Today the Top 100 Songs of Summer heads into battle, berserker style. Consider this song an ode to Hamptons summer traffic, long lines and the general madness of our overflowing seasonal populace. Don’t feel bad, any one of these things could drive a person to fight, or at least consider the possibility. You’re not alone in your frustration.

Hamptons 100 Songs of Summer #45

“The Fight Song” by Marilyn Manson

Listening to this intense, driving, aggressive song about fighting might just be enough to keep one from actually throwing punches. Despite the violent feelings it inspires, “The Fight Song” is actually a message against violence and America’s glorification of it to our youth. Manson released the song on his 2001 album Holywood and many believed it was a statement about the Columbine shootings, for which he was partly blamed two years before.

Marilyn Manson could be one of the last rock stars people would connect to the Hamptons, but sometimes a little hard charging music can soothe our troubled souls, take us down off the preverbial “ledge” during infuriating moments, or simply help us blow off some steam. It’s unlikely we’ll see a real break from the heat, the traffic or the lines until September, so consider “The Fight Song” your panacea for summer craziness on the East End. Download, press play, crank volume and see us in the morning.
