Where have all the Anti-War Songs gone?
Posted by Fredsvenn den november 6, 2007
It has become a media cliché that there are no more antiwar songs like there were in the 1960’s and 1970’s against the Vietnam War. It’s not true. One look at all the music videos on the Stop the War web site show the range of anti-war records that have been made, protesting against all the George Bush wars. Ian Brown’s decision to launch his new single ‘Illegal Attacks’ through the Stop the War website was an innovation but the peace message of the record was not. The difference between now and forty years ago is not that the songs are not getting written but that they are not being played on radio or television.
