Hard to believe it's almost 25 years since this was released...



I've been listening to this album a lot in the past couple of months, and it's an amazing work.

Interesting lyrics off the same album, from the track "Spreading the Disease":


Politicians say no to drugs
While we pay for wars in South America
Fighting fire with empty words
While the banks get fat

And the poor stay poor
And the rich get rich
And the cops get paid to look away
As the one percent rules America


Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see
The way society
Keeps spreading the disease


The reference to the one percent is a lot more common these days, hey?

Don't know how to post videos but Hangar 18 by Megadeth and Ohio by CSNY come to mind.

Was listening to this album earlier this evening ... it's damn near 'prophetic' in ways, almost.

My contribution would have to be Working Class Hero - John Lennon.
It was released the year I was born, 1971...almost 42 year's ago!
