Just do what the teacher likes to get a good grade. Fight the machine!

I scored major points with my lesbian German teacher by stating that Kafka might have been gay.

All of those suggestions are good, but right now the choice is between LoS and 17 and not all those others like RWA.

I'm not sure I'd call Legion a "political" song at all, an "existential" maybe.

Then go for Seventeen, since it will rock your classmates' asses.

Legion has a slight problem of be relevent to a vote. It was in regards to not voting for bush, thus the lyrics "DONNNNT VOOOOOOOTE FOOOOOOOR BUSSSSHHHHHH!"

It was quite directed at an individual, I wouldn't use that song for the purpose you're seeking. Theres tons of songs that attack Bush, I don't think I'd call them political.

Yes, Legion of Stoopid is a GREAT song and still has points that are valid today, but it's defenitely written for a certain time. If you're stuck on doing LoS or Seventeen, I would most defenitely go with Seventeen personally. It's still very relevent to this time.

Edit: Oooo this was post 666 =P. How... evil

That is also what I'm considering most, since it is (imo) the best of the two songs.

It's also (slightly) less blatant, which makes you look better when you explain it.

INstead of "well, here, where they say 'don't vote for bush,' they're saying, uhm... not to vote for bush..."

Agreed on Seventeen. I actually did get some flak when I posted the lyrics on a board somewhere in a topic relating to the "War on Terrorism". I'm still waiting for the CD to hit the American public.
Your approval fills me with shame.

Redeemer? I don't want to seem pessimistic, but: -dream on.

The Retail edition is supposed to be sold in America so that's close enough.

it seems like every song has something that could count as political, and there are better bands for political lyrics you know ;)
