Hadda Be Playing on the Jukebox

"Hadda be Playin' on the Jukebox" is a poem written by Allen Ginsberg in 1975. It has been performed live, with accompanying music, by the band Rage Against the Machine, appearing on their album Live & Rare.

The poem frames various events of the 1960s and 1970s, including the Kennedy assassination and the Kent State massacre, as part of a larger trend. Ginsberg refers to the Cold War as "gang wars across oceans", and calls capitalism a "vortex of this rage" and a competition "man to man."
