The Dropkick Murphys Stand with Wisconsin

To show their support for the fight in Wisconsin to keep workers' rights for public employees, the Dropkick Murphys released a song from their new CD early. From the Dropkick Murphys' announcement:

Hey Everyone the Dropkick Murphys would like to take a moment to acknowledge the struggles of the working people of Wisconsin and to pledge our support and solidarity by releasing the song “Take Em Down” from our upcoming album. We think it’s appropriate at the moment and hope you like it.

They are also selling "Take 'Em Down" t-shirts to raise money for the Workers' Rights Emergency Response Fund.

Some lyrics from the song:
when the boss comes callin' they'll put us down
when the boss comes callin' gotta stand your ground
when the boss comes callin' don't believe their lies

when the boss comes callin' he'll take his toll
when the boss comes callin' don't you sell your soul
when the boss comes callin' we gotta organize

Here's a YouTube video combining the song with footage of the Madison protests.

Apparently we have to wait until March 1st to buy the song on iTunes. :(
