Best anti-war song?


Recommended Posts

War Pigs

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgement day comes

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah!

Eve Of Destruction - Barry McGuire

Three standout to me...

1. Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix/Band Of Gypsys

2. Time Pilot - The Animals

3. Feel Like I'm Fixing To Die Rag - Country Joe

Give peace a chance oughta be the most important one, but musically wise, it's not very complex.

I'd rather say that Revolution is the best Anti War song.

But that's why it's great.. the message is simple, loud and clear.

Revolution is an excellent choice..

So This Is Christmas? as well..

imo Lennon was the greatest lyricist ... by far.

What I find ironic is when Born in the USA is played as a patriotic song at sporting events or Fourth of July parades.

Every Breath You Take is misconstrued by some as a love song and played at their wedding. I don't think it's necessarily ironic, more that some people are stupid and don't even listen to the lyrics of a song properly.
