(RNN) – Tired of the government shutdown and all the childish posturing on national TV between grown-ups in nice suits who get paid to run the government?

Then we have something sure to turn your frown upside down.

Three men who are fed up with the situation chose to protest in the best way possible – with guitars.

It's never too early to begin teaching children valuable life lessons.

That is all.
