Don Imus Slips a Great Anti-War Folk-Rock Song onto Fox-TV: KMAG YOYO!
By John Grant
From the WTF Department, here's something from Fox TV's Don Imus Show last December.
Hayes Carll is a young country singer from Texas with a fantastic surreal song about an 18-year-old soldier in Afghanistan that is up there with the best of Dylan, with elliptical lyrics like Desolation Row you never get tired of reaching for to figure out.
It's called KMAG YOYO, which in military argot means "Kiss My Ass Guys. You're On Your Own." (This version is the one broadcast on Sirius Radio, because the lyrics are easier to hear. If you want a performance with more of a live feel, check out the Fox Imus performance.)
Is it Antiwar? No question. But better than that, it's pro living, breathing life and it really jumps. Check it out!...
