    Good thread.

    Fight the Power by Public Enemy is a great one.

    I also like London Calling by the Clash.

    Got to think here, there are a lot.

    Oh, god, how could I have forgotten "TESTIFY" by Rage Against the Machine. Probably my favorite of all time--listen to the words, still true today.

    "Won't Get Fooled Again" by the Who

    Favorite lyric: Meet the new boss--same as the old boss.

    "Revolution" by the Beatles

    Favorite lyric: If you want money for people with minds that hate, all I can tell you is brother you'll have to wait.

    "Killing in the Name" by Rage Against the Machine

    Favorite lyric: Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!

    See, I feel like Won't get fooled again is actually an ANTI revolution song because the whole song just talks about everytime things change and new power takes control, it just reverts back to the way it was. Favorite lyric "The banners, they all fly in the next war."

    But, not to diminish you pick, it is a GREAT SONG.

    That's true, but the chorus, "Won't Get Fooled Again," is an acknowledgment of that. They recognize that most change is bogus, but this time, they're not buying it.

    Another great one: Sunshine (Go Away Today) by Jonathan Edwards.

    Favorite lyric: He can't even run his own life, I'll be damned if he'll run mine!
