So this is my "stealth-rebellion" mix, filled with protest-y type songs that I can play at work without annoying people too, too much. If the music is too loud or otherwise they start whining and I have to change things. I wanted to include some tracks that weren't as much part of the typical anti-war protest songbook hence the Dead Milkmen, The Bukowski Poems, Southern Culture, The Patti Smith cover of Prince, etc. I know the Creedence and the Hendrix songs are already "overused" and I ran a little heavy on the Clash songs, but I wanted to strike a balance for the folks at work who have never even heard a Clash song before (the horror!) and who also consider Bob Dylan's Blowing in the Wind the beginning and end of all protest rock. Arf. If anyone has a good french-fry picture that also is on the protesty side let me know as I'm looking for cover-art. One last thing, like the Dixie Chicks (whom I'm having an ever-increasing amount of respect for) I too am embarrassed that Georgie W. is from Texas (or at least squatted there).

Nice. Is "Fortunate Son" really overused? I don't think so....

"Frenched"? I thought it was just French. At least, that's what it says on every menu ever. Anyway, good songs.

brilliant title, excellent cover, and, most important of all, great mix. 'the genius of the crowd' is my favorite bukowski poem.
