It has been a glorious week for the internet. We were perplexed by the color of a (kind of tacky) dress, we got emotionally invested in a high-speed llama chase, a new season of House of Cards is on Netflix, and, most importantly, the FCC has officially voted in favor of Title II classification for the internet. Let’s raise our glasses to Tom Wheeler with this playlist of tracks by supporters of net neutrality and songs that capture the tenacious spirit of the open internet.

If you’re in a revolutionary mood, I suggest you start with "Try Out Your Voice" by Big D & the Kids Table. Revel along with Deniece Williams’ "Let’s Hear It For the Boy," which I can only imagine was intended to laud Chairman Wheeler. Or maybe just take a cue from the FCC, and get funky with the Menahan Street Band.

  1. Deniece Williams - Let's Hear It for the Boy
  2. OK Go - The One Moment
  3. Junior Senior - Move Your Feet
  4. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - On This Tidal Wave of Your Blood
  5. Ginuwine - Differences
  6. Big D & the Kids Table - Try Out Your Voice
  7. Thao - Bag of Hammers
  8. The New Pornographers - The Laws Have Changed
  9. Menahan Street Band - Montego Sunset
  10. My Morning Jacket - One Big Holiday
  11. ELO - Don’t Bring Me Down
  12. Satchel Grande - Working Title Pt. 2
