After John Lennon left The Beatles, his first album came out in 1970 and was titled “John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.”
‘Working Class Hero” was a track on that album.
According to John Lennon, he says the song is about someone moving up from the working class into a middle class lifestyle.
There aren’t many instruments on the song either. It’s just John and an acoustic guitar.
If you think that you’ve heard this song by other artists than just Lennon, you’re right! Both Green Day and Ozzy Osbourne have done covers of the song.
Here’s hoping that you’re work week moves along quickly!
