Music of social relevance is still out there, but maybe just a little harder to find.

Without getting political what do you feel are the great modern protest songs? Post a link, if you like.

I'll add mine shortly.

Re: Modern Protest Songs

Words by Woody Guthrie (so not so modern), music by Billy Bragg and Wilco



Here's a lighter take, injecting social content into a pop song (with the late Kirsty MacColl on background vocals, co-written by Johnny Marr):
