Most Americans? That's a hard topic. Probably no single song per se
but "The Dixie Chicks" come to mind in that regard. Dissent is less
and less a part of the American landscape as more and more ways are
developed to curtail it. "Tasered for a Question," a new single you'll
never hear by no one in particular. With fewer outlets the big
corporate contract for recording and touring is harder to risk with an
unfavorable political point of view. Maybe that's b.s. as regards rap
music, but mainstream corporate culture burped up their lunch over the
Dixie Chicks speak out.
