This article is about the lyrical reference "Hostile, Massachussetts", for the similarly titled track please see Hostile, Mass.

Not a real place name, presumably this is a reference to the brutality in Boston or Lynn, and the earlier line "Hostile Massachussetts". Massachusetts is a hostile place, so "Hostile, Massachussetts" is a generic Massachusetts town. It has a car park.

from Hostile, Mass., Sweet Payne, and Separate Vacations.
