The 50 Greatest Conservative Rock Songs.

John J. Miller at National Review Online has assembled a sometimes surpising list of songs that Time magazine covergirls, The Dixie Twits, wouldn't appreciate while they whore for free publicity with their faux bravery. A sample:

27. “Obvious Song,” by Joe Jackson.
For property rights and economic development, and against liberal hypocrisy: “There was a man in the jungle / Trying to make ends meet / Found himself one day with an axe in his hand / When a voice said ‘Buddy can you spare that tree / We gotta save the world — starting with your land’ / It was a rock ’n’ roll millionaire from the USA / Doing three to the gallon in a big white car / And he sang and he sang ’til he polluted the air / And he blew a lot of smoke from a Cuban cigar.”
Check it out.
