Protest Songs

I am deeply interested in protest songs. As a musician and political scientist, these tracks pique both my interest academically and my auditory cortex. Below are brief essays I write to analyze certain protest songs as I continue researching them for a future project.

These posts should be considered draft forms of a prospective protest music manuscript.

You can also check out my work-in-progress Political and Protest Songs Database.

  2. TLC – “Hat 2 da Back” – (Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip, 1992).
