Obviously the conservatives have never heard of “irony.”
The most hilarious inclusions:
1. The Who – “Won’t Get Fooled Again”
2. The Beatles – “Taxman”
23. Ben Folds Five – “Brick,” which was described as: “Written from the perspective of a man who takes his young girlfriend to an abortion clinic, this song describes the emotional scars of “‘reproductive freedom'” Since when do conservatives have emotions?
48. The Offspring – “Why Don’t You Get a Job?”: “The lyrics aren’t exactly Shakespearean, but they’re refreshingly blunt and they capture a motive force behind welfare reform.”

The Beatles – “Taxman”: mp3
I dunno, guys, listen to George Harrison and tell me if you think he sounds pro-right wing to me. I might be wrong.
