Lol that would be kool.

Yeah, some song examples of the bands, would be nice.

And no. She's teaching a college course on it. And she knows plenty about it from the earlier eras, but she asked me for some more modern bands.

Your grandma should totally start listening to Rage. Coolest granny evar!

SOAD are quite political, no?

Immortal Technique is a rapper and activist. His lyrics are quite politically charged. Also he's insanely good even if you're not the biggest fan of rap.

Both Nirvana and Sonic Youth did semi-impersonal political/social protest during the 90's (Nirvana's Rape Me, etc. and Sonic Youth's Kool Thing.)

Is it by chance at the University of Minnesota and called CSCL 3172: Music as Discourse? Because I am totally taking that next semester. You're grams could be my prof!

That'll be weird when I seduce her in order to get a good grade.

I think Ozzy has some stuff about Iraq on Black Rain.

Ozzy has quite a few protest songs, but the biggest protest album was in the 80's (ultimate sin)

Alice Cooper has a few protest songs, but his tend to be more subtle, because they tell a story as well, and aren't always political. Pick Up The Bones has a specific story about slaughtering everyone in a village, but I think it's set hundreds of years ago so...

this reminds me of Tom Morello's mom introducing RATM.

who seen it?

Conspiracy of Thought. also in theory, most gangsta rap is a stab at the system in the ghetto, but it has drifted more towards random **** waving.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

A shedload of Depeche Mode stuff is about social protest. For example

People Are People (racism and discrimination in UK)
Master and Servant (uses S&M as a picture of social hierarchy and social political control)
Everything Counts (Thatcherism)

John Butler Trio have quite a lot of protest songs.

A Perfect Circle's album Emotive is pretty much all protest songs.

Bad Religion kick ass, but they're old as ****.
Recent stuff... hell even greenday have had a shot at protesting. If you're open to bands that are socially critical rather than "protesty" Muse and Radiohead.

I'll start with the folky stuff:

Defiance, Ohio
Tom Frampton
Ghost Mice

and then the punk:

The Martyr Index (If you check out anything from this thread, make it them)
Propagandhi
This Bike is a Pipe Bomb
Resistant Culture
Aus-Rotten
Against All Authority
I Object!
Sin Dios (their lyrics are in spanish, mind you)
La Fraction (lyrics in french)
Limp Wrist
Poison Idea
Witch Hunt

Those are some of my favorites, anyway. If you're willing to accept stuff from the 80's I could name quite a few more.
