Working In The Coal Mine: Lee Dorsey

 

Sixteen Tons: Tennessee Ernie Ford

 

Strictly speaking, perhaps neither song is a protest song or a song of rebellion but more of a lament for the harsh, dangerous and low-paying job of a coal miner, at least at the time the songs were written. In their own way, each song drew attention to those awful working conditions.

Mr. Businessman: Ray Stevens (a scathing indictment of what he sees as the worst of corporate America; the song was probably submitted long ago, but I’m too lazy to pore over the history of this topic).

@ripvanwinkle96  I had no idea Limp Bizkit did "Behind Blue Eyes". I remember the original, by the Who, very well.
