Luddites beware!
For my first BitchTapes as the resident New Media Intern, it seemed only appropriate that my to compile some of my favorite songs about just that: media and technology! Radio, video, video killing the radio star, it's all here... not to mention Neil Young with with a vocoder! 

1. Roberto Cacciapaglia- Media

2. The Slits- FM

3. The Buggles- Video Killed the Radio Star

4. DAT Politics- V.I.D.E.O. Tape

5. Bruce Haack- Electric to me Turn

6. Depeche Mode- Dreaming of Me

7. Paul Simon- Kodachrome

8. Neil Young- Computer Cowboy (Syschrusher)

9. Le Tigre- Get Off the Internet

10. Delta 5- Circuit 


Love what you're reading here? Then you'll love Bitch magazine. The reviews are snappy, the analysis in-depth, the writers are downright sharp, and the illustrations so often belong in a frame that you'll have to move over other artwork.

If you don't have a subscription to our award-winning 80-page quarterly magazine, it's definitely time to start one.
