The Rich Men North of Richmond by Oliver Anthony is an anthem for the working poor in rural America who few in this country fucking care about or are even aware fucking exist. It is going viral. For damned good reason. I live in Appalachia. This song speaks to me and what I see in my own community among the truly downtrodden. The fucking WRETCHED. People like ME. Fuck the politicians.
