There are many people who lament the end of the ’60s and complain about today’s self-absorbed, materialistic youth. Now, I’m a teenager, and I can tell you that there’s a grain of truth (maybe a boulder…) to those complaints, but there’s also a vibrant political culture among those of us whippersnappers who do care.
Well, we all know Dylan, Lennon, and Young. But what about Francis, Folds, and Morello? If you take a look at the music scene today, it’s apparent that there are a lot of young people who care. There’s currently a lot of music in the same spirit, if not the same style, as the classics of protest music.
