This arrived in our inbox yesterday: a cover of the Minutemen's great “Political Song for Michael Jackson to Sing.” If you don't know the song by San Pedro's finest, you should hear it first, to see what exactly Helen Money did to it:

Best line in the song: “If we heard mortar shells we'd cuss more in our songs and cut down the guitar solos.”
