What are the protest songs nowadays?
Back in the day, the younger generation had protest songs that they would sing or listen to in order to show their dissatisfaction with the way things are going. From Woody Guthrie to Barry McGuire, these compelled action and reflection about the state of the world.
There’s still a ton of crap going on in the world that is worth protesting in song, but nowadays I don’t seem to be hearing much protest music. Where are the songs about the war(s), the environmental mess we’re making, the economic inequality? Perhaps I’m a little old and out of touch with the music the “kids” are currently listening to, but I can’t really discern any protest songs at all. What am I missing out there?
