Weekend Playlist: Government Shutdown Edition

By Jon Graef in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 6, 2013 7:30PM

Six days into the government shutdown, and its effects are myriad. Employees are furloughed, the EPA is out-of-commission, and, meanwhile, the people responsible for shutting down the government are still being paid while others affected by their actions are struggling paycheck to paycheck.

It's enough to make you wanna holler. So holler, to our collection of anti-government/protest songs in a wide range of genres and from a wide range of decades. Even something as sophomoric as "the government totally sucks, you motherfucker" may prove cathartic. So dig in, and raise your fist to the sky in protest.
