We live in an age of upheaval. A time when the butting of heads is ever more apparent due to our social, and economic climate. The media wages wars in politics and agendas. People aren’t being treated fairly, or justly. Generations are being squandered and pegged as flaky or at fault for their predecessor’s mistakes. But we will not lie down. We will fight against injustice and for equality. Because our freedom and our future matters.
We live in so much turmoil these days that some find it hard to even turn on the news anymore. From police brutality and school shootings to criminal politics that have turned back the clock on immigration reform, LGBT equality, and women’s rights. The generational divide has grown. Over the past few years, its as if there’s a magnifying glass sitting directly on us, and the sun is at high noon. Animosity and tension are everywhere. But if there is one thing the avocado toast eating, unabashedly queer loving, feminist, marginalized, patriarchy killing generations to come are capable of, it’s action. Change will happen, but it’s up to us to make it.
The Protest playlist was curated because we are on the brink of so much change and the music on this list was created to help us get there. A couple of our favorite tracks featured, are Pro-test by Skinny Puppy and Where’s the Revolution by Depeche Mode.
For those long nights of poster making before the rallies. For those women with their pink pussy hats, and the black lives that matter. This is for those trans kids who killed themselves for being bullied, and the women who had to suffer Harvey Weinstein’s wrath. We are here to prove that Muslims belong and that a border wall defies everything that America stands for. That gun control is necessary and that our police force needs better training and more vetting. These tracks are sung for my friends who deserve to use the restrooms of their choosing and so that I can marry the woman I fall in love with. For the kids who have been sent to a home they have never known. This is playlist is for the Protest.
