Pigs (Lullabye Remix)
The infectious first track off the debut of Cypress Hill, Pigs was ripe for reworking as a Woody Guthrie documentary song, or even an old Irish sea chanty sung by The Almanac Singers, telling the truth of a power structure seen clearly by the narrator. To imagine the cutting lyrics of B-Real as a lullabye might've felt like a stretch, but somehow, the ugly truth might just help you drift off to sleep.
