Oakland’s Bang Data puts a contemporary political spin on this remake of Creedence Clearwater’s Fortunate Son.
“Some folks are born made to wave the flag,” they sing. “Ooh, they’re red, white and blue. And when the band plays Hail to the Chief, ooh, they point the cannon at you.”
Bang Data wants you to register to vote.
POCHO does too.
Maybe I’ll vote this year. Really, as long as I remember where the place is and I can get a space, and if, well, it depends what’s going on that day. After all, “we’re up to our ears in Mexicans!” (An epic musical production.)
