I think it sucks that there arent that many policical bands out there. Alright there message can sometimes be contrived and interpreted by their young audience in the wrong way, but it gets a lot of people into political and social issues.

Which bands are political?

Obviously starter...RATM

New Politics.

Kicking a man when he's down, I'm proud of you

When they're down is the safest time.

Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Wanna join me when I take my turn to pour the gas, light the match, see your world flip upside down and drop until it's inside out?

Pink Floyd can be pretty political.

Also, the Rolling Stones were very anti-establishment.

(mostly metal warning) all shall perish, authority zero, blinded by faith, carcass (kinda), fear factory, five finger death punch (although their lyrics are AWEFUL), gojira, hazen street, heaven shall burn, into eternity, lamb of god, meshuggah, mushroomhead, pitch black forecast, sage francis, sepultura, soulfly, the suicide machines, unearth...

... also, pretty much everything that falls under punk rock....

Crass, Discharge, Rudimentary Peni, Civil Disobedience, A Global Threat, The Unseen, DOA. Early Chumbawamba.

Listen to Crass.

A bunch of other punk bands (if not all) are political, on the more melodic side there's Good Riddance, (later) NOFX, Star Fucking Hipsters.

Listen to Crass.

And early Chumbawamba. They're still political but their earlier stuff is better.

S.O.D.

Excellent choice. I'd throw Carnivore and Fearless Iranians From Hell in there, too.

I'm typically not a fan of overtly political bands. Subtlety goes a long way. Legion of Doom and Graveland are good examples of that.
