We’re into the second week of the government shut down and lawmakers appear no closer to a deal than they were seven days ago.
While the administration spends its time trying to punish World War II veterans trying to see their own memorial in Washington, D.C., we’re finding ways to help you survive – and thrive, even – during the shutdown.
We’ve compiled these 10 songs to help you make it through each day. Some of the videos even include special dedications to key figures in the battle over funding Obamacare!
To the list!
Pitbull ft. Akon – Shut it down
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers – Won’t back down
Dedicated to: President Barack Obama, Senator Harry Reid and Speaker of the House John Boehner, natch.
Well I won’t back down, no I won’t back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down
NeYo – Shut me down
The Doors – This is the end
Greenday – American idiot
Simple Plan – Time to say goodbye
Dedicated to: Voters!
After all the things I’ve done for you
You never tried to do the same
It’s like you always play the victim
And I’m the one you always blame
When you need someone to save you
When you think you’re going to drown
(Think you’re going to drown)
You just grab your arms around me and pull me down
Tear for fears – Everybody wants to rule the world
R.E.M- It’s the end of the world as we know it
Billy Currington – Pretty good at drinking beer
Dedicated to: Members of Congress
A go getter maybe I’m not
I’m not known for doin’ a lot
But I do my best work when the weather’s hot
I’m pretty good at drinkin’ beer
Anna Sun – Walk the moon
