    I think this is about capitalism in the US. Great track, fun to sing and play bass to.

    agreed. the version playing now is hornless, so that's so much better.... aaaah.

    there are a couple versions @coolbeanie. the "Eponymous" version (greatest hits) was redone with the horns. The original ... off document... no horns. I like it hornless myself.

    The horns aren't bad, but I prefer the Document version, sans horns. It feels like a Peter Gabriel song with the horns...

    Mike Mills played slap bass for this one, kind of a change for him.

    YOUR FINEST HOOOOOOOUR... Such a great track. Reminds me of Begin the Begin, but maybe better.
