Friday Mixtape: Riot Songs 

By: Josh Gross

This issue of the Source publishes on July 23, a day in history that marks one of the biggest riots/uprisings in American history. The 12th Street Riots in Detroit. After police raided an underground bar called The Blind Pig, the confrontation escalated, with then-Governor Romney (Mitt's dad) and President Johnson sending in federal troops. The result was 43 dead, 1,189 injured, more than 7,200 arrests, and more than 2,000 buildings destroyed. Only the New York City riots during the Civil War and the L.A. riots in the 1990s were bigger.

Lest we forget, here's a Detroit Riot-themed Mixtape, with songs from The MC5, Night Riots, Eliot Smith, Dale Earndhart Jr. Jr., Eminem, The Detroit Cobras, and more. All are songs or bands about Detroit, riots, or both.
