I don't see Linkin Park being used as protest music. I was referring more to soul as a product of its time. Indeed soul is what music is lacking. Not that that makes it bad music, but true energy is often missing. There are exceptions like Eminem, Coldplay, Ms Dynamite and Norah Jones, but they are few and far between. And if I see one more Nelly/Justin crossover in the bar I'm going to go insane.
: : It's a fiar point. James Brown and all the soul guys were around America at the time of the Civil Rights March, and they were the ones singing "I Feel Good" and "Dancing In The Street". People forget that optimistic tunes can have meaning too.
: : : and Metallica is at the top of the list. I do not like their new stuff (Load/Re-Load) and yes...I do believe that they sold out.
: They have meaning, but I doubt the Civil Rights marchers were truly dancing in the streets, unless you count geezing over high powered fire hoses.
: And yes, New Metallica suck, they lost me after "...and justice for all." They went the way of the Aerosmith and the surving Zeppelin memebers, and most all bands that stay together after losing someone in a tragedy of some sort. (maybe it was life trying to tell them something)
