“Black Spartacus Heart Attack Machine” – The Nightwatchman

From Tom Morello’s kick-ass band The Nightwatchman, “Black Spartacus Heart Attack Machine” is a great song about getting off your ass and fighting for what’s right. It’s what a collaboration between Lou Reed and The Clash at the peak of their powers might sound like … only better.

“History’s not made
By presidents or popes
Or kings or queens or generals
Or CIA kingpins runnin’ dope
History’s not made
By nine robed men
Or billionaires or bankers
It’s not made by them!”

As Graham Parker once said: “Get started! Start a fire!”
