There's a trance group called boo maga that has a recording called Under
Attack that samples a bunch of Chomsky's political sound bites.
There's also a song called Noam CHomsky by Karma Covered Apple.
A lot more turned up on my search of song lyrics Chomsky on google, and
most of this music is available for download on mp3.com and other sites if
"Noam Chomsky" -- Karma Covered Apple
Countin' constellations while you're looking through
While speaking mega McMadonna log
Drive an Instamatic Cadillac
Through every sociopolopoly
It's all muh-nah* muh-nah monopoly
There's no duh-de duh-dee dignity
And realistic ????
And it seems
A li'l paranoid
Expecting confrontation plodding into view
Through a telescopic catalog
While they realign the cosmograph
After brief important messages
That they whisper into megaphones
I hear it's really catastrophical
I'm speaking purely philosophical
And a circle
And a square
And a trapezoid
Broadcasting live from stations far inside the groove
Spinning out the future retrospect
The omega McMc alphabet
Stepping out, standing invitations
I see the demographic acrobat
Writin' elements of artifact
The realistic kinds of cul-de-sacs
Through the circle
Through the square
Through the trapezoid.
