Joan Jett Fights Foo at MSG

“The world’s in trouble, there’s no communication.” “Bad Reputation” is still one of the greatest songs of all time. And I love the way Dave Grohl yells “Joan Jett!” when it’s over. A genuine arena-rock blast. Come on rock hall voters; you’re paying attention, right!

This Land Is Your Land

During the last depression, they called them Hoovervilles. In this American autumn, we call them occupations. Amanda Palmer presciently released this photo tour of Occupy spaces yesterday afternoon, before New York’s mayor evicted Wall Street’s pioneers. She sings an old song about a previous generation of patriots, the Diggers. I still prefer Billy Bragg’s version, but AFP’s is well timed.
