There were many awful ones but Rufus Wainwright's '11/11' seemed among the most heartfelt and dignified.
The video is even better than the song...
"Energy God, the whole plane's mash up, shizzle"
this one was written on the night of the attacks.
The Clarks - Hey You - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xu2_TUNz8OY&feature=related
written in October 2001, subtitled September song
"noseholes caked in black cocaine"
"i'm the only one left alive"
i also read that the guitar "riff" is as deconstructed take on Jailhouse Rock. Hmm, interesting
and the 'pow pow' whisper is meant to imitate the riff-and-drumbeat of the Jailhouse Rock intro.

All the stores have long since shut
Broken windows boarded up
Never had the heart to tear it down
To tear it down
Everything is laid out wide
And I've got nothing left but time
To think that such a day would once terrify
I can't believe it now
Time gives all that it takes
Time leaves nothing in its wake
And I am ready for what comes after
For what comes after
All the clouds have passed away
And I can only see the light of day
I never thought such clarity
would come my way (ch)
Still waiting for the morning to call my name
Still waiting for the light on the windowpane
Still waiting for the sun
But it never comes
It's impossible to forget
Until the day that there's finally nothing left
But where nothing lies, anything can rise
And be torn down

No one has mentioned John Vanderslice?
He devoted a fair chunk of his career to it and he really is a fantastic artist, right?
In fact, yankee hotel foxtrot is fairly 9/11 throughout
'Tall buildings shake, voices escape singing sad sad songs' etc
Gonna listen to it now.
911 is a joke
