Okay, I'm going to be a bit of a hypocrite here... I really don't want to know the politics of any famous actor/singer. I'd rather not have political rants in every song, movie and TV show I put on. This IS NOT 1971. This IS NOT Vietnam. When I want politics I'll seek it out...
BUT, that being said, given the fact that so many celebrities and musicians have decided to throw their (mostly) uneducated opinions into the mix it makes it a welcome change when someone sings to the silent majority...
Enter the newest Megadeth CD... United Abominations
Some of the lyrics:
All that they envisioned
of what things would come to be
Turned into a pink mist
When they blew to smithereens
We are just a war away from Amerikhastan
With god vs. god, the undoing of man..."
Disengage their minds, sabotage their health
Promote sex, and war, and violence in the kindergartens
Blame the parents and teachers; it’s their fault, “Annuit Coeptis”
Attack the church dynamic, attack the family
Keep the public undisciplined till nothing left is sacred and
The “have-nots” get hooked and have to go to the “haves” just to cop a fix..."
-Washington is Next
"NATO invaded Yugoslavia to end ethnic cleansing, there was no UN
The US invaded Afghanistan after 9/11, there was no UN
Saddam Hussein violated 17 UN resolutions; The UN was asked to join the war in Iraq. The US invaded, Ha! there was no UN
Libya bombed a discotheque in Berlin killing Americans, there was no UN
Iran funds any terrorist organization it can, and attacked the US in the seventies, there was no stinking UN
Facing War without end, looking into the future, there was no more UN.."
So yeah, it's a slow news day and any fans of "Peace Sells" will probably dig this CD...
