Friday Tune: Megadeth, ‘Foreclosure of a Dream’

Foreclosure of a Dream deals with economic concerns and social inequality. According to music critic Eduardo Rivaldivia, ‘perhaps no other Megadeth song in history deals as directly and soberly’ with these issues. The song sampled then-U.S. President George H. W. Bush’s infamous ‘Read my lips’ speech, making a statement about taxation endangering the ‘American Dream.’ Billboard praised the track, along with Symphony of Destruction, for being ‘socially conscious’ and described them as ‘powerful statements for hard rockers.'” (Wikipedia)
