Libertarian Music Friday: Public Enemy Edition

Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos may just have the most libertarian opening lyrics ever…

I got a letter from the government
The other day
I opened and read it
It said they were suckers
They wanted me for their army or whatever
Picture me given’ a damn – I said never
Here is a land that never gave a damn
About a brother like me and myself
Because they never did
I wasn’t wit’ it, but just that very minute…
It occured to me
The suckers had authority

  1. See also Jello Biafra with DOA’s album “Last Scream of the Missing Neighbors” which has the excellent “Power is boring” and “Full Metal Jackoff”. Bad Religion also is very good, but from a left-anarchist perspective: “Portrait of authority”, “American Jesus”, “All good soldiers”, “Voice of God is Government”….
