Rust is a great if a little hackneyed metaphor, so I’m surprised that I have so few “rust” songs in my stacks.
Rust is the great symbol of industrial decay, after all. When we’re long gone our bricks and stones will remain, but in a relatively short amount of time all iron traces of man’s existence will flake away. I guess future civilizations will still know us by our Twinkies.
Anyway, rust songs:
“Rusty Cage,” Johnny Cash.
“Diamonds and Rust,” Judas Priest.
“Rusty Casino’s Casino Rustique,” Flipron.
“Over Rusty Water,” XTC.
“Flowers and Rust,” Von Hertzen Brothers.
“Rusted Pipe,” Suzanne Vega.
“Rust,” Echo & the Bunnymen.
“Rust In Peace….Polaris,” Megadeth.
That’s all I have in the way of rust songs, but since it never sleeps you probably have a few to add. I’m listening.
