Husker Du, "Newest Industry," from Zen Arcade (1984)
Been through mass destruction once,
but once was not enough.
Said we want a second chance
and all they say is "Tough."
A world where science went too far,
there's no way to survive.
Why can't we get this thing straightened out,
I want to stay alive.
They burned and bombed the East and North,
and there's no place left to go.
The Sun Belt's overcrowded,
so let's annex Mexico.
The Peso's only worth a dime,
but they've got all that land.
No need for civil war,
we know they'll understand, right?
Is that how you like it?
Factories left unattended,
crumbling to the ground.
We tried to keep them running,
but there's no more oil around.
We used it all to fight a war
that neither side could win.
Vietnam is little league
compared to where we've been.
Now we live in caves and huts
and we don't have pay TV.
And everyone is signing up
for the newest industry.
Standard Oil goes solar power,
all try to make a buck.
So I'll sit and smoke cigarettes
and babble "What the F__k?"

This is one of the hardest 11a Slab Climbs I have ever done. And I have climbed a lot of slab! I would put this around a 11b/c. The crux is at the 4th bolt.
The PG rating is for the top part of the climb, but its easy 5.8 slab climbing with "iffy" gear for 15 feet.
