55. Yep, that's why the 'Maniacs dropped the song off "In My Tribe"
Edited on Tue Sep-21-04 09:42 PM by jdjkkse
"In My Tribe also included 10,000 Maniacs' first recorded cover, Cat Stevens' Peace Train. (After Stevens endorsed the Ayatollah Khomeini's "death sentence" against novelist Salman Rushdie, Merchant said the band would no longer perform Peace Train. "I wish we could take it off the album", she says.)
