- Jun 6, 2004Demented Youth do a punk/noise song called "Assassination Attempt" on the Alternative Tentacles compilation Not So Quiet on the Western Front. It is a hilarious song that starts out with someone in the band yelling "Hey Mr President!" and then it is followed by a little over minute of total mayhem and noise.

Great list, Carl. Here are a few more I found at:
http://www.horriblescreechingnoise.com/reagan.html (with sound clips)
Old Mother Reagan (Violent Femmes)
Ballad of Ronald Reagan (Austin Lounge Lizards)
Two Tribes (Frankie Goes to Hollywood)
Money$ Too Tight (To Mention) (Simply Red) -- about Reagan??
If Reagan Played Disco (The Minutemen)
Rapmaster Ronnie (Reathel Bean & The DBC)
Talking Ronald Reagan Blues (Loudon Wainwright III)
(We Begin Bombing in) 5 Minutes (Bonzo Goes to Washington)
There's a discussion on a local music community msg board about Reagan's
death and it cracks me up how many people are chastising me for not
respecting the death of a great man. I'm getting preached to by people
who were born the year that bastard took office.

one of my all-time favorites is Gil Scott-Heron's "Re-Ron." I used to
love playing that leading up to and even after the 1984 election during
my college radio days.
