This is the label I have pasted inside the soundhole
of my new Martin guitar, purchased and put into use
just after the 9-11-01 attack on New York.
(It's a 00C-15AE for you who care about guitars.)

Woody Guthrie played a guitar during
WWII with the slogan "This machine kills fascists"
painted on it.

The first song my new guitar played onstage
was Woody's "This Land Is Your Land."

The next was "We Shall Overcome"

Benefit Concert For New York Firefighters, Kalamazoo, MI 9-22-2001
