Great Antiwar Video from Old Crow Medicine Show

As so many politicians and pundits try to whip up enthusiasm for attacking Iran, we’d be wise to recall the ravages of war on those who actually have to fight and bleed.

I’ve long enjoyed the Old Crow Medicine Show song, “Big Time in the Jungle.” I came across this YouTube video that makes its antiwar message far more potent.

Hopefully the next decade will not see piercing folk songs about the plight of American soldiers fighting in Iran’s Zagros or Elburz Mountains or cutting their way from the Caspian Sea to Strait of Hormuz.

Old Crow Medicine Show also has a powerful rendition of the song, “Ruby Ridge.”

  2. Great post!
    The Old Crow boys played a new song over the summer which fans believe will be titled “Levi,” and it’s a very similar message to “Big Time In the Jungle,” but with more of a modern message.
    It’s quite a beautiful tune and I hope it’s on the new album coming out sometime this year.
