Top 10 Protest Songs This Century

with 6 comments

Via Stereogum comes news of Under the Radar’s list of the Top 10 Protest Songs so far this century.

I am with Stereogum on this one: it’s nice to see cunts and Cock(ers) get mentioned.

I’m also in the, “Whaaaat? No The Argument?” club.

In other n00s, Boy George was denied a visa to the last best country on Earth because he is on trial for allegedly… imprisoning a male escort?

And my God, Amy Winehouse ‘does not have emphysema’!

What would you guys consider the best, or one of the best, protest songs this age?

  2. I guess we are 😮 It’s a great word, as far as I’m concerned. 😀

    Anyway, as far as protest songs, Low’s entire Drums & Guns album is a great commentary on (the?) war. Cos they do it without beating you over the head with it. Although the first lyrics on the record are “All the soldiers, they’re all gonna die…” so maybe it’s not that subtle.

  3. It is an awesome word!!

    I’ll have to check that out. I’ve been meaning to listen to them for so long. I hate really overtly political and blunt music, but Low has always seemed a little more intellectual than, say, Propagandhi. lolz.

  4. Heh. I dunno if it’s more intellectual exactly (which isn’t to say it isn’t intellectual at all), it’s just that it approaches it from a pretty different angle.

    That isn’t necessarily their best album to start with though. I’d recommend for you to start with either The Great Destroyer (which is their most aggressive… keeping in mind that’s a relative term) or Things We Lost in the Fire (which is their best overall).
