Here is my favorite protest song: bugger the bankers.  I actually had to look up this word some years ago.  Buggery is illegal in Virginia.  It means to be aggressive sexually from behind (such as to another male, if you get the point)…..  our male goat specializes in this…..
here is the song: https://youtu.be/WSIUf2hD6Io

Nate –

Good point about the lack of a new Dylan, but I think the issue is broader.

Pop music had a golden age roughly 1965-1995. I haven’t heard much since then that’s all that memorable. Pick a genre and it can take me to a specific period. But since 1995 or so, I can hear a song and not know where it came from in the last 25 years. Maybe its a function of my age, but I suspect its more about a change in the music industry that’s killed variety and creativity.

(Of course there are good songs here and there, but I don’t get a sense of any of it as a broad musical movement that evokes a specific time.)

    no songs = a synthetic movement

I think there are no songs because today’s unrest isn’t organic, it is synthetic – generated largely by elite cash – and because of this, there is no “heart” to it from which music will naturally arise.

But those Hong Kong protesters – they have an anthem.

In Hong Kong they are not playing around.  3 million people marched out of a total population of 7 million people.

I guess I’m digressing from the tone of this evening’s symposium.

So here’s my favorite:

So Long Mom (I’m off to Drop the Bomb)

    Hard Rain

It’s been said that Hard Rain was written in response to the Cuban Missile Crisis.
