Where There’s a Whip, There’s a Way

Lyrics and song background from Tolkien Gateway

Murky Memories: I’ve seen this movie four times, and the only part I remember with any clarity is this song.

It always seemed to be me this song should’ve been parodied and made relevant to other instances of working in an oppressive situation.  But maybe it’s just too geek-ish to have enough of a recognition factor.

That said, there have been numerous covers of the song by hard core bands.  Why is it that hard core rock embraces geek-dom?  What’s the bridge that connects them?
