Song of the Day 3/8/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Monday’s song is #143:

The Coup – Underdogs

No other song as succinctly and accurately captures the raw desperation of inner city poverty as well as this Clinton-era classic from the Oakland hip-hop crew’s 1999 cd Steal This Album. “I’d tear this shit up if I really loved you – and so would you.”
