Greatest Political Punk Songs Of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Let Them Eat War - Bad Religion

Bad religion has better political songs such as I Want to Conquer the World, You are the Government and of course American Jesus.

listen to the lyrics..u will get it

22 Ready to Fall - Rise Against

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.

23 Clone Town - TV Smith

Oops - "too busy"

"We are to busy shopping to notice the apocalypse...". "...and do you really want to know, how they get those prices so low..."

24 California Uber Alles - Dead Kennedys

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.

25 My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down (Bonzo Goes to Bitburg) - The Ramones

The only political punk song that has a good melody to it.
