    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Neil Young’s Ohio ringing in my ears because it is anti establishment, it’s stood the test of time and it’s by grizzled protest singer Neil Young.

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Take the Power Back – Rage Against the Machine ringing in my ears because fuck that shit, no one is going over the top listening to a pop record, we’ve got to take it back y’all, yeah we got to take it baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack !

  3. Leopold Gloom

    Id have to have Buffalo Springfield For What Its Worth playing. Its never not been relevant. It’s wasn’t intended an anti war song but lends itself to that.

    “There’s something happening here and what it is not exactly clear”

    That sums it up neatly. There’s a constant attempt at muddying the waters and stifling those of us who have questions. The few control the many, and the world has kind of gone to sh*t. Ireland in particular is a steaming cesspit of corruption and it saddens me everyday to wake up here knowing it wont change anytime soon even though some very good people try

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Rage Against The Machine’s Killing In The Name ringing in my ears because the refrain ‘F*** you I won’t do what you tell me’ is suitably vague to suit any SJW mission perfectly and it also makes me want to, well you know, go nuts.

    ‘Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of anything by Justin Bieber ringing in my ears because it makes me want to kill, kill and kill again’

  6. Frilly Keane

    Whenever I ever storm the barricades tis “We’re on d’one roooaaad sharing d’ one load,we’re on the road t’God knows where” rattling from yere guts n’ ringing in everyone’s ears because “North men South men comrades all, Dublin Belfast CORRRRKKKK n’Donegal”

    We’re on the one road
    It may be the wrong road
    But we’re together now who cares;
    but still, thank you Batty Brennan

    ‘Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of ‘Suspect Device’ by Stiff Little Fingers ringing in my ears because it is a home grown protest song filled with appropriate anger, energy and urgency’

  8. Matthew Purcell

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of “Negative Vibes” ringing in my ears because Damien Dempsey is the only protest singer in Ireland beside Christy Moore!

  9. Morgen Scheißekopf

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of White Riot by the Clash ringing in my ears because I want a riot of my own.

  10. Mourinho

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of

    Sleep now in the fire – by Rage Against the Machine

    ringing in my ears because

    If that doesn’t get you ready for a storm then nothing will.

  11. Clampers Outside!

    ‘Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of The Men Behind The Wire ringing in my ears because it would remind me of the memories my 7 – 9 year old self assailing up the embankment at the bottom of the garden to capture a fort built on it’s slope much to my mothers fury over the state of the flower beds trampled on the way up.
    The song’s most famous version, to my knowledge, was released by Barleycorn in 1971 the year I was born.
    With hurl in hand… sorry, enfield rilfe in hand… and whatever came with the action man utility belt, I’d charge up the incline, with the only lyric off the song I knew running through my head… “Armoured cars and tanks and guns, came to take away our sons. But every man must stand behind, the men behind the wire.”

    It was that or “who do you think you are fooling Mr Hitler” which just didn’t have the same menace to it….. funnily enough, the MBTW lyric was used by Dido for a song she released some few years back… yay, for the memories :)

      1. Otis Blue

        You can just imagine Campbell sitting down of an evening to some nice bland, inoffensive muzak and going apoplectic on hearing those lyrics.

        Nicely subversive indeed

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Lovely memory Clamps.
      When I was a kid of similar vintage and the Wolfe Tones would waft through a smoke-filled lounge on a weekend, I always thought the lines were ‘But every man must stand behind, the men behind Dwyer’ and always wondered who this dude Dwyer was.

  12. ploppy

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Creedence’s Fortunate Son ringing in my ears because when we ask this current shower “how much should we give?”, they only ever answer “More, more, more!!”.

  13. TomCo

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Careless Whisper ringing in my ears because I should’ve known better than to cheat a friend, and waste the chance that I’ve been given, so I’m never gonna dance again. The way I danced with yooooooou..

    What was the question again?

  14. Drogg

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Emerald by Thin Lizzy ringing in my ears because Listening to the opening beats no matter where i am raises my shoulders and prepares my body for war prob why i try not to listen to it these days.

      1. MoyestWithExcitement

        Hold on, hold on. Does this mean the Golden Disk vouchers from 2 Christmases ago, I foumd buried in the back of a wardrobe yesterday are void? Sheize.

  15. Aisling Campbell

    ‘Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Bob Dylan, ‘Hurricane’ ringing in my ears because its a great comment of the unfairness of the US judicial system’

  16. Eileen Martin

    ‘Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of_FREE WORLD by KIRSTY MACCALL (RIP) ringing in my ears because although it was originally an anti-Thatcher song unfortunately its sentiments still ring true and it is fast and furious.

  17. nellyb

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Firestarter ringing in my ears because tis a jolly fittn allegory

  18. Starina

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of the Clash’s Know Your Rights in my ears because it’s the truth, innit.

  19. rory

    Considering that the pejorative use of the ‘SJW’ term came from Gamergate misogynist idiocy, involving a coordinated online harassment of women for daring to espouse feminist views, I’m a tad perturbed by the increased acceptance of the term on this site.

    If you’re talking about protest songs: Bob Dylan – Who Killed Davey Moore? Live in Carnegie Hall, October 27 1963.
    (Available on the ‘The Bootleg Series Volumes 1–3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961–1991’)
    Because it’s a good version of the song; and the song itself is a great reminder of our culpability in a nearby injustice, even if we’ve concocted a comforting excuse for doing nothing.

    Either that or:

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Art Garfunkel’s Bright Eyes ringing in my ears because as I die tragically, nobly and in exquisitely toruous slow motion I want every hard-hearted bastard on the barricades weeping inconsolably, and also because I will be hurling burning exploding rabbits at them.

  21. Niall

    Should I ever storm the barricades it would be to the strains of Steve Earle’s brilliant When the People Find Out because he’s a legend, has a history of activism and the lyrics are simple but brilliant.

    They took you in, made you well
    They told you things, they never tell
    To pay the debt, you made em fools
    That’s what you get, they trusted you
    When they run to the temple and find
    That the treasure’s gone
    Do you think it’s gonna be a cross
    They’re gonna nail you on

  22. Maria

    Has to be Mick Blake ‘Oblivious’ . This song is fantastic especially the first line ‘What will it take to make us angry?’

  23. Penfold

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Girl Band’s “Pears for Lunch” ringing in my ears because once the opening line “Ate bananas and I thought about a jog” passes through your auditory canal, your shoulders arch, you’re fire up and ready to run through walls

  24. Dermot

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of We’re Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister ringing in my ears because it has a catchy chorus and sure what more courld you ask for while a storming barricades

  25. Spaghetti Hoop

    The Call Up by the Clash.
    Actually, include the entire Sandinista album.
    Followed by Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall.

  26. Pip

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Wasteland of the Free by Iris de Ment ringing in my ears because she really nails the passion and anger associated with gross inequality – “Where the poor have become the enemy”.

  27. Murtle

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of something light-hearted like Spanish Flea by Herb Albert ringing in my ears because it would keep morale up when the batons start swinging.

  28. Lorcan Nagle

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of NWO by Ministry riniging in my ears because what we are looking at is good and evil, right and wrong.

  29. Gaz

    Should I ever storm the barricades I would like the strains of Intervention by Arcade Fire ringing in my ears because every time I hear it makes me want to gather a large mob of people and burn a random building to the ground out of pure anger and adrenaline. It’s my little leprechaun that tells me set things on fire!

  30. Daisy Chainsaw

    Should I ever storm the barricades, I would like the strains of “Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benetar ringing in my ears because come that rousing chorus we happy band of stormers would break out into a synchronised routine that would let everyone know that “We are strong, no one can tell us we’re wrong!”
