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