    Correction on song 128 on the protest song list the full title os the John Prine song is Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore.Yeas it's a long title so I guess it will be in the game as John Prine

    Other typos on the protest playlist include The Replacements songs is actually called Bastards of Young & # 268 should read We're Not Gonna Take It. It's a good playlist just typed in a hurry

    I agree totally Narndt574. This would be a very interesting list to put on songpop. And i want to add a few more songs: The doors - people are strange, Unknown Soldier. Killing Joke - Eighties. The Pogues - Waltzing Matilda.

    There could be a entire series of Protest Songs that Songpop could roll out with~Punk Protest,Folk Protest,Hip Hop/Rap Protest,60s Protest,Modern Era Protest or 2000s Protest,British Protest,.Many possibilities.First most obvious would be a general protest song playlist

    There is also now a third list if Protest Songs suggested here, which can be merged in here as well :) so plenty of songs.
