IMO the last effective organizing outside of politics/govt over social issues was before 1980. The civil rights, anti-war, and environmental movements pushed govt into action from the outside. Songs carried the message.

The last great movement of social issues has been going on since 1980, but these issues grew from within religious groups which had become politicized by aligning with one particular political party. While the earlier movements brought citizens together to push whoever held power, the later movement became power and refused to cross party lines. No music to bring diverse groups together.
