Best Conservative Rock Song 1

“Won’t Get Fooled Again,” The Who



The conservative movement is full of disillusioned revolutionaries; this could be their theme song, an oath that swears off naïve idealism once and for all. “There’s nothing in the streets / Looks any different to me / And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye. . . . Meet the new boss / Same as the old boss.” The instantly recognizable synthesizer intro, Pete Townshend’s ringing guitar, Keith Moon’s pounding drums, and Roger Daltrey’s wailing vocals make this one of the most explosive rock anthems ever recorded — the best number by a big band, and a classic for conservatives.  

The best part was the end paragraph and the last sentence.

Now that's the truth. Roger's scream transformed that song into the anthem of all anthems in my little world.

So of course it is a conservative song. it's a libertarian song too. One thing we can definitely say is that both literally and metaphorically the song is NOT modern-ly liberal or socialist.
