I'm not a political guy, however I do respect people's rights to protest, freedom of speech, right to assembly, and for someone to stand up for what they think is right. Sometimes when a revolution or movement happens and is in it's infancy, there may not be a clear leader or a structured manifesto yet, but you can feel the world changing around you. As a New Yorker, for the last two months I have seen something not just happening here in NYC, but all over the world. People are standing up for things they believe in, and the world is noticing. Last Thursday I watched raw footage all day of thousands of people that took the streets, stopped traffic, and made their voice heard. Here are a handful of songs that I feel could be the soundtrack to a revolution. These artists talked of power, greed, corruption, and the resistance against it. Stand up and be heard, not matter what cause or percent you are. Music is expression and can fuel a revolution. Enjoy.
