Oil Music

I don't know really what to say about this.

Åge Sten Nilsen is the singer and he apparently is a somewhat popular rocker in Norway. Statoil is, of course, the state oil company of Norway. (Hat tip to Foreign Policy.)

So are there other rock songs with oil as their subject? I only know one.

"North Sea Oil" is a very clever song by Jethro Tull with lyrics that sort of encapsulate the hopes and fears of the U.K. following the discovery of oil in the North Sea. Of course, any true Tull fan can tell you that they are lip-synching here! Kind of bogus if you ask me.
