Happy Labor Day, everyone.
With this being an election season, expect that much of today's best wishes and recognition to working people is going to be delivered alongside campaign slogans and false promises. So, while politicians patronize and attempt to relate to those who go out everyday and help make this big machine called America "go," maybe listen to this selection of tunes instead.
R.E.M.: "Driver 8"
John Handy: "Hard Work"
Frank Zappa : "Wind Up Workin' in a Gas Station"
Tom Waits: "I Can't Wait to Get Off Work"
Howlin' Wolf: "Work For Your Money"
Minutemen: "Working Men Are Pissed"
Replacements: "God Damn Job"
Talking Heads: "Found a Job"
Primus: "Those Damned Blue Collar Tweekers"
Black Flag: "Clocked In"
Saccharine Trust: "Mad at the Co."
Dead Kennedys: "At My Job"
Leadbelly: "John Henry"
