Thread Name: Listen to this classic new protest song!
Subject: RE: Listen to this classic new protest song!
"Instant Classic" is an oxymoron. Wait at least 50 years before describing a song as a Classic.
I'm not sure about "brilliant" either. I thought Jean Ritchie's song was much better but the video certainly highlights the mess left behind by the mining companies. Are they not expected to clean it up when they have extracted the coal?
