If this song isn’t the unofficial anthem on Labor Day, it should be.
Of course, Take This Job And Shove It is best known as a country song. The most popular version of the song was performed by Johnny Paycheck and it spoke to the frustrations of everyone who was stuck in a bad job and who dreamed of just telling the foreman or the shift manager to go to Hell. The song was Paycheck’s biggest hit and it was subsequently performed by many artists, some country and some not. Dead Kennedys covered the song and, as seen in this 1984 performance at Olympics Auditorium, they added their own spin to the song.
