Danny Nedelko - IDLES

from the album Joy As An Act Of Resistance (2018)

There is nothing quite like a driving, socially indignant, punk tune to light a fire in your belly.  Danny Nedelko might be the essence of such a song in 2018.

The song offers a full-throated endorsement for more lenient immigration policies in general, and particularly in support of the lyricist's friend, Danny Nedelko.  Dig the opening lyrics:

My blood brother is an immigrant
A beautiful immigrant
My blood brother is Freddie Mercury
A Nigerian mother of three

He's made of bones, he's made of blood
He's made of flesh, he's made of love
He's made of you, he's made of me
Unity

Yet the lyrics keep getting better, and more on point:

Fear leads to panic, panic leads to pain
Pain leads to anger, anger leads to hate

This is protest music.  We always need more of it.
