Most associate the 60's with protests as protests go. In your personal opinion what other tunes after the Vietnam War merit notice ?

my personal favorite is this...

Like the lyrics.




Go with the flow

Ya just let it ride

We don't care if ya live or die

We suck of the companies
We suck like a whore

If we need oil, we just suck some more

We define success

And we don't sin

Got the nation in debt

About four trilion

Infrastructure is wasted

And we're deaf to the crowd

Nothin' left for the children

It's ok, we won't be around



Welcome to the party

The republican party

Ya havin' fun at the party

The republican party

We're havin' a party, right now



We stack the courts

And we tax the poor

Got Johnny Lunchbox

To fight our wars

Tax him to his knees

And make him love the flag

We get corporate freedom

He gets a body bag

We're makin' a killin'

You know we kill so well

Cut the country to pieces

And we're havin' a sale

We take it all

Just like ya knew we would

Hell we even got Nixon

Lookin' pretty good


Welcome to the party

The republican party

Ya havin' fun at the party

The republican party

We're havin' a party, right now

I cried when they shot Medgar Evers
E C#m
Tears ran down my spine
E A E
I cried when they shot Mr. Kennedy
F#7 B7
As though I'd lost a father of mine
E A E
But Malcolm X got what was coming
G#m A
He got what he asked for this time
E C#m A B7 E
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

I go to civil rights rallies
And I put down the old D.A.R.
I love Harry and Sidney and Sammy
I hope every colored boy becomes a star
But don't talk about revolution
That's going a little bit too far
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

I cheered when Humphrey was chosen
My faith in the system restored
I'm glad the commies were thrown out
Of the A.F.L. C.I.O. board
I love Puerto Ricans and Negros
As long as they don't move next door
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

The people of old Mississippi
Should all hang their heads in shame
I can't understand how their minds work
What's the matter don't they watch Les Crane?
But if you ask me to bus my children
I hope the cops take down your name
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

I read New Republic and Nation
I've learned to take every view
You know, I've memorized Lerner and Golden
I feel like I'm almost a Jew
But when it comes to times like korea
There's no one more red, white and blue
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

I vote for the democtratic party
They want the U.N. to be strong
I go to all the Pete Seeger concerts
He sure gets me singing those songs
I'll send all the money you ask for
But don't ask me to come on along
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

Once I was young and impulsive
I wore every conceivable pin
Even went to the socialist meetings
Learned all the old union hymns
But I've grown older and wiser
And that's why I'm turning you in
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

so many songs protesting social injustice.
don't forget this one:

Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me.

In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
Is this land made for you and me?

I love Phil Ochs, but my hands down favorite is by Country Joe and the fish:

Too bad they did not have the cheer that comes first.

Greatest Protest song ever written and a awesome video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk3sURDS4IA

(Monster)
Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought our a homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The blue and grey they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has it's share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

(Suicide)
The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Our cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand
We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner
We can't pay the cost
'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watching

(America)
America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

Cheney's toy by James McMurtry

Another unknown soldier
Another lesson learned
Kick the gas can over
Strike a match get back and watch that sucker burn

Keep smiling for the camera
Keep waving for the crowd
Don't let up for an instant
Stay the course and make your mama proud

You're the man
Show'em what your made of
You're no longer daddy's boy
You're the man
That they're all afraid of
But you're only Cheney's toy

Another unknown soldier
Who's seen it all before
All in the name of Jesus
Behind the razor wire and shackled to the floor

Just keep smiling at the cameras
And keep that twinkle in your eye
We don't need to know the answers
Long as we're safe
Just hit your marks and say your lines

You're the man
Show'em what your made of
You're no longer daddy's boy
Take a stand
Give 'em what they paid for
But you're only Cheney's toy

They'll take a fork and turn you over
While the fat lady sings
One more pin on one more shoulder
Is all the future brings
For another unknown soldier
Who don't know his own name
And he won't get any older
And he can't see for the shrapnel in his brain

You're the man
Show'em what your made of
You're no longer daddy's boy
Take a stand
Give 'em what they paid for
But you're only Cheney's toy

You're the man
Show'em what your made of
You're no longer daddy's boy
Ain't you grand
When the guns are blazin'
Bring 'em on
You're Cheney's toy

Ain't you grand
When your guns are blazin'
Bring 'em on
You're Cheney's toy
Bring 'em on
Bring 'em on
You're Cheney's toy
Bring 'em on
You're Cheney's toy

Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build the big bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks

You that never done nothiní
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like itís your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly

Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain

You fasten the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you set back and watch
When the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion
As young peopleís blood
Flows out of their bodies
And is buried in the mud

Youíve thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ainít worth the blood
That runs in your veins

How much do I know
To talk out of turn
You might say that Iím young
You might say Iím unlearned
But thereís one thing I know
Though Iím younger than you
Even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do

Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul

And I hope that you die
And your deathíll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And Iíll watch while youíre lowered
Down to your deathbed
And Iíll stand oíer your grave
íTil Iím sure that youíre dead

I noticed but when I opened your link and realized it was post-Vietnam I guess I ignored ... sorry! Vietnam War started in the 50's ... did you want pre-1955 protest songs? (there are 2 on my list )

"War" by Edwin Starr.

War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothin'. Say it again.

Poignant enough to land on a "post-9/11 lyrically questionable" Clear Channel list 30 years later.

Said prior, meant subsequent, edited to after.

Almost forgot the Clash, whose songs were often protest songs. Washington Bullets:
