I'd recommend a great book for your research about highly political music/bands. It's called "The Real Frank Zappa Book" which is an autobiography that goes into great detail on his mid 1980's fight with the PMRC, congressional appearance, and political outlook. To give you a taste of FZ's political point of view, from his song "The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing":

"You say yer life's a bum deal 'N yer up against the wall...
Well, people, you ain't even got no Deal at all
'Cause what they do In Washington
They just takes care of NUMBER ONE
An' NUMBER ONE ain't YOU
You ain't even NUMBER TWO"

The books seem to be wonderful. Thank you to everyone who suggessted them, as well as the academic journal. Much appreciated. Again, if you have any more information you'd like to share, please feel free!

Aww, you beat me to it. Oh, well. If you're looking to decipher songs with a political message, you could also look into Iron Maiden's work, or even Bruce Dickinson's solo writings. It isn't always blunt, but the material's there.
