Most classical musicians are deeply involved in their unions which makes me doubt they are freedom seekers.  Many of them are refugees from foreign countries and should be involved in all aspects of freedom.  

Pop music is something I know nothing about.  I have a couple of professional pop musicians in the family but they work from one union job to another.

Here's a good one (slightly modified by me):

They couldn't see what I thought would be so obvious
They hide behind the laws they made for all of us
The ministry of truth that deals with pretense
The ministry of peace that sits on offense
I'm washing my hands of what they're trying to do
It's for me, it's for me, it's for you, it's for you

I'm just a free state rebel
I'll tell you no lies
They say I worship the devil
They must be stupid or blind
I'm just a free state rebel

They live a life of fear and insecurity
And all you do is pay for their prosperity
The ministry of fear that won't let you live
The ministry of grace that doesn't forgive
Do what you will to try and make me conform
I'll make you wish that you had never been born

Cause I'm a free state rebel
I'll do what I please
Yes I'm a free state rebel
And I'm as free as the breeze
I'm just a free state rebel

They'll try playin' win your heart
They know it rules your head
If they could read between the lines
You know they'd see the real day

God only knows why they couldn't see the obvious
Is it because they manifest the incubus
The ministry of war that got caught in the draft
The ministry of joy that still hasn't laughed
When it's all boiled down and the day's at an end
I'll give you no bullshit and I'll never pretend

Cause I'm a free state rebel
I'll tell you no lies
They say I worship the devil
Why don't they open their eyes
I'm just a free state rebel
A free state rebel

 Can't forget Bad Religion's album Stranger Than Fiction i.e. the songs Inner Logic,Better Off Dead,and The Handshake.
  Then theres the ever popular  Kinky Sex makes the World go round,Police Truck,and the all time fear your goverment  duo Holiday in Cambodia and California Ubber Alles(one version for Jerry Brown,one for Ronald Regan,but i wouldn't be surprised if Biafra releases one for G.W.)
 Basically any punk band worth their weight has written at least one good revolutionary song.Of course Blink-182 and Sum-41 type pop punk bands don't fit this category.
 Oh,and a whole lot of Devo:Jocko Homo and Freedom of Choice.
 I could go on and on,but who wants to hear me blathr,I've taken up enough space.

This thread was covered on the blog Hammer of Truth, http://hammeroftruth.com/2006/05/25/top-libertarian-songs/
Go to it and suggest you favorite libertarian songs as there is (likely) going to be a poll for the most libertarian song.

My own favorite singer on the subject of freedom is Leslie Fish, though her best work is not currently in print, what with Off Centaur Publications and Firebird Arts & Music being titsup.  If you can find them, I heartily recommend her tapes "Firestorm!" and "It's Sister Jenny's Turn to Throw the Bomb" (the latter especially for the song "Jefferson and Liberty").  Lyrics to a few of her songs are at http://www.lyricsdownload.com/fish-leslie-lyrics.html.

A few off the top of my head...

Queensryche: "Revolution Calling", "Anarchy X"
Suicidal Tendencies: "Give it Revolution"
Metallica: "...And Justice for All"
System of a Down: "P.L.U.C.K.", "War?", "Prison Song" and "Deer Dance"
Rage Against the Machine: "Killing in the Name"
Megadeth;"Peace Sells", "Kill the King"

and my favorite:
Corrosion of Conformity: "Vote with a Bullet"

This list is good but you forgot Metallica's "Escape":
"Out on my own, out to be free
"One with my mind, they just can't see
"No need to hear things that they say
"Life's for my own, to live my own way."

From a differnt part of the musical spectrum, I like Bob Marley's "Get Up, Stand Up." For those of us who don't mind religious overtones, Marley's "Redemption Song" is also good.

Muse has a new song out that's in line with this thread. Ever listen to the lyrics to Knights of Cydonia?

Knights of Cydonia
--------------------------
Come ride with me through the veins of history
I'll show you a God who falls asleep on the job
How can we win when fools can be kings?
Don't waste your time or time will waste you

No-one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No-one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No-one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

I'm experimenting with an "audio signature." They probably won't always be "revolutionary," but this one is. :)

A 2.7 MB signature? This is the audio equivalent of Tracy's hideous lengthy signature over at NHFree?
Anyways, who is this band? They're singing "Live Free or Die", which is cool.
Pokerface?

Yeah, "Don't tread on me...Live free or die." If I made it an mp3 it'd be a lot smaller, but then it might be difficult for some to open. Hm... dilemma... The band is Iced Earth.

Skyclad, "The Antibody Politic" (new audio sig)

If there's anyone else out there,
disillusioned just like me;
It's time we tried to turn the tide,
with an overwhelming minority.
The masses are numb, their ethics awry.
Nothing's as dumb as the Vox Populi.
So...
If there's anyone else out there,
aiming sawn-off philosophy;
Let's all unite and make things right,
with an overwhelming minority.

Rocketman is a good singer of songs.  I believe he still gets to an occasional open mike night in between campaiign work.  I think the movement needs a lot more music... of all types.  If we had/have any classically trained musicians, esp. piano, I'd love to hear more humanistic and beautiful romantic stuff on solo instrument or with orchestra.  It wouldn't be as readily apparent the music was consistent with the new revolution, but, heck, how about reviving opera?  It almost always had an individualistic theme, sometimes the individual against the state.  The new libertarian opera: the world community of individuals kicks the corporate state's fat ass.
