Those crazy kids over at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals keep coming up with “amazing” schemes to tickle one’s fancy. Whether it’s developing sartorial creativity in designing bloody hunter Halloween costumes or expanding culinary genius by insisting the White House use vegan Easter egg candy at the annual Easter egg roll, their visionary juices are seemingly endless.
And now – the latest gimmick from PETA is a Spotify channel with multiple playlists for the animal rights anarchist. The PETA website boasts, “WE’VE CURATED SOUNDTRACKS FOR UPROOTING ANIMAL OPPRESSION.”
“From classics like ‘Meat Is Murder’ by The Smiths, included in ‘AR Songs You’ll Love,’ to more obscure reggae jams like ‘Health Is Wealth’ by Macka B, featured in ‘Veggies Have ROOTS,’ our playlists transcend cultures and genres. No matter your musical taste, there’s something to inspire the activist in you,” the website reads.
But wait – there’s more. Sounding like an old television commercial hawking record albums for the latest top 50 songs, PETA’s website goes on to describe the playlists available to bring out your inner animal:
“Find out what the PETA team listens to in the Bob Barker Building—our West Coast headquarters in Los Angeles—by following the ‘What We’re Listening To’ playlist. Get hyped for a run or workout with up-tempo animal rights–themed music featured in our ‘PETA Pack’ playlist. Or listen to classic songs from icons such as Moby and Bryan Adams in our ‘Animal Rights Legends’ playlist. We’ve also gathered the best from the vegan punk scene in ‘PETA ♥ Punk.’”
PETA concludes the commercial with its time-worn diatribe ascribing human emotions and characteristics to animals, and attacking “human supremacy” for taking everything away from “these individuals.”
According to PETA, “If there’s one thing hip-hop heads, punks, and pop enthusiasts can agree on, it’s that animals everywhere need us to be loud and taking action. Animals value their lives just as much as we value ours. They have loved ones they want to protect, and they do their best to live free from torment and pain. But in circuses, roadside zoos, and laboratories and on farms, human supremacy has taken away everything important from these conscious, feeling individuals.”
