Bad government = better music

Coming up on the November elections, what better time to release music against the empire:

Bad Religion’s Empire Strikes First

Radio 4’s Stealing of A Nation (Go listen to Radio 4’s Eyes Wide Open here to get an idea of what they sound like. Kind of the Clash meets the Gang of Four meets the Stone Roses. Like that.)

There is also Punk the Vote (warning: sound)

And lets not forget Patti Smith’s trampin’, one of the best CD’s of the year, featuring Radio Baghdad:


City of stars City of scholarship
Science City of ideas
City of light City
City of ashes That the great Caliph
Walked through His naked feet formed a circle
And they built a city A perfect city of Baghdad
In the realm of peace And all the world revolved
And they invented And they mean nothing to you
Nothing to you Nothing

Go to sleep Go to sleep my child
Go to sleep And I’ll sing you a lullaby
A lullaby for our city A lullaby of Baghdad
Go to sleep Sleep my child
Sleep Sleep…
Run Run…

You sent your lights Your bombs
You sent them down on our city Shock and awe
Like some crazy t.v. show

They’re robbing the cradle of civilization
They’re robbing the cradle of civilization
They’re robbing the cradle of civilization

Suffer not The paralysis of your neighbor
Suffer not But extend your hand
