Pearl Jam ~ 'Yellow Ledbetter' ~ (1992)
There are many different interpretations of this song. A common theory is that it's about a boy receiving a letter and finding that his brother had died overseas in the Gulf war. The boy then takes a walk.. waves at a couple who have the flag hanging on their front porch..but they don't wave back. In the official bootleg release in 2003, Vedder sings "I'd like to wish this war away,I tried, but it just don't happen that way. And my brother, they sent him off to fight for a flag..."...box or bag...

Rush ~ 'Red Sector A' ~ Album: 'Grace Under Pressure' (1984)
A song written by Neal Peart about the Nazi concentration camps. It also has to do with Singer/Bassist Geddy Lee's remembrance of his mother's accounts of the Holocaust, which she survived. She was liberated from Bergin-Belson in 1945. His father was liberated a few weeks after his mother,from Dachau concentration camp.
While the Nazi camps of WW2 were his primary lyrical motivation, Peart decided to abstract the lyrics so as to apply the experiences of atrocity of any similar prison camp scenario.
It's a song about being on the brink and having the courage and strength to survive.


Song is set to a video of clips from the movie 'Band of Brothers'.
