Songs of resistance

This Magazine Staff

What is your favourite protest song? I’m working on a very fun project for the magazine and I’m trying to compile as many essential songs of resistance as I can, from 1966 onward. Any genre, and country, any language—I’m trying to make this pretty comprehensive. Sure to make my list already are artists such as Phil Ochs (pictured), Rage Against the Machine, Le Tigre, the Weakerthans and Bob Marley. I’d love to hear what the Blog This community puts on to get inspired or feel grounded.
