Song of the Day 11/24/08

The top 666 songs of alltime countdown continues, one day at a time all the way to #1. Monday’s is #610:

The False Prophets – Suburbanites Invade

Hilarious and sadly prescient reggae-punk from this theatrical LES New York band, 1986, a snide tale of spoiled brats turning working-class New York City neighborhoods into their own private Babylon (as in Babylon, Long Island). From their first Alternative tentacles album; check the usual mp3 sites. Because they were such a good live band, many of the live takes are even funnier than the original. A regrouped version of the band with a couple of original members continues to tour.
