Pop Matters: Billy Bragg, "Help Save The Youth of America"

A great live version of Billy Bragg's classic "Help Save the Youth of America", which is more relevant today than ever. Politicians in the United States are always talking about creating a better future for the children, even as they use one hand to grab the cash today and the other to flush the future down the toilet. Shame on them all.

As an added bonus, whoever posted this also included "Waiting For The Great Leap Forwards", which remains my favourite Bragg tune. I've already posted it once here, but it bears repeated listenings, now more than ever.
