One more for Memorial Day - Killing Floor

Another hundred dead Iraqis and Americans on Memorial Day - a true "killing floor." Written in 1964 by Howlin' Wolf, Killing Floor may (or may not) have been intended as a song about draft resistance, but the use of the Lyndon Johnson quote at the beginning of this 1968 version by the short-lived group The Electric Flag (from their "A Long Time Comin'" album) made it into one in most people's minds (mine, anyway). Have a listen.
