System of a Down — B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Bombs)
March 28, 2008
It’s Friday Protest Song time again. My wife is about to kill me at this point, because I have been playing David Rovics album “The Commons” constantly for the past week. She doesn’t mind protest songs, but she doesn’t like folk music that much. She’s a much bigger heavy metal fan. Here is a heavy metal protest song. I do like this song, especially the chorus of “Why don’t presidents fight the war? Why do they always send the poor?” Makes me think of the “Draft the Bush Twins” pseudo-movement on-line a few years back. If you look at the (very few) members of congress that have children in Iraq, you see people who are ready for this insanity to be over. Here’s System of a Down, dedicated to my loving wife.
