After 9/11 The Coup changed this cover (CLICK TO READ VH1 ARTICLE) .
Here's a "cut" of the VH1 article on The Coup's album cover and group...
"The 12-cut Party Music brims with charged political messages. It remains consistent with the Coup's earlier funk-inspired work, which is largely shaped by Boots, a self-declared communist and community activist.
The cut also makes a statement about the current level of hip-hop activism."
JDS' Note:  We all know about First Amendment Rights (which even gives "We The People... Rule!" air).  And, we all know that often "life often imitates 'art'" (I placed 'art' in quotes because I wish not to grace anarchy or communism)... BUT ONE HAS TO HAVE AN UNEASY FEELING THAT SUCH A GRAPHIC IMAGE AS THE COUP'S CD COVER MAY... JUST MAY INSPIRE, OR AFFIRM SUCH A TWISTED ATTACK AS THE ONE ON WORLD TRADE CENTER.

The track "5 Million Ways to Kill a C.E.O." examines the upper class' unquenchable greed, while "Get Up" rallies for a revolution against what Boots and guests Dead Prez say is a corrupt U.S. government.

Remember, We All Rule When We Speak Out And Vote!

"Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion,
 but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime."
Adlai E. Stevenson, Jr.

Here's What's At Stake!
With the launch of our site,, it is a good time to state facts which are sure to get lost in all of the political squabbling that is going on. Just what we know today, at stake with this election is the following 1)the prosecution of the war against terrorism, 2) the resolution of the Iraq War, and of even longer term importance 3) the nomination of two-- perhaps three -- Supreme Court Justices. This is not to forget the economy, our borders, health-care, the nomination of other justices,and a bunch of other matters that have grown "long in the tooth" on legislative dockets. Being the first presidential election since 9/11, it is critical to air the issues. This will not be an easy matter with a secretive Presidential Office and an challenger whose position is about as certain as the weather. I anticipate you comments.
