I've been thinking about posting this topic for a while, but never gotten around to it. It is no secrete that songs have a hidden meaning whether it's as obvious of Serj Tankian's Harkiri and Empty Walls or a little more Vague like the Cranberries's Zombie. Today I come to you with the question. With the music that you listen to you what are the influences that it has on you and what songs are these. Have any of them changed your views or have they been unsuccessful.

Serj Tanikan is awesome, as is System of a Down.

That said, I think I tend to listen to music that reflects my political views.... Rise Against is a major band that comes to mind there. There are others, as well. Green Day, to a lesser extent... Oasis, Smashing Pumpkins, etc.

I listen to more than just that, though... and there is some music that I like that is totally antithetical to my political views (like "Midnight Train to Georgia" for example), but which I like just the same.

I love Oasis, along with Smashing Pumpkins.

Martina McBride, and Toby Kieth. My family is very patriotic, as well as me. Toby Keith sings allot about the military, which is why I admire his music.

We share much of the same musical views.

Rush has a bunch of Libertarian songs. I do like a lot of stuff that feels anti establishment such as cage the elephant and rise against the machine.

I don't let music influence my views though.

Oh there are a bunch of good rappers that are anti estavlishment and virtually unknown on youtube which are way better than anything you hear on the radio.

Oh the negative things I have to say about him.
