Video: Tom Waits ‘Hell Broke Luce’

Tom Waits may be God, or the Devil, depending on which song of his you’re listening to at any given time. It should then come as no surprise that “Hell Broke Luce” is one of the most vitriolic gargles of his career: a viciously anti-war song disguised as a growling heap of wire and nails with shouted vocals.

“I had a good home but I left” and “I left my arm in my coat” might give you just one idea as to what kind of anti-war song this might be. Make no mistake: angry Tom is back.
