Comments: Exile on Neocon Street

I'd say that these lyrics--which can be heard every 15 minutes on some radio station out here--are pretty anti-Bush:

"Sieg Heil to the president gasman
Bombs away is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel towers
Who criticize your government"

Yeah, Jeremy, that song is anti-Bush and I think Armstrong even has said so.

I am right of center and still think Green Day kicks ass, and I still haven't thrown out my Bruce Springsteen cd's (although I don't know if I can handle going to another preachy concert of his - wow what a great show other than that).

Agree with Steve that politics should be ignored i choosing a musical act if they take politics out of their act in NFL related venues. So long as the Stones stick to playing uncontroversial songs with lyrics like "what the matta wich you boy, them puerto rican girls are just dyin to meet ya" and "brown sugar" we'll be just fine.

Maybe next year the NFL can balance it out with Toby Keith (good god, is he the only singer who doesn't hate America).
