Thread Name: The Protest Song-A Vanishing Breed?
Subject: The Protest Song-A Vanishing Breed?
In the present day when there is so much to protest where are these songs and singers? Is there a reason for their seeming demise? I recently listened to a good example by Robin and Linda Williams entitled "We don't Want Your Pipeline". Do you have other examples or a reason for the disappearance of this genre or am I just imagining the scarcity of these songs?
