    He also did "Battle of New Orleans". My parents had an album called Johnny Horton On Stage if I remember the title correctly. Enjoyed listening to those songs.

    I just noticed a Star Wars connection to "War Pigs". If you move the letter p, you get Warp IGs. That could be IG series droids travelling in hyperspace.

    of course there are a couple of war songs by slayer: war ensemble and *clears throat* cheeeeeemmical warrrrrrrrfaiiiiiiiirrre. as tom would say. er shriek.

    This is not a Caesar impersonation.

    Has anyone else heard Neil Young's new album, Living With War? That's got to be the most brutal musical assault on Bush and the Iraq War yet.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I don't like Neil Young. Not because he's anti-Bush, because he's anti-my auditory pleasure. That guy's voice annoys me more and more over the years.

    There are several Neil Young songs that I really like, but a lot of it I don't really care for. I have Decade, a 2-CD best of that goes through about 1977 I think. My favorites on there would be "Mr. Soul" (A Buffalo Springfield song), "Cinnamon Girl", "Down By The River", "Southern Man", "Ohio" (with Crosby, Stills & Nash), "Old Man", "Heart Of Gold", and "The Needle And The Damage Done". I've only listened to the whole thing once or twice, so I couldn't tell you what many of the other songs even sound like.

    I've not heard his new album, but if it is just a Bush bashing, I can probably pass on that one. I can still enjoy a song if it is from the other side of the political spectrum from me. Heck, Neil's "Rockin' in the Free World" had some subtle digs at the elder George Bush with the "1000 points of light" and "kinder, gentler machine gun hand" lines. That's a great song. Stuff like that is a bit more clever than "Let's Impeach The President".

    How could you not like a guy that wears a hat that says "take this job and shove it??????????????????????????????"

    I, also, don't like Neil Young so I'll probably never hear those songs.

    For those that like their music a little more hard-edged check out Ministry's new album Rio Grande Blood.

    The album is totally anti-Bush and the war in Iraq.
    Personally, though, I think the songs could be anti-vegetarianism and this album would still kick major butt.

    Al Jourgensen is a genius!

    What do you think of J Mascis' voice? The first time I heard Dinosaur Jr, I thought it sounded a bit like a Neil Young tape being eaten up by the tape deck. I actually kind of like it though. He's made some good music. Don't know if he's done any war/protest songs though.

    How about that song "Bombs Below" by Living Things? I kind of like that song. I was just looking up the lyrics and it appears to be commenting on the war. It has the lines "we're gonna win the war / that's what you kids are for / we salute you / where do all the dead boys go / no solutions just bombs below."
