Perhaps The Internationale?

This NPR piece about the first song you to play your newborn baby made me think what I would do.

Maybe The Dead Kennedy's "Kill the Poor"? Or Steve Earle's "Fuck the FCC"? Or Dick Justice's 1920s classic "Cocaine," with its great chorus, "I'd simply wild about my good cocaine."

I might as well start the poor kid out on the right foot. They are going to resent me anyway, so why not speed up the process?

Also, the people in the NPR story sound unbearably pretentious.
