As November 2 approaches, it seems as though the looming election has infiltrated all parts of life as we know it. Music is most certainly not an exception. Here are some examples of partisanly political songs that could get any donkey or elephant to shake their respective booties.
Those leaning to the left might listen to…
1. Rage Against the Machine, “The Battle of Los Angeles”
“Orwell’s hell a terror era coming through/ But this little brother’s watching you too”
2.Ani DiFranco, “To the Teeth”
“confused liberty with weaponry/ and watch your kids act it out”
3.Future Soundtrack for America, A compilation with artists like Ben Kweller and Tom Waits
Song titles like: “Jerry Falwell destroyed the Earth”
4. Bob Marley, “Legend”
“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery/ None but ourselves can free our minds”
The president’s “right” hand men may tune into…
1. Toby Keith, “Shock’n Y’all”
“Well, Mr Bush got on the phone with Iraq and Iran and said/ Now you knuckleheads better not be doin’ business with the Taliban”
2.Ted Nugent, “Spirit of the Wild”
“Was I a-lone or in a hunter’s dream./ The buck was mine forever more!!”
3.Crush Kerry, A compilation with some Republican punk flavor
Song Titles Like: “Propaganda Puppets”
4.Alan Jackson, “Drive”
“Did you burst out with pride for the red, white and blue”
Happy Listening and remember to vote!
