Songs that Rock but anger you!

Well, after I listened to "American Pie" by Don Mclean for the Billianth time, I decided to figure out what all the lyrics meant.
Here's a quick run down:
king= Elvis (Dur)
Jester= Bob Dylan
Devil= Mick Jagger
The Quartet= The Beatles
The playing Field= Woodstock/ Altamont
The girl who sang the blues= Janis Joplin
Then as I inserted all these names, I realized that the Whole Dang song is about Don
Mclean Hating on Mick Jagger and the Stones!!!
I Freakin' Dig the Stones! But that song is classic!
What are some other Songs that Rock but anger you?

Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A southern man don't need him around any how

here are the lyrics from lyrics.com... You tell me why people from the South might not like this song...



Southern man better keep your head
Don't forget what your good book said
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast
Southern man

I saw cotton and I saw black
Tall white mansions and little shacks.
Southern man when will you pay them back?
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?

Southern man better keep your head
Don't forget what your good book said
Southern change gonna come at last
Now your crosses are burning fast
Southern man

Lily Belle, your hair is golden brown
I've seen your black man comin' round
Swear by God I'm gonna cut him down!
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?

Well, when Don Mclean says "A generation lost in space" He is either talking about Woodstock or Altamont. Both were music festivals. "So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick Jack Flash sat on a candlestick 'Cause fire is the Devil's only friend" This is the reference to two Stones songs "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Symphony for the Devil". This tells us that the Stones were playing. The Rolling Stones never played at Woodstock but they played at Altamont. as you listen on Don Mclean talks about "Moonlighting a Sacrificial Rite". As the Stone's were playing, an African American man started making his way torwards the stage with a gun making an attempt to assassinate Mick Jagger. This was late in the night. Security intercepted him and killed him without a second thought. this reinforces the fact that it was the Stone's at Altamont. Mclean ends this verse with the lyrics "I saw Satan laughing with delight the day the music died". After the attemped assassination, Mick Jagger was in the middle of one of his songs, Laughing. The frontman of The Rolling stones is Mick Jagger, and it is a fact that Don Mclean hated Jagger. So there you go!
