Sonic Overload 6/30/14

Independence Day or, as most people call it, the Fourth of July, approaches and it’s time, once again, for Sonic Overload’s Salute to America. Some might perceive it as a middle-finger salute with some of the songs played on the show and, well, I won’t argue that point for some of the tracks. However, some of them are just observational songs, making note of what goes on in this country. I have to admit feeling disgust while recording the show and finding out that the Supreme Court just came down with a decision on the Hobby Lobby case. To make a very long story short (do your own research if you want), it means that companies can’t be required to pay for insurance coverage for contraception under the Affordable Care Act. That it supposedly violates “religious freedom.” Along with the Citizens United, declaring that corporations are people, striking down part of the voting rights back and other reprehensible decisions, this is by far the worst Supreme Court of my lifetime.

But, hey, fire up the grill, throw back some brews and sing those patriotic songs. America, fuck yeah!! God bless America? Goddamn America!
