Another song, maybe more prophetic than protest, Eliza Gilkyson's Runaway Train which predicted the financial collapse a couple years before it happened:

12. Ok I can't leave out Roger Waters.. RUN LIKE HELL
Live from 2011

Just FYI The Wall is coming back to the states for an encore run. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. And if politics is your game you will never see a more liberal political statement than The Wall live. If you can afford it go.
