So for school I have to find a poem or song lyric that kinda goes along with what life was like in the book 1984. If you dont know the book heres some info.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four

I figured since a lot punk songs are about hating government and stuuf, I was wondering if you guys could help me out with a song thats kinda got to do something with 1984.

Immediately springing to mind is '1984' by the 4 skins.

Otherwise, you could go for the Bread Kennedys' 'California Über Alles', or the Clash 's '1977', which both namedrop the book.

"Fuck Everybody Who Voted Tory" by Oi Polloi name drops 1984. Plus it's a decent song.
Journalism is just a gun. It's only got one bullet in it, but if you aim right, that's all you need. Aim it right, and you can blow a kneecap off the world.

I have no idea who or what Tory is, and I refuse to learn because I am an American and I don't care about anyone but myself!

Anyways, you should totally enlighten me on who Tory is. I have no idea and I generally like that song.

Big Brother by the Subhumans
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
You fixed yourself, you said, "Well, never mind,
We are ugly, but we have the music."

1984 - David Bowie, it's inspired by the book
can't believe I beat Jet to this one.

AS;DLJKF H;SADIJALF FUCK YOUR LIFE!! A;SLKDJ I WAS AT SCHOOL IT'S NOT MY FAULT!!!

But yeah, he's right, do 1984 by Bowie. Or "We Are the Dead," also by Bowie. Both are based on the book.

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

The whole Diamond Dogs album was supposed to originally be based on 1984 right?

Ok, I swear I posted a reply about the tories.

In a nutshell: Margaret Thatcher was the head of the Tory Government that systematically raped the United Kingdom over the 1980's.
