RE: Mailbag: "Every Revolution Needs Its Anthem"

Posted by on Tue, Oct 25, 2011 at 9:32 AM

In the comments section of Grant's post from yesterday, there are a couple good suggestions (Lee: nice call on the Born Against) and also a bunch of crap that, um, might as well be Muse.

Let me help you guys out. Wire had this thing nailed down 34 years ago; "Mr. Suit" is decidedly not sophisticated, but it does get its point across in a rather concise 85 seconds.

I'm tired of being told what to think
I'm tired of being told what to do
I'm tired of fucking phonies
That's right, I'm tired of you
No, no, no, no, no, no, Mr. Suit
You can take your fucking money
and shove it up your arse
'Cause you think you understand,
but it's a fucking farce.
I'm tired of fucking phonies
That's right, I'm tired of you
And if you turn and walk out that door
And take your fucking money,
let me tell you what it's for
I'm tired of fucking phonies
That's right, I'm tired of you

This one. I choose this one.

for what it's worth, I actually like Muse too. but that doesn't mean I want them to be the soundtrack for revolution.
