I didn't grow up in the 60-70's so it has little relevance to me, for Folk I mean. Additionally, I think Folk music has served it's purpose now as it's not confrontational enough. I may dislike PETA but they get attention. Nowadays unless you nearly shout with a bullhorn(being figurative here) no one listens. It's a fault of a lot of radical Right Wing groups making so much noise as well.

and one of their best albums, love the fact that it was a case of "rock out before we get tossed out".

I got a letter from the Government, the other day
I opened and read it, it said they were suckers!
They wanted me for their army or whatever
Picture me givin' a damn. I said "Never!"

Those who shout the loudest impose their will
Upholding laws that serve the few
Declaring peace while the sirens sing
In the name of progress, the name of madness
Drum beats faster, crowd shouts louder
And chaos replaces order
I want justice for the voice that can't be heard
Vindication for every suffering and hurt"

For all the folk who gave their lives for us
For all the folk who spit out - never say die
For all the fires burning on our highest hills
For all the people spinning tales tonight
Fight all the powers who would abuse our Common Laws
Fight all the powers who think they only owe themselves . . .
