Radio KBwD is on the air

OK. Time for a little sacrilege. That Lee Greenwood song of which he's made an entire career singing at rallies and ball games? Tired of it.

And with all due respect to Yankee fans and 7th inning stretches everywhere, "God Bless America" just doesn't do it for us anymore.

And our National Anthem? The tune is that of a British drinking song. Obviously, not that there is anything wrong with that but if it takes bad teeth and being half in the bag to make a song sound good, we think we can do a whole lot better. Go ahead: stack it up against Ray Charles' "God Bless America" and give us a goose-bump count for each song.

With all that said, we want to introduce a song that can perhaps be worked into the mix at our rallies in addition to the above (Gaia forbid, don't want to cast aside any of those time-honored gems) as it's a bit more topical and relevant to this point in time.

Ladies and Gentlemen, via W.C. Varones, a rather disillusioned Neil Young performing "Fork in the Road"

(Mild NSFWoH warning)

Exit question: You do realize we're going to hell for this post, don't you?

I've loved this song from the moment it came out, though it's an odd one. The music is simple and some of the lyrics are really amateurish, but intentionally so, I think. It's the raw, blue-collar, working man's song of trying to get by.

I got hope. But you can't eat hope.

I could listen to Neil Young all year long.

Ok, I like, but for my Tea Party protesting inspiration, I am still stuck on Muse's "Uprising" as used in Sarah's video montage.

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
