Need help compiling a list of Liberty music and artists... :)

I'm wanting to compile a list of Liberty related songs and also artists/performers who support Liberty.

I don't want to restrict the list to only songs about Liberty so if you know of a performer or band that supports Liberty in their personal life that is fine too. But do give at least one example of a liberty-oriented song by them.

No restrictions on era or genre. Anything and everything is welcome. Anything from extreme hardcore death metal to children's songs.


******** The List (so far) ********
NOTE: I might be a little slow adding suggestions because I am in and out doing 5,387 things. But keep suggesting! :)

muse - knights of cydonia*
muse - the uprising
King Solomon
Roy Shivers
Black Sabbath - War Pigs
Bob Dylan - Masters of War
Occasional String Band
Arlo Guthrie
Jimmie Vaughan
Blues Traveler (John Popper)
Bob Marley
Frank Zappa

(will add to list as provided by everybody)

This an acquaintance of mine, Steve Vaus, check out his video of "WE MUST TAKE AMERICA BACK" These are the types of songs I have, if that will help. http://www.stevevaus.com/

Here are a few of my favorites

John Mayer - Who Says
Bob Marley - Get up, Stand Up
Muse - pretty much every song on Black Holes & Revelations, but especially Take a Bow, Exo-Politics
U2 - Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Tom Petty - Won't Back Down, The Last DJ

Rise Against is another great band for rebel music

pretty much everything they sing works

Here we go:

Black Sabbath - "Children Of The Grave"

Pantera - "Revolution Is My Name"

Megadeth - "This Day We Fight"

Metallica - "Disposable Heroes"

Local plug: Shoot To Kill - Pro-liberty and Ron Paul/anti-globalism old school metal/punk group from Western Massachusetts. www.myspace.com/shoottokill

This is tough

There are a lot songs about liberty yet those that deliver the message might not be pro-Paul or the R3volution.

I will compile two lists for those interested in both:

First I want to let everyone know about a great 2 disk CD with several awesome songs that are some of the best pro-peace ever compiled. The disk is from the motion picture "Body of War"
Artists include:
John Lennon, Michael Franti, Eddie Veder, Immortal Technique, Public Enemy, and a lot more.

Mainstream List:

Rage Against the Machine: Freedom, Take the Power Back, Know Your Enemy, Wake Up, Township Rebellion, Guerilla Radio

System of a Down: Prison Song, Toxicity, B.Y.O.B., Holy Mountain, Hypnotize, Soldier Side, Aerials

Flobots: There's a War Going on For Your Mind, Mayday!!!, Fight With Tools, We Are Winning, Rise, Handlebars (Highly Recommend this Album)

Muse: Take A Bow, Map of the Problematique, Soldier's Poem, Invincible, Exo Politics, Uprising, Resistance, Unnatural Selection, MK Ultra, United States of Eurasia

A Perfect Circle: Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums(original)

Disturbed: Deify, Ten Thousand Fists, Liberate

Megadeth: Symphony of Destruction

Metallica:Master of Puppets, ...And Justice For All, Eye of the Beholder, One

NIN: Capital G (Good Stuff on all Albums)

Queen: I Want To Break Free, We Are the Champions :)

R3volution Artists:

Jordan Page: Pendulum, Listen, Liberty
Marc Scibilia: Hope Anthem
Poker Face: Rather Die Than Be You Slave
Steve Dore: Anything

I'll edit if I think of anything else. There is a lot of good stuff out there.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

not quite a double post, but here's what I've said on this prior:

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Colin Elliott

I have been making rock and acoustic liberty music for the past few years. One song was featured on the Daily Paul, "Kings of Fiat."

My website is here [www.cpelliott.com] and some selected liberty themed tracks are:

Kings of Fiat:
Kings of Fiat - Colin Elliott - With Cinnamon Joe (2006) by ColinElliott

Culture Slave:
Culture Slave - Colin Elliott - With Cinnamon Joe (2006) by ColinElliott

Spreading Dumbocracy:

lets see ... skipping some already mentioned...

-Johnny Cash - God's Gonna Cut You Down
-Joss Stone - Governmentalist (feat. Nas)
-Guns and Roses - Civil War
-Immortal Technique ... lol... anything by him is on topic
-The Temptations - Ball of Confusion (thats what the
world is today)
Rage Against the Machine - ... a few ..
Pink Floyd - The Dogs of War ...maybe some others
Flobots - Handlebars



and my mind just went blank...


1st ammend song. 2 Live Crew - Banned in the USA

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make
violent revolution inevitable."
John F. Kennedy


ball of confusions one i didn't think about
rage against the machine is associated with anarchy... but i've been following Tom Morello through his "Nightwatchman" stuff, it seems he's a reformed anarchist> socialist...

I watched The Wall (film by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd) for the first time in years and recalled it is very anti-war as his father was killed in WWI (just listen to "when the tigers broke free") which more or less ruined his life...
oh... and can't mention that movie without this scene:
Goodbye Blue Sky

yes ...

but don't discount the Crew.... the rest of their songs ...but not that one

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEH_ms8d1ws < and dont forget there was a Gore involved =P

and I'm a big Floyd fan from way back... probably how I ended up here =)

And Rage, ya, I here ya, same with Flobots ... I have some issues with them but the songs stand alone.

And from the original campaign:
Marc Scibilia

A guy who sings lots of anti-war songs, as well as some interesting media and freedom takes:
David Rovicks (check out: "Evening News", "Neuremburgh", and "Halliburton Boardroom Massacre" and if you want to really challenge your moral compass: "St. Patrick's Battalion")

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

also: bob marley, frank zappa,

i'm heavy into the "jam" scene... so i'll tell my story of how i got interested in Ron Paul back in 2007, on tour...

I used to go to Widespread Panic shows quite often and in 2007 they played in Birmingham AL... after the show I approached the stage to see about getting a guitar pick/ drumstick/ setlist handed down from one of the techs... while there i noticed a girl holding a Ron Paul bumper sticker above her head for all to see. I didn't talk to her but it made me wonder who he was and i looked him up and the rest is history.

later i looked online at some photography taken during a Panic show that i didn't attend. One picture stood out and i saved it to my comp (which since crashed and i lost the pic). The pic was of the bass player (Dave Schools) and in the background was a Ron Paul sticker on his bass cabinet... whatever that means.
and while we are talking about WSP (widespread panic) i noticed that during the credits to "For Liberty" (the documentary) a guy is seen on a sidewalk dressed in a Halloween costume ( yes...he is a bong) which had a "WSP Satisfied" sticker on it (common sticker at WSP lots) and he was of course holding a RP sign over his head.

oh and there is a famous piano player whose name escapes me at the moment (not really my type of music) but i remember hearing that he donated to RP's pres campaign... if anyone needs clues he's a huge name star who everybody will at least recognize his name

-John Mayer supported RP in 08 (if im not wrong)
-Green Day seems to be kinda libertarian/anarchist (i might regret this one)
- Dwight Yoakam...
- Willie Nelson
- Ted Nugent
- Mojo Nixon
- Neil Peart (Drummer for the band Rush, supposedly a big Ayn Rand Objectvist)

UPDATE: the piano player is Barry Manilow, and don't forget Aimee Allen

The Nuge...

The Nuge seems at least borderline neocon. :p

I saw him in concert a couple times back in the 70's and still listen to his early albums now and then.

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

hate to put words in people's mouths

not sure if these people are 100%... also I don't know what John Popper thinks about ron, but i read somewhere that he is pro peace and pro markets

Roy Shivers, King Solomon are

Roy Shivers, King Solomon are two very, very good rap artists.

Thank you. I will check them out. I'm assuming they are accessible via youtube?

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

Some, but not all of their

Some, but not all of their songs. I bought King Solomon's CD which has some Roy Shivers songs as well as some of his own that are not available online.

Are you looking to publish this list somewhere? With all the Indie artists out there I imagine there are a ton of pro-liberty singers/songwriters/musicians among that group.
