Personally, I get moved every time I hear the song "The Partisan" by David Eugene Edwards of 16 Horsepower (great, and underapreciated (sp) band from Denver), and Noir Desire from France.

If you have a good speed connection, you can here an MP3 of it HERE. (3.8 meg file)

I have no idea if it is a traditional song, a new one, if it was originally French or English. But great nonetheless. I don't know if it would get people too uplifted though.

Thanks cliff for giving these folks the heads up about our band Poker Face. If any body is interested in hearing some of our tunes.... you can click on this real audio link and hear 8 of our songs.  
http://www.pokerface.com/pfr.ram

The first song is
'Id Rather Die then Be Your Slave'
we have video clips of Mel Gibsons
'The Patriot ' put to this song here...
http://www.pokerface.com/videos.html

for a taste of the lyrics to this song...

Rather Die Then Be Your Slave

I do not wish this life to pass away
But life presents such possibilities - Each and every day
I heard a calling that was right for me
I prayed for strength for what’s a head of me - Please show me the way

The sun rose high and burnt the night away
Who stood before me was my enemy - Don’t tread on me
He’s come to take away my liberties
I’d rather die than be a slave to thee - Don’t treat me this way

   CHORUS:   I’d rather die than be your slave
   I will survive, and you’ll feel my rage
   Its not a question of being brave
   I’d just rather die, than be your slave


   CHORUS

It didn’t matter who shot first that day
They killed my brothers, they laid dead by me - I’m covered in their blood
We hit them hard we made them pay that day
We hung the traitors from the highest trees - No mercy from me

We lost a lot our pain was heavy
We sacrificed for GOD and country -  No more colony
Still held the ground that was in front of me
This was our price to pay for liberty - Still you hear me say

   CHORUS

Much time has past, we repeat history
Our toys have changed while man has stayed the same - Evil in his ways
Tribal families rule not over me
I will not let them rape our  liberties - We’ll die for them today

Dream Theater is cool.  Incidentally, I think "ceo\l" is masculine and therefore the appropriate phrase in Gaelic is "ceo\l mo/r."  ;D  Perhaps you know better than I, however.

A lot of great songs have been mentioned, but there are two songs that get me a-stomping and a-singing every time; I was excited to see that one's been listed.

The Pogues' "Young Ned of the Hill" and
Ween's "Shot Heard Round the World"

Both of these songs just whip me into a goosepimpled frenzy of righteousness and pride no matter how many times I hear them, so use them sparingly as 'background' unless you're prepared for their effects.

And yes, the original Schoolhouse Rock version of "Shot.." is good too, but I really enjoy the Schoolhouse Rock ROCKS! album myself.

Jason - Yeah, I've seen it spelled that way as well. My very limited knowledge of Gaelic isn't enough to know which is correct...perhaps I should just say "piobaireachd" instead.  :)

I think Psychotic Waltz might have been libertarians.  They were pretty clearly anti-drug prohibition, though as serious artists they fortunately didn't put politics over music.  Their music is quite good, a mix of California psychedelic and progressive metal, basically recommended for fans of Floyd and Rush (but with a heavier edge than those 2).

Here are a couple of their songs:

"I Remember"

I remember a story of great battles won
And the tale of our heroes who died by the gun
While the rest looked and smiled at the freedom they'd won
But the weight of the chain slows the run
I remember a song about flags standing high
As the red blazing rockets turned dark a blue sky
I remember the reason the weak shared good-byes if they could

Let's take a look now what we've changed
After all it seems so much the same
After all this time
Can't we make up our minds
Must we all play the losing game

I remember the war of the great days of old
And the battle hymns they sung while they died in the cold
I remember the good men they bought and they sold for a dime
I remember a sight at the dreams that we had
And the injustice they'd suffered had driven them mad
I remember when we had the right to be sad all the time

Let's take a look now what we've changed
After all we're still so much the same
After all this time
Can't we make up our minds
Guess we'll all play the losing game

"Freedom"

People can you feel anymore?
Look through the keyhold, listen at the door
Can you see?

Freedom is blowing away
By the wind that flies your flag
The pride of yesterday
People can you breathe anymore?
Do you remember what you're fighting for?

Are you free?  Can you be?
Are you free?  Can you see?

Can you feel my soul?
Can you feel?
Can you feel the quiet cold?

Now I drift so far away
Will you close the door behind?
We'll fly where the sun will shine
Alone and free, to go where we'll never be

On their last album they wrote the following:
"Thanks go out to:
God, Family, Friends, The Fans, The IRS, and of course...Satan (just kidding.)"
That just cracks me up.

Here we go...(with all appropriate acknowledgements to Neil Young and Pearl Jam):

"Rocking in the Free State"
(to the tune of "Rocking in the Free World")

There are colors on the street...red, white, and blue.
People shufflin' their feet. People sleepin' in their shoes.
There's a warnin' sign on the road ahead.
There's a lot of people sayin' freedom's already dead.
Don't feel like a slave, but I am to them,
So I try to escape 'em, any way I can.

Keep on rockin' in the free state. [3x]

I see a Fed in the court with our rights in his hands,
He's throwin' them away, oh, in the garbage can.
Now with those out of the way, he's gone to make a bust.
He loves the power and he'll take it out on us.
That's one more kid that'll never go to school,
Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.

Keep on rockin' in the free state. [3x]

The US of A, the United States...
Ain't a free place, it's not a free place...
Ain't got no privacy, barely got the right to speak...
There they got the right to keep an honest buck...
The USA ain't a free, free place...

There's a thousand points of light for the freedom-seeking man.
There's a kinder, gentler policeman's hand.
There's government drones, and reams of paper,
Bloodsucking taxes, layer on layer.
There's a man of the people, says "Keep hope alive."
Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive.

Keep on rockin' in the free state. [4x]

My personal favorite FSP anthem would have to be

"For What It's Worth", by Buffalo Springfield.

It is perhaps a bit overused, but it never fails to inspire.

-mdw


That's a great one!  And I can play it too!

Here's the lyrics for those interested:

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH- Buffalo Springfield

There's something happening here
And what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me that I've got to beware

CHORUS #1:
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look whats goin' down

There's battle lines being drawn
And nobody's right, if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

CHORUS #2:
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what goin' down

What a field day for the heat ooooh
A thousand people in the street  ooooh
Singin' songs, and carryin' signs  ooooh
Mostly say "hooray for our side"  ooooh

REPEAT CHORUS #2

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step outta line, the men come, and take you away

REPEAT CHORUS #2

**********************************************************

Also, there's a very good Black Sabbath song titled "Into the Void" about a group of people coming together to form a new free society.   However, I doubt heavy metal would work for us.

The Free State of Jones
« Reply #26 on: January 03, 2003, 02:32:06 am »

I accidentally stumbled upon this free MP3:

 ;D
http://www.blackdogrecords.com/caryhudson/freestateofjones.mp3
 ;D

Here is the back-story:

According to legend, Jones County in southern Mississippi seceded from the Confederacy during the Civil War. However, no evidence exists that such an event took place. The legend appears to have some basis in fact: the nickname "Free State of Jones" was used for the county, but was used in antebellum Mississippi and referred to the paucity of slaves in Jones County. A military operation was launched by the Confederate Army against an organization calling itself the Republic of Jones in late 1863 and early 1864. The Republic of Jones (and perhaps a second group called the Jones County Confederacy) appear to have been bands of Confederate Army deserters, who took refuge in the swamps and woods of Jones County. The Natchez Courier, a pro-Union newspaper, published a story lampooning the Confederacy in 1864, involving the supposed secession of Jones County. Encouraged by oral tradition, the legend has persisted to the present day.

The second one is probably more appropriate but I am a big Sepultura fan, so what they hey...

Sepultura

Refuse/Resist

Chaos A.D.
Tanks on the streets
Confronting police
Bleeding the plebs
Raging crowd
Burning cars
Bloodshed stars
Who'll be alive?!

Chaos A.D.
Army in siege
Total alarm
I'm sick of this
Inside the state
War is created
No man's land
What's this shit?!

Refuse/resist
Refuse

Chaos A.D.
Disorder unleashed
Starting to burn
Starting to lynch
Silence means death
Stand on your feet
Inner fear
Your worst enemy

Refuse/resist
Refuse/resist

Rage Against The Machine

Take The Power Back

Bring that shit in! Uggh!
Yeah, the movement's in motion with mass militant poetry
Now check this out...uggh!
In the right light, study becomes insight
But the system that dissed us
Teaches us to read and write

So called facts are fraud
They want us to allege and pledge
And bow down to their God
Lost the culture, the culture lost
Spun our minds and through time
Ignorance has taken over
Yo, we gotta take the power back!
Bam! Here's the plan
Motherfuck Uncle Sam
Step back, I know who I am
Raise up your ear, I'll drop the style and clear
It's the beats and the lyrics they fear
The rage is relentless
We need a movement with a quickness
You are the witness of change
And to counteract
We gotta take the power back

Yeah, we gotta take the power back
Come on, come on!
We gotta take the power back

The present curriculum
I put my fist in 'em
Eurocentric every last one of 'em
See right through the red, white and blue disguise
With lecture I puncture the structure of lies
Installed in our minds and attempting
To hold us back
We've got to take it back
'Cause holes in our spirit causin' tears and fears
One-sided stories for years and years and years
I'm inferior? Who's inferior?
Yea, we need to check the interior
Of the system that cares about only one culture
And that is why
We gotta take the power back

Yeah, we gotta take the power back
Come on, come on!
We gotta take the power back

Hey yo check, we're gonna have to break it, break it, break it down
Awww shit!
Uggh!
And like this...uggh!
Come on, yeah! Bring it back the other way!
The teacher stands in front of the class
But the lesson plan he can't recall
The student's eyes don't perceive the lies
Bouning off every fucking wall
His composure is well kept
I guess he fears playing the fool
The complacent students sit and listen to some of that
Bullshit that he learned in school

Europe ain't my rope to swing on
Can't learn a thing from it
Yet we hang from it
Gotta get it, gotta get it together then
Like the motherfuckin' Weathermen
To expose and close the doors on those who try
To strangle and mangle the truth
'Cause the circle of hatred continues unless we react
We gotta take the power back

Yeah, we gotta take the power back
Come on, come on!
We gotta take the power back

No more lies (8 times, building to a crescendo)
Uggh!
Yeah!
Take it back Joe
Take it back, a-take it back
A-take it back Joe, come on!
Take it back Joe
Take it back, a-take it back
A-take it back Joe, come on!
Uggh!
Yeah!

A song I've never heard untill recently, has been getting airplay on an obscure local station is Johnny Cash "A Man Comes Around". Not like any of the previous mentioned music on this thread, but it is sort of creepy and eerie (and slow with his aged voice) with a spiritual overtone, and when I hear it I think of the FSP.

On the contrary, metal is the only way forward :)

As a side note, are there any musicians publically supporting the FSP?
