Stones Hit Out At Neo-Cons

August 10, 2005

NEW YORK: A new Rolling Stones' song titled Sweet Neo Con appears to take a swipe at so-called US neo-conservatives, many of whom are well-known supporters of US President George W. Bush.

An excerpt from the song was published by Newsweek magazine this week, the magazine describing the Stones' hard-hitting lyrics as "political".

US Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice are three well-known members of Bush's inner circle considered by political analysts to be leading lights of the neo-conservative movement.

"You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite
You call yourself a patriot, well I think you're full of s..t," the song says, according to Newsweek.

Stones' frontman Sir Mick Jagger told Newsweek with a laugh: "It is direct."

Jagger also took a dig at fellow band member Keith Richards, who lives in the United States.

"Keith said, 'It's not really metaphorical'. I think he's a bit worried because he lives in the US," Jagger reportedly joked.

The song is being released on the Stones' new album, A Bigger Bang which is due out in early September.
