I didn't do any real research before dropping this thread in here so take it for what it's worth...

But I got to wondering about war songs. I don't know what was going on in WWI. WWII had the airwaves full of propaganda tunes. I think that musicians skipped Korea. Vietnam was the opposite of WWII as the protest song took over. The Cold War gave us a couple of tunes, like RUSSIANS (Sting). But the first Iraq war and Bush Jr.'s Busy Day haven't produced really anything. No songs of protest. No songs of support. Why is this? Has the music industry checked out of the political arena? Where are the modern U2-type's? Activists like Dylan or flag wavers like the Andrew's Sisters?
