This is the song that goes through my head the most lately
Sonic Youth - "Youth Against Fascism" (from the album "Dirty"

(sample at http://www.alphamusic.de/0913357.html)

Another can of worms
Another stomach turns
Yeh yr ghetto burns
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

You got a stupid man
You got a Ku Klux Klan
Yr fuckin' battle plan
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

A sieg heil-in' squirt
You're an impotent jerk
Yeh a fascist twerp
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

Black robe and swill
I believe Anita Hill
Judge will rot in hell
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

Yeah a cross on fire
By a christian liar
A black attack on fire
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

Yeah the president sucks
He's a war pig fuck
His shit is out of luck
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

Another nazi attack
A skinhead is cracked
My blood is black
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

We're banging pots and pans
To make you understand
We gonna bury you man
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

I'm a human wreck
A redneck in check
I killed the teacher's pet
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate
It's the song I hate, it's the song I hate

1. mine is What's Goin' On? Marvin Gaye -Right On
Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today - Ya

Father, father
We don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what's going on
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Ah, what's going on

In the mean time
Right on, baby
Right on
Right on

Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Oh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me
So you can see
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on - Uh
Right on baby
Right on baby

2. Conscious Party - Ziggy Marley In fact the whole album is appropriate
Everyone is happy tonight
But not because of the world
And I know there'll be no fight
In such a Conscious Party

Everyone is happy tonight
But not because of the world
And I know there'll be no fight
In such a Conscious Party

No booze to lick our head
Now we can't lose in life way
No booze to lick our head
Got to stay a light in darkness
And everyone is happy tonight
But not because of the world
But not because of the world
And I know there'll be no fight
In such a Conscious Party

Spirit of Jah passes through
I can feel him, so can you! Yeah
Makes one want to get up and dance
I said we're jammin' on this love and chant
Everyone is happy tonight
But not because of the world
But it's not because of the world
And I know there'll be no fight
In such a Conscious Party

Everyone, and Jah-a-everyone

I get smiles of Happiness
Jahlification a dances
Brothers loving their sisters...
Sisters loving their brothers

Everyone is happy tonight
But not because of the world
And I know there'll be no fight
In such a Conscious Party

Everyone is happy tonight
But not because of your world
And how could there be any fight
In such a Conscious Party
Everyone is happy tonight
But not because of the world
And how could there be any fight
In such a Conscious Party?

No booze to lick our head
Now we can't lose in life way
No booze to lick our head
Got to stay a light in darkness
And everyone is happy tonight
But not because of the world
It's not because of the world
And I know there'll be no fight
In such a Conscious Party

3. We Propose - Ziggy Marley
Callin' callin' callin'
Warnin' warnin' warnin'

We propose to live up our life
We propose to do waht is right
We propose to free our people
We propose to live in Africa

This mess, yes we detest
Controlled by another hand
They're puppets, they're just some puppets
their thing's just a puppet show

So we propose all people be free
We propose equality for you and me
We propose politicans know this
We propose united (so)

You confess to your wickedness (I said)
The people already know
Protest is not enough
For the blood that flows (that's why)

We propose to be freedom fighters
We propose because we are all nighters
We propose to lick them down
We propose to free Africa

Yes, it's very serious, not delirious
The things that we say
Now let me hear the music sound
For sure we're gonna stick around

We propose...
We propose all people must be free
We propose let music be free
We propose we're gonna do what is right (whoa)

This is not a request
We propose ghetto youth live right
We propose stop fight
We propose politicnas learn this right now
We propose free Africa

'Cause we're tired of talkin'...listen to the people
Tired of balkin'...this is not a request
Tired of gamin'...listen to the people
Tired of playin'...listen to the people

We propose politicans learn, learn, learn
We propose warmongers learn, learn, learn
We propose fascists learn, learn, learn
Open your ears...listen to the people

We propose...
No one is perfect in this un-perfect world

4. Ziggy is his father's son.
See the Marley family tour if you get a chance this summer. I am really looking forward to Reggae on the Rocks at Red Rocks.

5. If yer brain's keyed to SY, you be healthy and righteous...
"Dirty" is a great album. Some hard-cores put it down for its supposed "sell-out" factor but I call bullshit on that. "Dirty" is all-'round greatness and I'll debate anyone on that score.

6. Thanks
I like EVOL and Sister best, and one of my favorite shows was at the old 9:30 Club in DC during the "Sister" Tour.
