Fortunate Son. We have too many of those in positions of power. Song itself has the most snarling guitar riff at beginning for emphasis.

 

Masters of War. The anger is palpable to very last line.

"On The Subway" was the only one on their first album that could be played on the radio.

The only song I ever heard on the radio was "On The Subway".  It probably was the only one they could play.

Wow!  You've got me remembering so many fine songs.  Here are some I can think of:

 

Working Class Hero -- John Lennon

Gimme Some Truth -- John Lennon

Going Up Country -- Canned Heat (this is an "I'm done fighting, I'm leaving" type protest song)

Volunteers -- Jefferson Airplane (& just about everything they did felt like protest.  And Grace Slick was so cool!)

Another Brick in the Wall -- Pink Floyd (hey, teacher, leave those kids alone!)

I Stand for You -- Michael McDonald (An I will stand beside you at your protest song.)

Too Much of Nothing -- Peter, Paul & Mary

Sixteen Tons -- Tennessee Ernie Ford (. . . and whadd'ya get?  Another day older & deeper in debt.)  

The World is a Ghetto -- War (now maybe this is somebody who should be protesting, but is really in a funk about the world he's living in and can't get his mojo working yet.  "Yet" being the operative word.)

Brother, Can You Spare a Dime -- Judy Collins version  (Sweet, sad protest of an American betrayed.)

All Along the Watchtower -- Jimi Hendrix version  ("There must be somewhere out of here, said the Joker to the Thief.  There's just too much confusion.  I can't get no relief."  This is a protest song wrapped up in prophecy.  Spooky.)

Fight the Power -- Isley Brothers

Freedom Words -- Colour Club

Lay Down (Candles in the Rain) -- Melanie

Smiling Faces Sometimes -- the Undisputed Truth (Protesting jerks in general & I just love their name!)

Inner City Blues (Makes Me Wanna Holler) -- Marvin Gaye

If I Had a Hammer -- Trini Lopez

This Land is Your Land -- Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings version

Time Has Come Today -- Chambers Brothers  (I've become "psychedelecized" and am no longer playing along with the rest of society!)

I'm Your Captain -- Grand Funk Railroad (anti-war)

Shapes of Things -- Yardbirds (anti-war)

Radioactive -- Imagine Dragons (no nukes)

Lakota -- Joni Mitchell (protesting treatment of native peoples)

Who's Gonna Stand Up? -- Neil Young  (protesting for mother earth)
