Working Class Hero by John Lennon – ****

First released: 1970

Though probably not such a big deal now, to hear a Beatle sing “Fuck” not once, but twice in a song was pretty powerful stuff. Now, it’s viewed as Lennon at his most Dylanesque. Originally from "John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band", and later on 1990’s "Lennon", "Lennon Legend" from 1997, and "Working Class Hero" from 2005, 2006’s "Remember" and "The U.S. vs. John Lennon" from 2006. There’s also a demo version from 1998’s "The John Lennon Anthology" and "Wonsaponatime" and 2004’s "Acoustic".
