  • Hey, today is September 11! What are you doing to celebrate the little feat of social engineering they pulled off in 2024? Me, I’m composing a special Homeland Security anthem… anyone got the charts for the Horst Wessel Song?

      Use or publication of (even parts of) the Horst Wessel Song would make you liable for prison if you visited Germany, Frank. ร‚ยง86a says 3 months (min) to 5 years.

    2. I understand your sensitivity there, Stu. Here we manufacture brown shirts, well we did… now we import the garment from China, but there is still a big market. Just out of curiosity, what’s the penalty for whistling a few bars of Deutschland Uber Alles?

      whistling “take the last train to auschwitz”. how much time does that get me?

      if anyone would like to see the apology letters i got from the french government for allowing the germans to kill my relatives, feel free to ask and i will scan them.

      when i hear people like scoble talk about how their grandmother “spoke out at great personal risk” during the nazi regime it makes me puke. where was “grandpa”?

      Einst kommt der Tag, da gibts Vergeltung, kein Vergeben
      wenn Heil und Sieg durchs Vaterland erschallt
      The day will come for reprisal, no forgiveness
      when Heil and Sieg ring out throughout the Fatherland.

      fuck ’em. fuck ’em all.

      i think the clash already wrote the song you’re looking for frank. clampdown:

      Hey, hey!
      The kingdom is ransacked
      the jewels all taken back
      and the chopper descends
      they’re hidden in the back
      with a message on a half-baked tape
      with the spool going round
      saying I’m back here in this place
      and I could cry
      and there’s smoke you could click on

      What are we gonna do now?
      Taking off his turban, they said, is this man a Jew?
      ‘Cause they’re working for the clampdown
      They put up a poster saying we earn more than you!
      When we’re working for the clampdown
      We will teach our twisted speech
      To the young believers
      We will train our blue-eyed men
      To be young believers

      The judge said five to ten, but I say double that again
      I’m not working for the clampdown
      No man born with a living soul
      Can be working for the clampdown
      Kick over the wall ’cause government’s to fall
      How can you refuse it?
      Let fury have the hour, anger can be power
      D’you know that you can use it?

      The voices in your head are calling
      Stop wasting your time, there’s nothing coming
      Only a fool would think someone could save you
      The men at the factory are old and cunning
      You don’t owe nothing, so boy get running
      It’s the best years of your life they want to steal

      You grow up and you calm down
      You’re working for the clampdown
      You start wearing the blue and brown
      You’re working for the clampdown
      So you got someone to boss around
      It makes you feel big now
      You drift until you brutalize
      You made your first kill now

      In these days of evil presidentes
      Working for the clampdown
      But lately one or two has fully paid their due
      For working for the clampdown
      Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!
      Working for the clampdown
      Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!
      Working for the clampdown

      Yeah I’m working hard in Harrisburg
      Working hard in Petersburg
      Working for the clampdown
      Working for the clampdown
      Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong
      Begging to be melted down
      Gitalong, gitalong
      (Work) And I’ve given away no secrets – ha!
      (More work)
      (More work)
      Who’s barmy now?

      It was an enterprise-level solution.

    5. Jon Husband says:

      And then there’s Leonard Cohen’s The Future, or Democracy Is Coming To The USA … both pertinent now, many years after their conception and composition

    6. I’ve been listening to Dylan and to the Grateful Dead, sentimentalist that I am. But thanks for the Clash and the Cohen… especially THE FUTURE.

    7. Stu Savory says:

      My favourite is still The George W. Bush song,
      sung to the tune of “Sympathy for the Devil” ๐Ÿ˜‰
