LA Times: Where are the Protest Songs From Top Acts in the ’00s?

 Reed Johnson and Deborah Vankin over at LA Times.com posted an article that delved into the question of where are the protest songs, specifically about Occupy, when it comes to the top-grossing acts of the '00s? The article goes, “…much of the music that has topped the Billboard charts in the new millennium — Britney, Lil Wayne, Lady Gaga — might suggest that America has been one big party since 2001, despite the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, two major wars, a wobbly economy and a bitterly divided government. Likewise, the recent popular manifestations of that unrest, the tea party and Occupy Wall Street movements, so far seem to have been largely lost on popular music.”
