Today's Cool Kids jam is a fun song about a not so fun activity: working in a coal mine. Even though coal has been a major energy source here in Western Pennsylvania, it still has a dark and sooty past. Children used to work in the mines and suffered many major injuries and deformities as a result.
Luckily, there are now regulations in check to keep kids from working in coal mines. These days, kids think cleaning their rooms is the worst think that could happen to them. Imagine what would happen if they worked in a coal mine for one day! They'd never complain about making the bed again. Even if they won't cooperate, at least we can be glad they're safe.
Devo provides the room cleaning tune for the day. "Workin' In A Coal Mine" is the name of the song, and it's great to hear such a funky song while working. Enjoy!
