A few of my favorite anti-consumerism songs

A few of my favorite anti-consumerism/anti-capitalism songs:

Freeland - We Want Your Soul
Go back to bed America. Your government is in control again. Here, watch this! Shut up! You are free to do as we tell you!

John Lennon - Working-Class Hero
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV / And you think you're so clever and classless and free / But you're still fucking peasents as far as I can see.

Placebo - Sleeping with Ghosts
This one world vision / Turns us in to compromise / What good’s religion / When it’s each other we despise

Republica - Out of the Darkness
Go into the rush hour, out of the factory / Leave it behind / Turn on your TV, back to suburbia, every night / Come out of the darkness, over the offices, into the light

Todd Snider - Conservative, Christian, Right-Wing Republican, Straight, White, American Males
Conservative Christian, right wing Republican, straight, white, American male / Gay bashin’, black fearin’, poor fightin’, tree killin’, regional leaders of sale / Frat housin’, keg tappin’, shirt tuckin’, back slappin’ haters of hippies like me
