The Dead Kennedys wrote and recorded some of the best protest songs.

www.youtube.com...

Their revised lyrics for "I Fought the Law":

The law don't mean s**t if you've got the right friends
That's how this country's run
You can get away with murder if you've got a badge
I fought the law and I won
I fought the law and I won

If you are on this site, there is no reason you should not listen to punk rock. Why do you think they get such a bad rap? Alot of them are trying to get the truth out there.

if you want current protest music then check out molotov solution. www.myspace.com...
that is their site. they sing about and mention everything from NWO to the destruction of our freedoms and everything in between like operation paperclip and goverment programs to control the media. they are also into the 911 truth movement. the music might be a turn off for a lot of people but read the lyrics before you judge the music. www.metal-archives.com... that site has all their lyrics.
here is one of their song lyrics.

"Corporatocracy"

1040 forms and fiat currency share much in common,
like absolute illegitimacy and paper construction.
no income-tax law exists, nor does tangible value in a dollar,
but every day someone goes to prison over one or the other.

A 1913 scheme with aim to reach neo-feudalism
by stripping Congress of the Constitutional power they were given
would guarantee unpayable debt, generations born into a prison
the death of the nation began with the birth of the federal reserve system.

Incremental erosion of sovereignty to ensure a smooth transition into totalitarian global governance.

Asses and elephants are equally malevolent when
bought and paid for by big business and bankers, (democracy is a myth)
and voting becomes seemingly irrelevant when
electronic machines have supplanted paper. (democracy is a myth)

National sovereignty surrendered to multi-national corporations,
Law enforcement to infrastructure undergoing total privatization,
Consolidation of power progressing under globalization,
International banks, corporations and government working together...

Against the rest of us,
the rest of the population,
Because when you print the money,
Power becomes your only aspiration.

I pledge eternal war
with those obsessed with control.
Bilderberg to CFR,
We will crush you all.

Anybody still like Thrashing, Crushing, Groovy, Heavy Metal?

I do, check out unsigned band* EndangeredFeces from California, song called Sabbatical:

...Don't give up your freedom for the safety they provide from the threat they create to bring you into stride...
...The war for the last of the earths' life blood is concealed in the myth of the Grand Deception...


* three old stoners

I can't believe no one has mentioned U2's when the saints come marching in. It was all about the terrible response of the government after Katrina

let me show you something...

NOFX - The War On Errorism

Lard - Last Temptation of Reid


Shadows Fall- "Burning The Lives"

Soon a darkened Pyramid will rise. Their will be no escaping from the all seeing eye.
Lost In Blindness. Serving shielded masters still unknown. Chaos is their goal.
Corrupt you heart and soul.
The air is getting thin. Will you give in? All the voices of the lost and forgotten.
Still lay in their graves they've been silenced for their thoughts.
Lost in blindness.
This history is written in their blood. Chaos is their goal. Corrupt you heart and soul.
The air is getting thin. Will you give in? Burning the lives and the pride of innocents.
Tearing down all that we built!








Shadows Fall - Another Hero Lost

I'd never leave you.
But fate has come to silence me.
Darkness is all I see.
I can not reach you.
And soon the earth will cover me.
It's become so hard to breathe.

Darkness is all that I see. Forever is waiting.
The final steps you're taking.
Will soon be buried in the sand. All the battles. They say we won.
They leave another thousand lives undone.
Another thousand lives undone. Forever is waiting. The final steps your taking.
Will soon be buried in the sand.
You're gone, But not forgot. Another hero lost. The sorrow builds with every passing.
All the lessons that you taught.
And all the light you brought. Lives on in the eyes of your son.





E-Town Concrete "Sick World"

it's a sick sick world.
die laughing, die w/ passion. die fast and go out blasting.
when the only thing that matters is GI Joes, this world is
less complex i suppose. if time froze at the age of innocence,
life at it's purest form. the simplest. recognize change starts
from within. remember before we started to sin? and kids
were allowed to be kids? where's the innocence?
die laughing, die w/ passion. die fast and go out blasting.
# the world. keep blasting.
they say there's something wrong with us. maybe we lost
touch, maybe we #ed up. but i don't think there's
something wrong with us, i think you lost touch. i think
you #ed up. point the finger at your self this time.
do we love our children or neglect them? when they speak
do you listen? do you pay attention? pay attention. kids are
starving for attention. for so long. ask yourself, where did
we go wrong?
call me insane. the internet has corrupted my brain.
desensitized by video games. pulling me in. making me sin.
recognize change starts from within.
it's a sick sick world.

Where are all the protest songs? They went underground with the rest of the counterculture.

You need to hang around some local festivals and start digging the scene again.

How about this?

Adam Freeland - We want your soul



Its social commentary on the state of Western Life, sarcasm and a wake up call in 5 minutes. And you can dance to it.

Because your out of touch
There are thousands of protest songs, i would guess there is more now then ever before. Radio doesnt play them because its controlled by the same people who control the msm.

Radio is dying and this is one of the reasons

The 2007 release The Blackening by Machine Head, is chock full of protest against the current regime, war, oil profiteering, and mainstream religion. It was nominated for a grammy in 2007 as well.

You can sample the tracks here

You can view the lyrics here.

This cd gets me wanting to protest against the establishment.

Also these lyrics from "Trivium - Detonation" paint a picture of how we will destroy ourselves:

That's the sound of humanity melting away
Say goodbye it's the end of days
Fire rains down on the American dream
Watch all you love see them scream

Each will dig their own graves
And bury themselves in life's failures

It's our bombs we've masterminded lighting the skies
Hideous misfires, many die
Those who survive soon will suffocate
By the poisons we create

Each will dig their own graves
And bury themselves in life's failures

And now the ground we called a home
Is but a barren wasteland
The only sound drowning your cries
Is the detonation

Why? I think this thread is sufficient for ATS. The protest music back in the 60's was super popular at the time and hundreds of thousands of people were fed up with the govt. There IS a conspiracy against music that makes people want to rise up agaisnt the establishment.

Consider this, all the music that is considered to be "popular music" these days are hand picked by organisations to be the current trends and fads so that the population will be mezmerised and easily controllable. They make massive profits off of it and many other spin off industries. All the while they make sure that the music doesnt give the populace any ideas other than to spend more money so they can be like their favorite stars.


Most music that has messages of protest IS NOT by any means considered popular and usually relies on cult followings to survive. For example metal and punk are the current leaders of protest music and these days is largely unpopular. Go to a party and play a metal CD i am willing to bet it will get turned off and made fun of. I get called all sorts of stuff for listening to metal and funny looks from other people when i play it in my car while driving. People think its funny because the radio doesnt play it and bcause the clubs dont play it. They say stuff like "what is this crap?"

The government learned from the 60s that music is a powerful tool and this is why the elite control the music industry now. Most new pop music is unorigional, uninspiring, dull, repetitive and is only designed to make a quick buck off of you. Why is it that people still listen to the classics from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, but noone seems to care about new music once it is 3 months old? Its disposable.

Move on to the next style please, buy some more crap, dont get any ideas about your government.
