Top 10 Songs Addressing Social Problems


The Top Ten

1 Peace Sells - Megadeth

"What do you mean I don't support your system? I go to court when I have to
What do you mean I can't get to work on time? Got nothing better to do
What do you mean I don't pay my bills? Why do you think I'm broke? Huh? " - Metal_Treasure

2 Out In the Fields - Gary Moore & Phil Lynott

It doesn't matter
If you're wrong or if you're right
It makes no difference
If you're black or if you're white

All men are equal
Till the victory is won
No colour or religion
Ever stopped the bullet from a gun

A thousand more will die each day
Death is just a heartbeat away - Metal_Treasure

3 Anthem - Iced Earth

"In your eyes I see you're desperate and in hunger
Reclaim your future, your paths uncertain
See this child it's raised in hate and in anger
His eyes wide open, his rage so focused
The single mother she is strained and she suffers
She slaves away, her life in turmoil
The homeless man had it all and now has nothing
His spirit broken plagued from injustice" - Metal_Treasure

4 You're the Voice - John Farnham

How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?

You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear

This time, we know we all can stand together
With the power to be powerful
Believing we can make it better - Metal_Treasure

5 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

"White man came across the sea, he brought us pain and misery". - Metal_Treasure
