9/11 Truth Soundtrack

I think part of the psychosis of the "truth" movement is the belief that, "If we could just get our message into song, then people will see the light, maaan." The majority of this crowd is made up of 20-something wanna-be stoners who divide their time up evenly between YouTube and their guitar, maaan. It's therefore an unavoidable consequence that, eventually, they're gonna be makin' some sweet, sweet music about the lies we were sold on 9/11.

I'm not going to go so far as to say it's good music. But some of these are damn funny....

First up on the playlist is Jolie with Our Kind - a rousing anthem dedicated to our soldiers who are fighting for a lie. After all... "Professional demolition brought those towers down." Aside from the lyrics, it's a pretty well produced song. This chick obviously takes herself very seriously.

Next, we got Judy Would. This is a play on the name of the former Scholar for 9/11 Truth, Judy Wood, who compared the Twin Towers to.... trees. What saddens me is that this self-proclaimed engineer fails to see that trees are not 90% air. What makes me happy again is the fact that this song is so ridiculous. Lyrics can be found here. It's funnier if you read along while the dude is singing. The Grammy quote:

Can we get our mind around disintegrating walls . . .

. . .with billiard balls?

Finally, my favorite. Starstika's 9-11 Was An Inside Job. For some reason all I can think to compare this to is Chumbawamba. It's just got that feel to it. Lyrics here. With this song, repetition is key. You may not buy into the whole inside job thing at first, but wait till the chorus comes around and repeats it for you 8 times in a row.

Thanks, as always, to Pat and James over at SLC.
