A Resist/Protest Writing Playlist

Image result for resist

I Give You Power- Arcade Fire ft. Mavis Staples 

I give you power/I can take it away

When the President Talks to God- Bright Eyes

When the president talks to God/Do they drink near beer and go play golf/While they pick which countries to invade/Which Muslims souls still can be saved?/I guess God just calls a spade a spade

Master of War- Bob Dylan

You might say that I’m young/You might say I’m unlearned/But there’s one thing I know/Though I’m younger than you/That even Jesus would never forgive what you do

Fortunate Son- Creedence Clearwater Revival

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand/Lord, don’t they help themselves/But when the taxman comes to the door/Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale

Glory- John Legend and Common

Somewhere in the dream we had an epiphany/Now we right the wrongs in history/No one can win the war individually/It takes the wisdom of the elders and the young people’s energy

Troubled Times- Green Day

What good is love and peace on earth/When it’s exclusive?

Killing in the Name- Rage Against the Machine

Fuck you/I won’t do what you tell me

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised- Gil Scott-Heron

The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised, will not be televised/The revolution will be no re-run brothers/The revolution will be live

Fight the Power- Public Enemy

Our freedom of speech is freedom or death/We got to fight the powers that be 

American Idiot- Green Day

Well maybe I’m the faggot America/I’m not part of a redneck agenda/Now everybody do the propaganda/And sing along to the age of paranoia

Sleep Now in the Fire- Rage Against the Machine

I am the Nina, the Pinta, the Santa Maria/the noose and the rapist/the field’s overseer/The agents of orange/The priests of Hiroshima/The cost of my desire/Sleep now in the fire

FDT (Fuck Donald Trump) Pt. 2-YG ft. Macklemore and G-Eazy

I’m a patriot/ I’m a stay right here/I ain’t living in fear/With my people who are Muslims, Mexican and queer/And we ain’t gonna let you fuck up four years
