Probably because it's the only Modest Mouse song that doesn't make you want to slit your wrists. It's actually somewhat optimistic.

I don't believe that anyone other than classic rock DJs have ever made a fuss about Lynard Skynard.

I have actually never listened to a full album from them. But I can say that Sweet Home Alabama is probably among my three or four most despised songs. That line about "conscience bothering you" over Watergate is so ludicrously hypocritical that I can barely stomach it. They put a Confederate flag on the single cover and then have the audacity to preach about conscience.

Agreed. Fuck those guys.

And also fuck all that "the South will rise again" bullshit. Not with those literacy rates.

I hate it as well, along with Werewolves of London and their evil, shall-not-be-named spawn that came out a few years ago.
