Minutemen


Una canzone contro la quotidiana "guerra" del lavoro... ce ne libereremo mai?

Molto divertente il clip: i tre Minutemen suonano sullo sfondo desolante di una fabbrica abbandonata e vengono bombardati da Ronald Reagan in persona, in un film risalente all'epoca della sua carriera hollywoodiana, a bordo di uno Spitfire della seconda guerra mondiale... perfetto il montaggio alternato tra performance musicale e sequenze cinematografiche, con il ghigno soddisfatto di Reagan quando sgancia la bomba eliminando l'incomodo terzetto...
Working on the edge
losing my self respect
for a man the presides over me
the principles of his creed
punch in punch out
8 hours, 5 days
sweat pain and agony
on friday I'll get paid
this ain't no picnic
hey mister don't look down on me
for what I believe
I got my bills and the rent
I should go pitch a tent
but our land is not free
so I'll work my youth away
in the place of a machine
I refuse to be a slave
this ain't no picnic.
