At 20 seconds, I think it's safe to say that "John Fitzgerald Kennedy" is the shortest song ever recorded about the JFK assassination. Despite the song's brevity, however, Le Rug establish a motive (opposition to Kennedy's ambition to pass civil rights legislation) and identify the conspirators (the CIA and Lyndon Johnson) in the assassination plot. For their 2009 album Nuke Whales, Le Rug recorded a song about every U.S. president. Since JFK's presidency ended violently so early in his administration, songwriter Ray Weiss wanted to make the JFK track "the most short and furious song on the record."

Bullet in your brain
Civil rights legislation
Never made it your way
The CIA or LBJ
Have paved the way
For you to die this way
Dallas, Texas
Dallas, Texas
