12 Great Anti-Royalty Songs

So, monarchy fever seems to have crested with Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee festivities this past weekend and its related Diamond Jubilee BBC Concert.

Being someone who’s connection to Britain is virtually zero (Irish-French heritage, fully Canadian on both sides going back hundreds of years), my knowledge of the royal family has been mostly informed by what cool British rock bands say — and most cool British rock bands don’t like the Queen.

As such, I compiled a list of 12 Great Anti-Royalty Songs as a sort of inverse Diamond Jubilee Concert.

You can check out that list — featuring the likes of Morrissey, Blur and Billy Bragg — over at Spinner by clicking here.
