In Honor Of Occupy Wall Street

It’s my favorite anarcho-atheist-commie band, Chumbawamba. 

I’ve wanted to post this song for quite some time, but it only showed up on the youtube recently.  For whatever reason, youtube has been slow on the Chumbawamba uptake.  And then, I saw someone dissing the band over at Sadly, No! with a comment about how it would suck to go to one of their concerts and wait around to hear their “one hit.”  That, of course, would be Tubthumping, probably my least favorite of their entire catalog.

Seriously, if you’ve thought of these folks as one-hit wonders, go look at their catalog or pull up the post I did some time back about the limited-release Jesus H. Christ.  Compared to these guys, most rock bands are, politically speaking, Young Republicans.

    Have you heard the TMBG cover of Tubthumping?

        Hey, I like Tubthumping. But I don’t think I’d know any CW if it weren’t for you…introducing me to yet another bad influence.

    yeah, I actually have never heard anything but Tubthumping, but I’m certainly willing to give them a listen.

    I’m the guy who did two posts on Devo! It’s amazing how, in the context of a long career, they put out a single song which is a total piss-take, and it becomes a huge hit. At least they got some dough for it.

    I loved how they took money from General Motors for an advert and then gave all of it to an anti-GM group. They’re great
