The Contenders

11 Know Your Enemy - Dead Prez

Told it like it was in the Bush era. Hopefully woke up many ignorant people.

13 Taxman - The Beatles
14 Peace Sells - Megadeth
15 The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson

Great song. Definitely check it out if you haven't.

17 Amerika - Rammstein
18 American Jesus - Bad Religion
19 N.W.O. - Ministry
20 Everything Counts - Depeche Mode
21 Bullet in the Head - Rage Against the Machine
22 Pigs (Three Different Ones) - Pink Floyd

Waters has basically turned this song into a protest song against Trump now. "Pig stain on your fat chin" suits Donald very well.

However, it was originally about 2 politics and the police, that's what the (Three Different Ones) refers to. The first verse is about the UK Prime Minister of the time this was released. The second is about the police, "You're hot stuff with a hatpin and good fun with a handgun." And the last verse is about Mary Whitehouse, an activist trying to censor sex and violence on the T.V.. - BrianScott01

23 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

Great
