The benefit of a democrat president is we would have another four years free of political rock songs. #bushliedmusicdied
National Review actually compiled a list of the top Conservative Rock songs. Let's look at ther top 10.
Nation Review's greatest conservative rock songs.
Last year, National Review asked readers to nominate conservative rock songs. Hundreds of suggestions poured in. they’ve sifted through them all, downloaded scores of mp3s, and puzzled over a lot of lyrics.
What follows is a list of the 50 greatest conservative rock songs of all time, as determined by me and a few others. The result is of course arbitrary, though they did apply a handful of criteria.
What makes a great conservative rock song? The lyrics must convey a conservative idea or sentiment, such as skepticism of government or support for traditional values. And, to be sure, it must be a great rock song.
1. “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” by The Who.
The conservative movement is full of disillusioned revolutionaries; this could be their theme song, an oath that swears off naïve idealism once and for all.
2. “Taxman,” by The Beatles. buy CD on Amazon.com A George Harrison masterpiece with a famous guitar riff (which was actually played by Paul McCartney):
3. “Sympathy for the Devil,” by The Rolling Stones.
Don’t be misled by the title; this song is The Screwtape Letters of rock.
4. “Sweet Home Alabama,” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
A tribute to the region of America that liberals love to loathe, taking a shot at Neil Young’s Canadian arrogance along the way:
5. “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” by The Beach Boys.
Pro-abstinence and pro-marriage:
6. “Gloria,” by U2.
Just because a rock song is about faith doesn’t mean that it’s conservative. But what about a rock song that’s about faith and whose chorus is in Latin? That’s beautifully reactionary:
7. “Revolution,” by The Beatles.
8. “Bodies,” by The Sex Pistols.
Violent and vulgar, but also a searing anti-abortion anthem by the quintessential punk band:
9. “Don’t Tread on Me,” by Metallica.
A head-banging tribute to the doctrine of peace through strength, written in response to the first Gulf War:
10. “20th Century Man,” by The Kinks.
