Exclusive Stream: Flogging Molly Rage Against CEOs on 'Speed of Darkness'

Click here to listen to Flogging Molly's album "Speed of Darkness"

Flogging Molly have always focused on the struggles of the working man in their Celtic-influenced punk rock, so it makes sense that they would turn in one of their best records yet in the wake of a worldwide economic downturn. On Speed of Darkness, the Los Angeles band's fifth studio album, the group speak up for those who have lost their jobs and speak against the greed of wealthy CEOs. "The power’s out, guess it’s par for the course / Unless you’re a bloodsucking leech CEO," frontman Dave King sings on the album highlight "The Power's Out." The album will hit stores on May 31st, but you can stream it in full now.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
