Conservative Rocker David Bowie

By now...you might've heard that the National Review (a turbo conservative rag) has compiled a list of "conservative" rock songs.

Ha!

National Review's "50 Greatest Conservative Rock Songs


Quick info:
...to prove there is still some music for conservative rockers, National Review has published a list of the 50 greatest conservative rock songs.

John J. Miller, who compiled the list, explains the criteria: "The lyrics must convey a conservative idea or sentiment, such as skepticism of government or support for traditional values. And, to be sure, it must be a great rock song."

At the top of the list is the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again," which Miller calls a theme song for "disillusioned revolutionaries" who've forsaken their naive idealism. Also in the top 10 are "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by the Beach Boys (for its pro-abstinence and -marriage message), "Gloria" by U2 and "Revolution" by the Beatles.

Other selections include songs by Bob Dylan ("Neighborhood Bully"), David Bowie ("Heroes") and John Mellencamp ("Small Town").
I can't even type because I'm laughing so hard.

"Heroes?"

"Heroes?"

"Heroes?!"

Hello, McFly? Hello, McFly?! McFly!

I mean, where do I....you know...I mean...maybe it's a song for...you know...some of the closeted gay Republicans on Capitol Hill.

And "Revolution?!"

My God.

WHAT FUCKING WORDS ARE YOU PEOPLE HEARING?

Again, I'm crazy busy at work, but I feel like spending the next week breaking down this RETARDED list.

(Quickly - I remember a dude leaving an anti-Bruce post on the Springteen Message Boards (Backsteets.com) right before the start of '04's "Vote For Change" tour. He felt betrayed because, you know, Bruce had always "fought for the little guy," and there he was on a liberal tour.

EVERYONE'S response was, "Right, you fucking moron, He's still fighting for the little guy. What lyrics are you hearing?!"

There is conservative rock, BTW. It's called Creed and Ted Nugent.

You guys can have 'em.

More next Monday...
