Liner Notes: “If you put John Philip Sousa and Black Flag in an orchestra/mosh pit, you’d get ‘Fight Song (Show Them The Floor),” Wedren tells us. “‘Fight Song’ is a gladiatorial meditation on triumph, grit, the glory of battle, and a good ol’ fashioned boot stomping, in the classic and most sportsmanlike sense, when war was chivalrous, and lions might eat your head.”

“But also, it’s  is a cover of a school spirit anthem that never existed in the first place,” adds Friedman.
