"Proletarian Hop" as written by and Johan Brandstrom Johan Gustafsson....
A revolution with a goal so fine
From 36 to 1939
They say it ended that last year
But the fascists are still here
The war ain't over and the battle ain't won
The struggle, baby, has just begun
So fascist pigs start to run
We won't forget what you've done

It's a war between the classes
The privileged few against the masses
The Spanish anarchists said: "No pasaran!"
I say we stick to that until the war is won

It's a proletarian hop
Proletarian hop
Proletarian hop
That just won't stop
Proletarian hop
Proletarian hop
Proletarian hop
That just won't stop

Time to set the record straight once and for all
Death to all the neo-liberals
I want to see the stockmarket crash
And the ones who deserves it get the cash

It's a war between the classes
The privileged few against the masses
The Spanish anarchists said: "No pasaran!"
I say we stick to that until the war is won

It's a proletarian hop
Proletarian hop
Proletarian hop
That just won't stop
Proletarian hop
Proletarian hop
Proletarian hop
That just won't stop

We won't forget what they've done
The fascists may think that they've won
But the war against the fascists is a classwar too
It conserns everybody, baby, even you - ?No pasaran!
Everything evolves around money - ?No pasaran!
We don't even think about it honey - ?No pasaran!
There is money involed no matter what we do - ?No pasaran!
Everybody tries to make abuck or two - ?No pasaran! ?No pasaran!

It's a war between the classes
The privileged few against the masses
Spanish anarchists said: "?No pasaran!"
I say we stick to that until the war is won

Proletarian hop
And it just won't stop
Proletarian hop
No it just won't stop
Proletarian hop
Oh it just won't stop
Proletarian hop
Come on boys lets go

It's a proletarian hop
A proletarian hop
A proletarian hop
That just won't stop
Proletarian hop
A proletarian hop
A proletarian hop
That just won't stop

    General CommentThis song is about the Spanish Civil War, which occured from 1936-1939. After the monarchy dissolved in Spain, the leftists, allied as the Popular Front, gained control of the government, much to the dismay of the fascists, who launched a coup led by General Fransico Franco. At the same time, the anarchists were reorganizing society, turning entire cities into communes, abolishing wage labor and hierarchy. A war emerged in which there were basically three factions.

    First, there were the fascists, who sought to overthrow the democratically elected government in favor of a dictatorship. Second, there were the moderate socialists and communists, who's only goal was to beat the fascists. Their philosophy was basically that this was the first priority, and that the societal revolution could come later. Lastly, there were the anarchists, who believed that the class war and the war against the fascists were inseperable ("THE WAR AGAINST THE FASCISTS IS A CLASSWAR TOO") They completely reorganized cities, abolishing money and wage labor, smashing the churches, communalizing everything, ending sexism, and keeping production at the same level the whole time. Catalonia circa 1939 is seen by many anarchists as proof that a society can function without coercion. This brought them into conflict with the communists, supported by Stalin, who eventually ended up betraying them by attacking their former allies, leading to a fascist victory in the war.

    Sorry for the rambling history lesson, but that's about what I got from the song.
