A noisy protest against the recent, well-publicized firing of over 6,000 workers from the Sunbeam Corporation. Combining the optimism of gospel with the angst of a union ballad, the song unites its listeners in the realization that as powerful mega-monopolies grow, mere men and women fall.
A guitar-driven, multi-layered call-and-response to the increasingly stunning sameness of today's alternative music, undermining its origins as an essential, open-minded evolution of the rock scene.
An abbreviated, stripped-down version of the original mix.
This final cut scraps the original mix's spare, baby grand arrangements in favor of crosscut beats and open-wounded anger. While the lyrics remain the same, the message is far more deliberate, with a quilt of media-saturated samples washing over the chopping rhythms and phoned-in vocals.
