Soundcloud Surfing is a weekly feature that is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of focusing on the brand new music, we dig into the Soundcloud archives and pull out some gems. Enjoy, and check out previous editions here.

It’s March 1 today, and that means one thing and one thing only. It’s National Pig Day.


Happy National Pig Day!

So, in celebration, this week’s Soundcloud Surfing looks at songs about the police, the po po, the fuzz, the cops, the five-oh, the babylon, the jakes, the black and white, the brass, the bacon, the PIGS. Enjoy.

Lil Wayne is one of the few rappers to make a positive song about the cops…

A sympathetic portrayal of a kind cop, and a really heartbreaking song.

Free Boosie!

The cops quickly catch up with the song’s (anti)hero in this Cash classic.

KRS-One. Classic. Not sure why the Soundcloud user who uploaded this has a picture of Rick Ross though.

Everyone knows N.W.A.’s original, so here’s a live version of Rage Against The Machine’s cover of “F*ck The Police.”

A surprisingly brilliant remix of a subtly menacing Springsteen classic.
