Songs for "I'm Not Going to Take It Anymore Day"

Every day is special. Yesterday was National Cuddle Day. Tomorrow we celebrate Man Watcher's Day, and on Saturday, Play God Day. Cuddle Day was good to me. I'll check out some men on Friday, and perhaps manipulate them come Saturday. But today, today is extra special. It's "I'm Not Going to Take It Anymore Day." Before you get that stupid Twisted Sister song in your head, here's a playlist in honor of the day. Girlfriend got a cheatin' heart? Hate your boss? Husband give you a black eye? Damn it, you're better than all that! Today, you can tell everyone to shove it. You have some national day-maker's permission, as well as mine. Listen here for inspiration, and go to it, then, you big badass.

"Take This Job and Shove It" - Johnny Paycheck

In this David Allan Coe-penned, Dead Kennedys-covered hit, Johnny Paycheck's woman done left him, takin' with her all the reasons he's been workin' fer. Notable line: The line boss, he's a fool, got a brand new flat-top haircut, Lord he thinks he's cool. One of these days, I'm gonna blow my top and that sucker, he's gonna pay.


"Independence Day" - Martina McBride

In an uncharacteristically violent song for Martina McBride, "Independence Day" (sung here with Pat Benatar) details the story of a young girl's mother who sets the family home ablaze to end abuse from her husband. Notable lyric: Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing. Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning. Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong. Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay, it's Independence Day.


"Fast As You" - Dwight Yoakam

You hurt me, well someday you'll hurt too. Drinking, sleeping around, then breaking hearts aids in this process. Notable lyric: Maybe I'll be fast as you. Maybe I'll break hearts too. But I think that you'll slow down when your turn to hurt comes around. Maybe I'll break hearts and be as fast as you.
