over the past eight years the politicians have said and done things so utterly unbelievable that I felt we needed to use endnotes so people wouldn't think we were making things up. That's how bad things have been.

Indie punk band UNDOit today announced the official release of their single "All in the Name of Justice," a raw and emotionally charged punk political lambaste that actually contains endnotes.
"The first words out of my mouth were something like: You've GOT to be kidding! That's after I heard UNDOit absolutely refused to promote their song without endnotes. I mean, what kind of a punk band uses endnotes? I never heard of such a thing. But then, a few grey hairs later, I calmed down and really listened carefully to the song and I thought, yeah, that actually makes a lot of sense for this song because UNDOit's new single is just so uniquely cool," said Gary Brockman of Shizzle Records.
"You know," said UNDOit lead singer/songwriter G, "over the past eight years the politicians have said and done things so utterly unbelievable that I felt we needed to use endnotes so people wouldn't think we were making things up. That's how bad things have been." G continued, "So, for instance, it's a documented fact that former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, actually seriously said we should bomb Iraq because it had better targets than Afghanistan. Never mind that Osama bin Laden and the real cause of 9/11 were all in Afghanistan, let's just go bomb Iraq! Richard Clarke, Chief Counter-Terrorism Adviser on the U.S. National Security Council, said it best when he told Colin Powell, 'Having been attacked by al Qaeda, for us now to go bombing Iraq in response would be like our invading Mexico after the Japanese attacked us at Pearl Harbor.'"
G continued, "And then you have Bush/Cheney, who took it upon themselves to decide that they were going to ignore the Constitution and use executive orders in order to bypass congress and therefore the American public. That sounded so ridiculous I did not believe it at first. Decisions in a democracy take time and require debate. And it's this slow process of debate and checks and balances that protects us from corruption. But Cheney got tired of not getting his way all the time and so covertly passed executive order 13292 and in the process made himself the most powerful Vice President in our history.
You know what our founding fathers would have done to Cheney? They would have drug him out of his home, stripped him, covered him in tar and feathers, sat him in a manure cart, and then wheeled him through town for everyone to laugh at. That's what he and his political party need right now for ignoring the Constitution, illegally spying on us, making us debt slaves to China, over spending, ruining our economy, making Iran too powerful by weakening Iraq, and letting New Orleans suffer horrifically...a good old-fashioned American butt kickin' colonial style.
So that's what this song "All in the Name of Justice" is about. It's our way as musicians to tar and feather the politicians for all the damage they've caused over the past eight years by helping to expose the rude truth of it all not just metaphorically, but with documented facts. It would be undemocratic and morally unthinkable not to hold them accountable for their actions."
UNDOit's music has been played 70,000-plus times in its first weeks on the Internet and UNDOit's single "All in the Name of Justice" is available for download at http://www.undoitmusic.com.
