Rev.Albert:
I like this one: Slade Alive - Get Down and Get With It

Rev.Cambeul:
A tribute to the Sons of the South by a bald headed Aussie - not me.

Rose Tattoo - Fighting Sons

Rev.Cambeul:
In The Flesh

(album: Roger Waters, movie: Bob Geldof)

So ya, thought ya
Might like to go to the show.
To feel that warm thrill of confusion,
That space cadet glow.
I've got some bad news for you sunshine,
Pink isn't well, he stayed back at the hotel
And they sent us along as a surrogate band
We're gonna find out where you fans really stand.
Are there any queers in the theater tonight?
Get them up against the wall!
Get them all!
There's one in the spotlight, he don't look right to me,
Get him up against the wall!
Get them all!
That one looks Jewish!
And that one's a coon!
Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?
There's one smoking a joint,
And another with spots!
If I had my way,
I'd have all of you shot!



Run Like Hell

(David Gilmour)
Run. Run. Run. Run.
(Roger Waters)
You better make your face up in
Your favorite disguise.
With your button down lips and your
Roller blind eyes.
With your empty smile and your hungry heart.
Feel the bile rising from your guilty past.
With your nerves in tatters
As the cockleshell shatters
And the hammers batter down the door.
You better run.
You better run all day and run all night.
And keep your dirty feelings deep inside.
And if you're taking your girlfriend out tonight
You better park the car well out of sight.
Cause if they catch you in the back seat
Trying to pick her locks,
They're gonna send you back to mother
In a cardboard box.
You better run.

Rev.WillWilliams:
I always liked Pink Floyd but never paid much attention to their lyrics, except to a couple where the words were memorably audible, like "Hey, TEACHER, leave those kids alone!

That movie was excellent. I bet it's an anthem for the Hammerskin Nation, crossed hammers and all. That cartoon of the marching hammers at the end is cool. What's not cool is that it takes a Jew like Bob Geldof to make that movie, even with this line about his kinsmen in it.

Creators can do better.

Yes you do. That was a double negative (a grammatically substandard but emphatic negative).

A double negative is two (or more) negatives used for emphasis, eg, "We don't need no education" as opposed to "We don't need any education" Prescriptivist grammarians recommend avoiding double negatives in formal writing, but historians note this rule is of fairly recent manufacture in English history. By today's standards, Shakespeare was notorious for his use of the double negative.
