Hey pit what are some good modern-day protest songs?

The songs don't just have to be about war they can be about people, organizations, events etc.

Why do you need modern day protest songs? The Internationale is still as true today as it was when it was written.

Protest songs don't get played on the radio anymore like they did in the 60's. I guess it's more important to have **** about bitchez and money rather than **** that makes the people question things

Anything associated with Rage Against The Machine is automatically a protest song.
Rage Against The Machine
One Day As a Lion
Street Sweeper Social Club
The Nightwatchman
Audioslave(to a certain extent)
Anything that Zach De La Rocha is involved with.

Also, some System of a Down stuff, Blood Brothers has lots of hidden political messages. Actually, anything associated with System has at least a few protest related songs.
System of a Down
Serj Tankian
Scars on Broadway
#28
As said, anything RATM related, somewhat SoaD. Hypnotize sticks out in my mind.

EDIT: Definitely Serj as well. Its like when RATM and SoaD combine, but they didn't make RoaM (sad attempt at a pun)
