1. Love this oldie. It's the song at the end of "The Commitments."
2. From "Raw Power," a must-have album.
3. One of the most powerful antiwar songs ever.
4. A Johnny Cash song about a train? Wow, that hardly ever happens...
5. A big hunk of '70's cheese. Probably the worst antiwar song ever.
6. Heard a Violent Femmes song in a commercial recently. Never in a million years...
7. From Springsteen's second album.
8. An outtake that was included on Dylan's great box set, "Biograph."
9. First heard this one on Little Steven's Underground Garage.
10. I remember first hearing this one at Live Aid, which I watched on television in the summer or 1985.
