Wow! There are so many great ones, which isn't great because it means there has been so much to protest. However, the strongest, most intense songs I can think of are 'We Shall Overcome', an anthem as true today as when it was first written. The other is 'Strange Fruit' which is so strong, with perhaps the most powerful lyrics ever written.  What a shame that our country has spawned so many songs of protest.  Certainly the rap songs of the 1980s, and beyond, and other songs written by young artists continue to let the world know that the injustice of society shall not be accepted, will not be taken, without protest.

The only stipulation here is that the song should be commentary,  controversial, expressing a rebellious, protesting "frame of mind"; generally, or speciffically, about society, culture, economics, wealth, poverty, politics, war, peace, relationships, etc, etc, etc.

 

How about some songs which, when you heard them, you thought, "Yeh, those lyrics tell it like it is!" or maybe you were offended by the controversial lyrics.

 

Your song selection may be from any time period in history and about any topic you choose, old songs and new songs.

 

Please be free to post protest & rebellion songs which either you agreed with or which "honked" you off.

 

Here is an opportunity to "Get it off your chest!" Go ahead and briefly include memorable lyrics of the song if you like [ if you remember :-) ]

 

To begin.....here's a protest song:     Subterranean Homesick Blues     Bob Dylan
