I know this topic is a bit old, and the music video is as important as the actual song, so something would be lost on iTunes, but check this out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA0BXsdQ3O8

It's Disturbed's cover of a 1986 Genesis song, "Land of Confusion"

It's a great video, showing multi-national JBTs, the big corperations that keep them in power, and people not taking it anymore.

I liked that video. It was well done, even if the music was too much like the original. Music video subversion could have a place, if there were enough videos of the right sort out there. Unfortunately, I don't know if there will ever be enough of them. Putting up links on blogs and sites might work for some folks. It's definitely worth thinking about.

Kirsten,

What a GREAT freedom idea, to have its own music category. It is thoughts like this, that will promote the cause, without harm to others.

 I cannot download music and have no ipod, although I know what they are. The rest is gibberish to me poor brain. I may get my GrandDaughter to take me shopping for one.

Thanks for sharing and good luck on making/seeing it happen.

One of my all time favorite bands, the Clash, have a ton of material dealing with resistance to tyranny.

Most notably IMO is "Guns of Brixton."

Quote
When they kick out your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

When the law break in
How you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting in death row

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, Guns of Brixton

The money feels good
And your life you like it well
But surely your time will come
As in heaven, as in hell

You see, he feels like Ivan
BORN under the Brixton sun
His game is called survivin'
At the end of the harder they come

You know it means no mercy
They caught him with a gun
No need for the Black Maria
Goodbye to the Brixton sun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh-the guns of Brixton

When they kick out your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
And even shoot us
But oh- the guns of Brixton

Shot down on the pavement
Waiting in death row
His game was survivin'
As in heaven as in hell

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton

(another Paul Kantner song, "We should be together" ) by   Jefferson Airplane:
"We are all outlaws in the eyes of America. In order to survive, we steal, cheat, lie, forge,f***, hide, and deal
We are obscene, lawless, hideous, dangerous. dirty, violent, and young.
And we should be together, aahh, you and me."

 :thumbsup: Jefferson Airplane! Great band! I didn't care much for the later Starship stuff, though even some early Starship wasn't bad.

 :thumbsup: One of the all time greats, and probably Steppenwolf's finest work.

 Hi, this is my first post here. I just found this forum from Claire Wolfe's blog site.

 This thread is a topic personally important to me, as a musician. I am an instrumental composer, and my project is called Spaceplayer. Normally I write Floydish/experimental music, but the recent events in the world have forced their way into my music enough for me to comment in lyrics. So, I hope this isn't too presumptuous for a first post, but I wanted to add my song to the list of protest songs; I saw someone ask earlier about songs specifically about individualism versus the state, so here is the link to my song, "Earth in the Balance," on youtube.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJDGlsnkE60 It's heavy, but then, so are the lyrics. A bit of 2112 and Ayn Rand:

"A meteoric rise to fame/
what's ours to lose was yours to gain/
as you pulled on the reins/
so you could remain/
the king that you think you are/
yeah, you're a supertzar/
you held us so far, you held our mind in chains/
made us wonder who is crazy and who is sane/
our sanction of guilt was the key to our shame/
and our self-sacrifice was the claim to your fame/
but I know who you are and I know you're to blame/
'cause I know the score...and I know you're name..."

 Thanks,
Joe aka Spaceplayer
