Deep Cuts: Greed Songs

Is greed good?

If you correlate greed with ambition then I guess so, but that’s not how most people define the term. Most everybody who isn’t a sociopath considers greed a borderline mental illness, somewhere between addiction and a compulsive disorder, perhaps.

But maybe there are some things that it’s okay to be greedy for: kindness, for example. We can’t get enough kindness. And records. I want all of the records. Gimme gimme this, gimme gimme that!

Here’s a few records from my stacks that address greed:

“Pure Greed,” G.B.H.

“Hatred and Greed,” Ajenda.

“Avarice,” Disturbed.

“Greed,” Godsmack.

“Stop Being Greedy,” DMX.

“Ship Of Fools,” World Party.

“Greed,” Mercy House.

There you have it: Seven songs about greed. You want more, don’t you? Man, you’re so greedy.
