The 11 Best R.E.M. Songs - The IRS Years


In 17 days, people will be lining up at every post office in the country as if Led Zeppelin reunion tickets were going sale. Lines will stretch down the street like the food kitchens on Thanksgiving Day. For one reason and one reason only: to pay their taxes. Now, most people will be paying taxes that are equivalent of the price of Led Zeppelin tickets (and no you can't write that off). And they will be bitching and complaining that the government is stealing their hard earned money. It's their money...they should be able to do whatever they want with it. They will bitch about this after they leave the post office, while driving on a "paved road, " which is kept safe by a "co-ordinated light signal." They will be driving in a car that has been put through numerous "safety tests" so as it doesn't blow up while driving. They will luckily avoid most accidents since the "police" and "ambulance drivers" will take care of any problem when it occurs. They will get home and watch "free" TV, drink "treated" water, eat "FDA-approved" food., while their country is being kept safe from "invading ninjas" (seriously, it's a real problem). So bitch up, America! It's your freedom to do so.

Here are the 11 Best R.E.M. Songs - The IRS Years:

2. Driver 8 (Fables of the Reconstruction)
