Early punk rock was all about musicians writing brash, acerbic political songs and Cheap Trick’s “Taxman, Mr. Thief” wasn’t afraid of telling the truth about how the majority of the population feels when they barely make money and then they get a sizable portion of their paycheck taken away from them:

“You work hard, you make money/There ain’t no on in the world who can stop you/You work hard, you went hungry/Now the taxman is out to get you.”
