Say It Loud
Campaign songs. Theyre important.
But Bush and Kerry are going about it all wrong:
U2? God Bless America? Sheesh.
Dominic Sirianni, bassist for the Remnants, offers some alternatives:
For Bush, I would say that GG Allin is the most representative performer for him as a person and his campaign. The two songs that leap to mind are Bite It You Scum and Dog Shit. The latter features a lyric that goes something like, Dog shit, dog shit/Shit straight out of a fucking dogs asshole. [This] works for his supporters, who cant grasp innuendo or nuance.
For Kerry, Devo has a song called Mongoloid, which tells the story of a below-average man who still manages to bring home the bacon. I pick this because Kerry appears to me as semiretarded but still able to bring home some of the policy bacon that I desire. For the election in general, though, my theme song is either Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue or Chinese Rocks. This campaign makes me want to inject copious quantities of heroin to kill the pain while dulling my cognitive abilities with powerful inhalants. Audra Schroeder
