Hey DiS, long time listener etc.
Can anyone think of decent songs about shit/precarious work that aren’t just old men with guitars harping on about unions.
The only ones I can think of atm are Precarious (Supermarket) - Martha & Journey to the call centre of the earth - The exhausts.
off the top of my head…
The Smiths “Frankly Mr Shankly”
Million Dead “To Whom It May Concern”
The Futureheads - First Day
The vocals from about 1:44 to 3:10 are amazing, incredible performance. When I first heard it was both in awe and crying with laughter… “THIS IS THE WORST JOB IVE EVER HAD. NO BREAKS…THIS IS RIDICULOUS!”
Whole song is great though
I’m working, BUT I’M NOT WORKING FOR YOU!

the last verse of dead prez - ‘hell yeah’ would apply too but I guess the rest of it doesn’t really
