And here is a song to start things off this week:

Due to the high volume of submissions and the limited number of hours in a day, we’ll be selecting two songs from each member, but feel free to share as many as you like!


:headphones: Curious what Mixtape Monday is? :headphones:
Every week, we’ll post the title of our latest Mixtape, and you post tracks of your choice in the comments below! We’ll follow up next Mixtape Monday with the list of tunes, two from each user, collected from the week before. And if our “What’s the Last Song You Heard?” thread is any indication, you all have superb taste in tunes!

I mean, I think the obvious Dead Kennedys anthem violates all the forum guidelines, but can we just note that Nazi Punks F:00_superman1::00_cyborg_rebirth::kitemanhqtas: Off (and nearly the complete works of Anti-Flag) should be on this playlist?

I am going to look at this week’s selections as a playlist that is :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: racism.

Just one submission from me:

We hate each other 'cause of race and religion
We hate each other 'cause of class and position
We want to know why is love so hard to come by
Give me a reason why is love so hard to try

The walls between us all must fall
The walls between us all must fall

We hate each other 'cause we dance to different music
We hate each other 'cause we think we know it all
We hate each other 'cause that’s what our parents taught us
We hate each other for no reason at all

The wall between us all must fall
The wall between us all must fall

We teach our young men how to kill and maim and torture
We teach our young men how to make their mothers cry
We want to know why is love so hard to come by?
Give me the answer, why is love so hard to try?

The wall between us all must fall
The wall between us all must fall

This is how our world breaks down…
The wall between us all must fall
This is how our world breaks down…
The wall between us all must fall

I’ll just get right to it. Here’s what I brought this week! A variety of my feelings on racist, fascist BS. (This just has to happen whether it gets added to the list or not: Strange Fruit- Billy Holiday) :purple_heart: Plz enjoy & take care, everyone.

We Are The Ones- The Coup

Mississippi (God)damn- Nina Simone (:eyes: sees @keath beat me to it! Great pick! :sunglasses: I’ll add another version! And another song for my 2!)

I really was tempted to pick a Woody Guthrie song for my addition to this list, but I should have known I wouldn’t be the only one to think of his music. :slight_smile:
