Less then a week before the G20 summit is set to take place, it looks like we've got our first anti- G20 protest song, courtesy of one DJ B# of Maynooth, Ont.
Woody Guthrie it ain't - it's actually a rendering of a remix of Dance Dance Dance by Swedish indie-pop darling Lykke Li.
Endorsed by the Toronto Community Mobilization Network, the tune is punctuated by samples of some very earnest-sounding people saying things like: "If you want to talk about violence at the G20, you should be talking about the violence the G20 is inflicting on the communities and we shouldn't be surprised if people are angry."
