“You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point."

Or Snooker Loopy by the Matchroom Mob.

I've never added anything of any value to the forum.

Inspired by the struggle against the Apartheid regime in South Africa. Lyrics are incredibly powerful and listened many times when needing a kick up the arse.

Was unaware the levellers did a tune about the battle of the beanfields. Intro is a tad unpleasant. These are my kinda hippie, a step up from yer turgid 5g spiders an anti vax hippie you get nowadays

Here's one by Scott Cook (a Canadian musician who has only had small venue tours in the UK):



Grace Petrie is hugely charismatic as a performer and engaged on a whole load of issues:



And then a few more by the anti-monarchist king of english protest:

You could suggest loads of DK songs!

Bad Breeding are one of my favourite of current bands producing music of a similar ilk.

It's from their stand out album, Levelling The Land, albeit almost 30 years ago now.

I've seen the Levs a regularly over the years, and at least once a year for the last five years.... they're as good now as they always were. (if not better)

Absolute class act.

And in response to the OP, you could pretty much pick any Levs tune they've ever performed with the exception of literally one or two.

I love the King Blues! The Streets are Ours, Let's Hang the Landlord are other contenders. It's not a political or protest anthem, but Underneath this Lamppost Light is such an evocative, fragile and genuine song:

"The smell of kebab meat and sausage in batter will always remind me of you,
In the chip shop, at the end of the night, making sure I get some food.

So kiss me underneath this
Lamppost light.
I know it smells of p!ss but
you look beautiful tonight!"

All set to lush strings. It's a song that is beautiful in its honesty.

A lot of people have said that, but I've never listened to NMA... I probably should.

The Levs still tour regularly - saw them at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall and the Palladium in London, both of which were awesome, and then again at The Apex in BSE in February this year before the world went mad.

Also had tickets for them at UEA in March and in Nottingham in December, but they've both been re-arranged to within a few days of each other in December 2021, so I will now see them twice in four days next December, including one on my birthday.
