IMO there is no way todays 'artists' are playing any part in 'waking' anyone up. First of all, they buy the lyrics most of the time. So the lyrics are not those of the singer/band, but belong to the minds of the writers. Today's music is geared toward the video crowd, and requires a visual story to back up the music/words. How it is percieved is basically through the video, not the music itself.
If you only listen to the words and not watch a matching video you might think you are understanding something they are singing about, but, most likely they are only singing something that someone else wrote. No passion in that. Music today is so manufactured, it has really suffered due to the commercialism of the entire music industry. It isn't about the music anymore. It is about selling tickets and videos for your ipod.
