Born to be wild?
What would an election campaign be without a catchy new theme song to pump up the troops? Today the Bloc unveiled its new anthem,which will be played ahead of all of Gilles Duceppe's stump speeches.
Set to a heavy rock beat, the song entitled "Le Bloc Repond Present" (The Bloc Calls Present), the gravelly voice of singer Matt Laurent belts out a rebellious tune over a wailing electric guitar, which, roughly translated, goes:
"I don't want to shut up / Or be told what to do / I stir things up in government departments / Don't wanna rent anymore / I want my own place / It's time to take back the land that's mine."
What's next? Gilles Duceppe rolling up to his campaign events on a Harley, in a black leather jacket and shades?
