Stuck In Thee Garage #139: July 29, 2016

Politics and rock music have always been strange bedfellows. You've either got artists supporting candidates or complaining when one uses their music at a campaign event. And of course, there have been plenty of great songs about politics released over the years. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I played songs about politics in hour 2. It's, like, cool and stuff.
