Every revolution has a sound track. This one is no different.
These are my most favorite political revolution songs. So, crank up the volume on your computer’s speakers and rock out to these great old classics.
Tom Petty & Friends: Won’t Back Down
The first is Tom Petty, a kid from Florida you might have heard of. On this cut, his drummer is Ringo Starr, his rhythm guitar/back-up singers are George Harrison and Jeff Lynne. Don’t miss the lyrics.
Buffalo Springfield: For What It’s Worth
One of the greatest anti-war and anti-state songs ever.
The Who: Won’t Get Fooled Again
This classic, by The Who, is 8:33 minutes long, and the lyrics are shown as the song plays. Don’t miss the lyrics. Crank it up!!
Jimmie Vaughan: Don’t Want No Shackles On Me
Legendary bluesman Jimmie Vaughan is brother to the late Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Rise Against: State of the Union
For you “yoots” (youths) in the audience. Brilliant lyrics, totally seditious. You old coots won’t might not like this, but take heart. Our kids and grandkids understand how screwed up America is.
Tears For Fears: Everybody Wants To Rule The World
Rage Against The Machine: Testify
Against Me: Baby I’m an Anarchist
The kids get it wrong on throwing bricks through windows and burning down buildings, but listen to the rest of their message.
PokerFace: Calling For A Revolution
PokerFace: I’d Rather Die Than Be Your Slave
