Have modern convinces kept us from needing or wanting to stimulate a critical appraisal of social conditions?

Do we feel disillusioned and indifferent to all news, because i never hear it reflected in todays music as strongly as that of the 70's and 80's, (mainly english bands).

Maybe instead of lyrics pop singers should just speak in tongues only the verbs that fit their voices best and their fans ears.

Then again do we want this?
Would audiences understand Imagine Dragons or Miley Cyrus if they suddenly dropped in a few lines about the dangers of GMO's into one of their hedonistic lifestyle songs?

So i'm bias, but music can be used as a tool to encourage social awareness, especially if you've got millions of fans idolizing you.
