Any songs that features the fall of the American Republic and the Rise of the Police State?

With our freedoms under assault and the ideas of the Founding Fathers going down the trash isn't there a song that tells about the fall of the Republic?

I mean we need something that expresses our sadness about the slow destruction of our nation. With our Freedoms eroding bit by bit it won't be long before life as we know it has changed forever.

If not someone who is a Musician in ATS should make a song expressing our sadness of America going down the drain.

The Dead Kennedys were preaching it before Reagan was elected.
Oh, to be a jaded youth again...just pick almost any track by them.

One from the 60's we use to sing that comes to mind. It was sung protesting war. But I think it still applies.

There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
We better stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, now, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down[

Aus-Rotten were amazing and truly stood for the music. It's a shame their logo has been printed on countless backpatches and shirts. Dave Trenga has a powerful voice too. Great delivery:



Personally I don't like Taina's voice but the music was good:



CC point out the rot that permeates American society (and is unmercifully glossed over):



Dropdead's fast and to the point. No holds barred, they tell it like it is.



Punk is not in the stores. Jello screamed against the big bad government and Tipper all while juggling bags of money as he unicycled to the banks. I don't trust Eric Boucher as far as I can throw him. Same with Tim Armstrong, Lars Frederiksen, Mike Virus, Fat Mike ,etc.

Ok... I'm feeling inspired, but I have a bad habit of not finishing songs.
Anyone want to collaborate with me? I've Never written with anyone before.



I'm playing barre chords- it's got a dark, slightly angsty sound so far, but I have a feeling it's going to transition into something a bit rebellious and angry.

Most bands/artists I thought of have already been mentioned, some I was not aware of - thank you guys.
I like this one from Ryan Harvey ...


On the hip hop side there is Immortal Technique naturally.
Here is Kenny Arkana, she is French, but it sill applies


I always liked this song by Hilltop Hoods

Great start....here's some lyrics to think about....

"Biochips and DNA
Whatever happened
To the American Way?

Mayberry's gone
And so are our rights.
Where are the ones
Who'll stand up and fight?

Chorus
Fight for our sanity
Fight for our life
Fight to remember
We were once free

We all have a voice
And freedom of choice"

That's all I got lol

Hmmmm here's one song that may give you ideas. It's from a game that features an alternate scenario when George Washington decided to Crown himself King and ruled America under the heels of Tyranny.

The 60's is loaded with anti-establishment/counterculture/protest/disgruntled type of songs.

Bob Dylan's "Chimes of Freedom" is about the mistreatment of the poorer classes of people, the development of the police state, and how the elites have taken over.



... Ironically enough, that was the song that Bill Clinton chose to be played at his inauguration.

Dylan was and still is a tool of TPTB. As entertainers they're told what to sing, what to look like, how to act. His entire attitude of rebellion and peace was entirely fabricated. He served his part. Got people to think against the system while buying into a fake counterculture made by the system. We're still in a hole, deeper now than in the 60s and most of the hippies were reabsorbed into the hand that fed their so called awakening.

If it is mainstream it is not rebellion.

They don't want us to wake up, they want us to rebel against the man so they can replace the current system with the next phase.

The album Year Zero by Nine Inch Nails was a story of the future in 2022 ruled by a religious police state in America as a type of warning of what things could become if they continued the way they had been heading at the time it was written and recorded.
