    Default Best "political" songs ever

    I'm working on an iPod playlist of my favourite quasi-political or protest songs, I've not put any RATM on the list yet surprisingly and I'm not going to include the ubiquitous Chumbawumba at this point, I am putting Zombi by The Cranberries on there, it speaks very loudly and clearly to me on a number of levels but mainly on a personal one about someone I knew who was murdered towards the end of the shooting war here in Northern Ireland. That said I just think of it as a general anti-war song. Infact I think it's broader than it, people become zombis too easy, possessed by images or ideas which are in their heads, which put them on auto-pilot or which arent a true picture or reflection of reality at all.

    Anyone any ideas?

    YouTube - Woody Guthrie- This Land Is Your Land

    Classic political folk song.

    YouTube - Rage Against the Machine - Down Rodeo

    The best Rage song IMO. They are definitely one of the few [hard] rock bands that have been able to pull off political rock and make it popular.

    There are some more I like but I can't remember them right now.


    Woody Guthrie was a communist. And Rage is definitely left-of-center. Have there been any cool conservative political artists? I know conservatism and art don't necessarily go hand in hand.

    I dont know if there have been AJB but conservatives are pretty good at co-opting the left song canon, RATM probably got more air time on right wing talk radio than anyplace else were they aired it as a general protest against apathy and didnt think too hard about the lyrics.
