Songs for Quitting Your Job

From the Washington City Paper blog Black Plastic Bag

Paige Maguire over at NPR put together a 5-song playlist for anyone suffering from economic woes and job insecurity.

“For some, it’s years of cubicles and monkey suits and unbearable workloads, while others have lost their marbles and wound up getting walked to their car. Whatever happens, we’re guessing it’s going to be epic and terrible, which means you’re going to need consolation and encouragement in the form of five great rock tunes.”

Among his picks are The Animals’ “We Gotta Get Out of This Place,” and The Dead Kennedys’ “Bedtime for Democracy.” He had some good tracks, but his playlist doesn’t satisfy my economy-induced misery.

Here are my picks:

Woody Guthrey - Better World A-Comin’

Deerhoof - Scream Team

Rush - Big Money

Walkmen - The Rat

Black Flag - Rise Above

What’s on your 5-song economic meltdown playlist?
