Song of the Day: Gang of Four - Not Great Men

You can hear Gang of Four's influence everywhere, from bands as diverse as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Futureheads.  I remember downloading this track from Napster in its illegal-but-not-everyone-understands-that-yet phase, and it led me to buy the Entertainment! CD, probably one of the best albums of all time.  Like the Talking Heads, these guys know how to take the punk spirit and put rhythm behind it, and the album is amazingly consistent.  Maybe it's because I heard it first, but "Not Great Men" remains my favorite track.
