Song of the Day: "Rise" by PIL (Public Image Ltd.) ft. Johnny Lydon

I love everything about "Rise" by Public Image Ltd. , from Johnny Lydon's nearly-gone-mad vocal delivery to the production to the lyrics. I recently read Johnny Lydon's biography, appropriately titled "Anger is an energy." In the book, he said that of all the lines he's written over the years, starting with his Johnny Rotten Sex Pistols days to his long PIL tenure, his favorite is in this song. "Anger is an energy."

He's right, you know.
