    The National Review, an American conservative magazine, has declared the "top 50 conservative rock songs." When I saw this list, my initial thought was "folks, you don't have a clue!" The Beatles' "Revolution" is conservative? Not in this universe. "Rock the Casbah"? Are you kidding?

    Seeing US rednecky-types singing to 'Born in the USA' is always a hoot too.

    And why do they mix music and politics?

    I mean, I like a song or not regardless of their political content.

    I always thought it was stupid to say "I don't like this song because is conservative or because is liberal"

    I'd have to say that I havent heard of too many of the songs on that list, but the ones i have i love. They remind of America, and the good things she stands for.

    Someone actually thought people listened to the words of a song rather than the music? :lol:

    I would like to thank the writer of that piece for somehow lumping in a bunch of anti-establishment, drug addicted, booze swilling, groupy molesting, icons in with people like Rove, Bush, Farwell and Coulter.

    WTF !?!
    Thats the biggest pile of dung I've read in some time.

    The Sex Pistols is conservative?

    Why can't we just listen to music that sounds good, and not make a political issue out of every single thing? For crying out loud....

    Actually I could see it as being conservative! Primarily with this lyric;

    That lyric seems particularly conservative. The other lyrics? Meh I can see it going both ways.

    Heh. I remember seeing this list a couple weeks ago.

    While some of the songs on the list can probably be labelled as supporting "conservative values", I got the impression that many or most made the list based on a superficial reading of the lyrics (note that the list is about songs, not the songwriters)... probably because someone liked the song and wanted to see it make the list. :)
