What are some metal or hard rock songs about jobs? Heres some i found:

Anvil: 9-2-5
Megadeth: Dance in the Rain (kinda)
Styx: Blue Collar Man (ok, thats actually about WANTING a job, but it still counts)
Firehouse: Life in the Real World

There's probably plenty more, any other good ones?

I am the Law is about Judge Dredd, right? Not really about working at all. Same with Sabbath's Iron Man. That's some super villain thing.

And Tailgunner... I guess being a soldier is a job too, but then I guess every other Maiden song about war qualifies, too.

Haha, you know me too well. Very Happy

Now that I think of it the Ramones' "I Wanted Everything" also makes references to having a lame job "bringing the groceries up" for "not much of a salary."
