The Protest Songs Thread



Don't wanna be an American idiot
Don't want a nation under the new media
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind-fuck America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

Well maybe I'm the ****** America
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda
Now everybody do the propaganda
And sing along to the age of paranoia

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

Don't wanna be an American idiot
One nation controlled by the media
Information Age of hysteria
It's calling out to idiot America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

Re: The Protest Songs Thread



Don't wanna be a Canadian idiot
Don't wanna be some beer swillin' hockey nut
And do I look like some frostbitten hose-head?
I never learned my alphabet from A to Zed

They all live on donuts and moose meat
And they leave the house without packin' heat
Never even bring their guns to the mall
And you know what else is too funny?
Their stupid Monopoly money
Can't take 'em seriously at all

Well maple syrup and snow's what they export
They treat curling just like it's a real sport
They think their silly accent is so cute
Can't understand a thing they're talkin' aboot

Sure they got their national health care
Cheaper meds, low crime rates and clean air
Then again well they got Celine Dion
Eat their weight in Kraft macaroni
And dream of drivin' a Zamboni
All over Saskatchewan

Don't wanna be a Canadian idiot
Won't figure out their temperature in Celsius
See the map, they're hoverin' right over us
Tell you the truth, it makes me kinda nervous

Always hear the same kind of story
Break their nose and they'll just say "sorry"
Tell me what kind of freaks are that polite?
It's gotta mean they're all up to somethin'
So quick, before they see it comin'
Time for a pre-emptive strike!

Re: The Protest Songs Thread



1989 the number another summer, get down
Sound of the funky drummer
Music hittin? your heart, 'cause I know you got soul
Brothers and sisters


Listen if you're missin? why?all
Swingin? while I'm singin?
Givin? whatcha gettin?
Knowin? what I know and


While the black bands sweatin?
And the rhythm rhymes rollin?
Got to give us what we want
Gotta give us what we need


Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
We've got to fight the powers that be


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
We've got to fight the powers that be


As the rhythm designed to bounce
What counts is that the rhymes designed to fill your mind
Now that you've realized the prides arrived
We got to pump the stuff to make us tough


From the heart, it?s a start, a work of art
To revolutionize, make a change, nothin?s strange
People, people, we are the same
No, we're not the same, 'cause we don't know the game


What we need is awareness, we can't get careless
You say what is this?
My beloved, let's get down to business
Mental self defensive fitness


Yo, bum rush the show
You gotta go for what you know
To make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
Lemme hear you
Fight the power


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
Lemme hear you
Fight the power


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
Lemme hear you
Fight the power


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
We've got to fight the powers that be


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
Lemme hear you
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power


Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power


Lemme hear you
Fight the power
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power
We've got to fight the powers that be


Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant shit to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain


Mother fuck him and John Wayne
'Cause I'm black and I'm proud
I'm ready and hyped plus I'm amped
Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps


Sample a look back you look and find
Nothing but rednecks for four hundred years if you check
Don't worry be happy was a number one jam
Damn, if I say it you can slap me right here


Let's get this party started right
Right on, c'mon, what we got to say
Power to the people, no delay
Make everybody see in order to fight the powers that be


Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
We've got to fight the powers that be

Re: The Protest Songs Thread

You guys really think you are "protesting" something and you can stop Trump from becoming the rightfully and legally elected president?

Let me break it to you. Hitllary lost the election. That is the democracy. You can't always get what you want. You need to accept that your corrupt vile candidate lost and will never be the President. Deal with it.

Re: The Protest Songs Thread



Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

What it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

Re: The Protest Songs Thread



I, rebel music
I, rebel music
Why can't we roam this open country?
Oh, why can't we be what we want to be?
We want to be free

Three o'clock roadblock, curfew
And I've got to throw away
Yes, I've got to throw away
Yes, I've got to throw away
My little herb stalk

I, rebel music
I, rebel music

Take my soul and suss me out
Check my life if I am in doubt
Three o'clock, roadblock
And, hey, Mr. Cop, ain't got no
(What you say down there?)
Ain't got no birth certificate on me now

I, rebel music

Re: The Protest Songs Thread



1, 2... 1, 2, 3, 4, Ow!

[Eddie:]

People moving out, people moving in. Why, because of the color of their skin.

Run, run, run but you sure can't hide. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

Vote for me and I'll set you free. Rap on, brother, rap on.

[Dennis:]

Well, the only person talking about love thy brother is the...(preacher.)

And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the...(teacher.)

Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration, Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation.

Ball of confusion. Oh yeah, that's what the world is today. Woo, hey, hey.

[Paul:]


The sale of pills are at an all time high.

Young folks walking round with their heads in the sky.

The cities ablaze in the summer time.

And oh, the beat goes on.

[Dennis:]


Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul.

Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon.

Politicians say more taxes will solve everything.

[Melvin:]


And the band played on.

So, round and around and around we go.

Where the world's headed, nobody knows.

[Instrumental]


Oh, great googalooga, can't you hear me talking to you.

Just a ball of confusion.

Oh yeah, that's what the world is today.

Woo, hey, hey.

[Eddie:]


Fear in the air, tension everywhere.

Unemployment rising fast, the Beatles new record's a gas.

[Dennis:]


And the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation.

[Melvin:]


And the band played on.

Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors,
Mod clothes in demand, population out of hand, suicide, too many bills,

Hippies moving to the hills. People all over the world are shouting, 'End the war.'

[Melvin:]


And the band played on.

[Instrumental]


Great googalooga, can't you hear me talking to you.

Sayin'... ball of confusion.

That's what the world is today, hey, hey.

Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya.

Sayin'... ball of confusion.

That's what the world is today, hey, hey.

Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya.

Sayin'... ball of confusion.

Re: The Protest Songs Thread




What do you want your world to look like?
What do you want it to be?
Do you know that a wall has two sides?
And nobody is free?
Did your mama come from Mexico
Papa come from Palestine
Sneaking all through Syria
Crossing all the border lines

Let other people in
Listen to your women
Stop killing black children
Make America Great Again

Could you imagine a politician
Calling a woman a dog?
Do you wanna stay in the kitchen?
Is that where you belong?
How do you picture the perfect leader
Who do you want him to be
Has he promoted the use of torture and killing families

Let other people in
Listen to your women
Stop killing black children
Make America Great Again
