Song of the Day: Manic Street Preachers – If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next

Toronto – I came into work and listened to a bunch of Manic Street Preachers. Lefty Canada appears to be in a bit of a turmoil right now with the election of a Conservative majority and while it appears to be dark days ahead, I am reminded of a time in England when the Conservative government was dominating and all hope there seemed to be lost. Some freaking good bands came out during that time and if you look into the past, you will find that when ever the government sucks, great music emerges. So I’m looking forward to some kickass Canadian music coming out in the next little while.

This Manic Street Preachers song has nothing to do with the election, but it arguably has the coolest song title ever. A single off their 1998 album This is My Truth Now Tell Me Yours and has the distinction of being the #1 hit with the longest title (without brackets). The song is about the Spanish Civil War.
