You Gotta Fight...For Your Right...To Not Fight After All

Just a day after I read a feature somewhere (The Boston Globe? The New York Times?) decrying the almost-total lack of modern anti-war protest songs, Bragg and Earle notwithstanding, the Beastie Boys release In A World Gone Mad..., about which Adam Horovitz has this to say:

This song is not an anti-American or pro-Saddam Hussein statement. This is a statement against an unjustified war.

It's a decent song, and the Boys from Brooklyn have redone their home page to showcase the song and their statement; each is quoted, but other than the download itself, the page offers little more than links for those who wish to get involved.

Download it here or here.

Hey, did you know the Beastie Boys met in Yeshiva?
