Greatest Political Punk Songs Of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2
This song is great, as it can be interpreted two ways. One way is on a more individual level, while the other is more political. The political facet is, according to frontman Tim McIlrath, about animal rights, though I take it to mean something bigger. I take it to be a comment on everything the world is doing. The entire world, politically, socially, economically and environmentally, is "standing on a rooftop, ready to fall. " And in every case, its us who's causing this. We are killing ourselves, in every way possible. That's what this song is trying to say.
Bad religion has better political songs such as I Want to Conquer the World, You are the Government and of course American Jesus.

Oops - "too busy"

probably one of the best punk songs ever - gibsonsg
This is a great political song that provokes thought and puts a smile on your face at the same time. The idea of hippies being as oppressive as fascists is punk to the core. And pretty amusing.
Listen to this song and read the lyrics and you will understand why this is the best political punk rock song. (Billy Talent created this masterpiece together with Anti Flag)
