The best loony left/ tree hugger/anti military song?

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Bushmills, Mar 21, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. You must admit that some pinko's/pacifists have a good ear for music; what's your favourite leftie tune?

    I nominate this one, very tuneful celebration of the dishonourable conduct of some of the lowest forms of life ever to disgrace the RN (tried to hand over the fleet to the French during the Napoleonic war), but a bloody good tune.

    The Men They Couldn't Hang The Colours (2) - YouTube
     
  2. War by Edwin Starr
     
  3. Talkin' those vietnam pot Luck Blues - Tom Paxton
     
  4. Civil war by Gun n Roses
     
  5. In the Army Now - Status Quo
     
  6. Not sure about the best, but the worst is deffo "Neun und Neunzig luft balons""

  9. Green Fields of France. Even the Dropkick Murphys tone it down a bit for that one!

    The Band Played Waltzing Matilda.

    Not completely according to the thread title, but The Fields of Athenry is available as everything from a dirge to a stomp-along.
     
  10. Interesting thread - can't think of anything at the moment though. I'll have to give it some thought.
