Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros, "Johnny Appleseed". I think this is an amazing song and in terms of lyrical content, is consistent with his work in The Clash. (And the line, "...after you get the honey, don't go killing all the bees" really feels like an allusion to the US occupation of the Middle East). Now, I am not completely well-versed in entire The Mescaleros catalog, but it's definitely a hybrid of "world music" influences and sounds...check it out.
