Some information about M.I.A.'s music can be found here. Check out her various albums; she has some powerful music.

BTW, M.I.A. and Zayn Malik are doing a song together.

Here is the poem from Maximo Hudson:

The Wobbly on Progress

there goes my trolly-belle
in nickel-dime serenade
an old steam car

which trundles through its

beveled gears to far

recycled brittle iron
smelted into

reels of steel

while aquatic cable melody
in molten metal cascade
feeds the belly of

a growing nation

from year-to-year
from coast-to-coast
the ghosts of

hard-beset workers
amidst their tattered tailings
begin to cheer

ghosts of –

the International Workers of the World
cannot be stilled - the billy club, bull and the bullet
cannot afflict that which never dies

i thought i saw joe hill today...
