Audio Post of the Day: Super Bird

Lyrics like "Gonna send you back to Texas, make you work on your ranch." References to the Fantastic Four. What's this, a new song about George W. Bush? No, it's 1967, the President is Lyndon Baines Johnson (of "Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?" fame), and the Fantastic Four were just comic book characters. The song is "Super Bird" by Country Joe and the Fish (of "I Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag" fame) from their album "Electric Music for the Mind and Body."

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose, it would seem. Although in truth, things haven't changed very much at all. Only the names.

Have a listen.
