Monday Music

Monday Music is a regular feature whose goal is to provide you with some music to get you fired up for another week of doing the yeoperson’s work of educating the citizenry. Requests welcome!

Driving through Milwaukee yesterday, my thoughts fell upon what I always think about going through that town–Bratwurst, Laverne DeFazio, Beer, the BoDeans, Milwaukee County Stadium, Summerfest, and the best thing to come out of Milwaukee: The Violent Femmes. It’s not my absolute favorite Femmes song (nor favorite version of this song), but I think of this song often while grading…”This will go down on your permanent record!” It’s surprisingly good to thrash around to as well, should you be in the mood for a little thrashing this morning.
