the first Toasters release on Megalith Records and it was released 5 years after Don't Let the Bastards Grind You Down, due to the demise of ska label Moon Ska and, also, the decrease of third wave ska's mainstream popularity that saw the disappearance of a lot of ska bands some years before. The Star's official motto, "Illegitimi non carborundum", is a mock-Latin aphorism meaning "Don't let the bastards grind you down".

Don't Let The Bastards G. .has been added to your Cart. I picked this album up in early '98 towards the end of the third wave of ska run. This album along with Hard Band For Dead symbolize all that waa great about ska in the late 90's. I recommend that you pick up this CD and take a close listen to "Today's a good day". The best song on the album.
