Where are the CIVID lockdown protest songs?

Recommended Posts

One of the ironies of the whole COVID lockdown is that the generation responsible for absorbing and parroting most of the COVID fear and driving facemasks, are the same generation who were out protesting Vietnam (under threat of police/military violence) and also ignoring the Hong Kong Flu.

Maybe it is age and hypocrisy on their side, but one feature of that time was some great protest music. One of my personal favourites being Buffalo Springfield, For What It's Worth. https://youtu.be/gp5JCrSXkJY

Although often considered an anti-war song, it is suggested Stephen Stills was inspired to write the song because of the Sunset Strip curfew riots in November 1966—a series of early counterculture-era clashes that took place between police and young people on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood.

Anyway, music against curfew (lockdown) has to be a good thing.

But where are the protest songs?

All I can think of is: Stormzy, Vossi Bop, with the F-Boris version: https://youtu.be/9ClYy0MxsU0 and some parody songs: https://youtu.be/M5azNpTwVk8

 Not exactly a protest song, but darkly prophetic "Bring back the Plague" track, predicting zoonotic global pandemic released late last year by USA extreme metal band.   ...Not a black swan,  just a big white one .


Yersinia Pestis!
The recurring pandemic
Not often enough it seems
For these mammalian hosts a systematic invasion is a must

These scattering rats
Their diseased existence
Earth's megalopoli a plague focus
Eradicated with Death's persistence

The density of the populace intensifies and modernized
The wrath of ""god"" bleeds from their eyes
...And like the raven this contagion keeps repeating, ever eating
Humanity to nevermore

Every body a host
Every body infected
Corpses white as a ghost
Naturally selected

Every body a host
Every body infected
Corpses white as a ghost
Naturally selected

Black Death, you've found us
Your cloak surrounds us
Boundlessly drown us
In bacillus countless

Bring back the plague
Delete those that threaten a new world
Start today
Dig their graves

They'll find a way to rid the world of finding new tomorrows
End of days
Dig those graves

Bring back the plague
Even if it means your own survival is at stake
Dig your grave

We'll find a way to rid the world of everyone tomorrow
End of days
Dig our grave
