About This Political Rally In The U.K. Playing “Boho”October 5th, 2011
A furious tirade launched against the Conservatives by rock band Primal Scream appears to have been sparked by confusion between two similar riffs.
The group issued an angry statement railing against the use of their music amid reports on Twitter that Home Secretary Theresa May left the stage to the strains of 1994 top ten hit Rocks.
Not only were the famously left-wing Scottish band upset at being associated with the “sick” party, they said, but lyrics about drug taking and prostitution hardly seemed appropriate.
However the party, which had initially appeared to confirm the song had been used, later insisted that in fact the track chosen was Bohemian Like You by the Dandy Warhols.
WTF? Where do I bitch about this? I’ll tear their fuggin heads off. Well maybe not but this happened to us in an Arkansas gubernatorial race and it makes me super angry. And then I wanna puke.
Why don’t these assholes have right-wing bands make them some right-wing music for their right-wing jerkoff politics? Oh, because right wing people aren’t creative, visionary or any fun to be around. Nor are they productive or even introspective about it. Wait, I live in Portland, Oregon….neither are left-wingers come to think of it.
Jesus, I tend to really dislike ANY people who take sides in politics. It is the single greatest contributor to getting nothing done. Fuck “politics”. What a joke. I give my charitable donations to people who get on a plane themselves and go to Haiti or Africa and help other people. Do you? NEVER to a political machine. I like to get shit done. You do too.
Fuck, now I’m pissed off.
