Songs are always written for a purpose, to communicate a message, as any form of text. In this case, we’ll focus on songs written to protest about an important issue.
Musicians of all genres have voiced their support for causes such as civil rights and an end to war. With the recent surge of activism in New York and beyond, new activists can hum these numbers as they fight for immigrant rights or demonstrate to protect the environment.
