    Protest Music

    Hi chaps. As a noob, I'm still learning, so feel free to "Dome" me if this is retarded.

    I watched the basic protest training video, which mentions the most common music is the likes of Astley and the Fresh Prince. I was just wondering what you all thought of classical music?
    I'd been thinking of making a "popular" classical music CD at any rate, then wondered whether my efforts might be appreciated by others.
    Some examples would be...

    • The 1812 overture (the one with the cannons firing)
    • Carmina Burana (classic)
    • Ride of the Valkyries
    • Die Fledermaus (the grand music from the third Pirates of the Caribbean film)
    • Possibly something from the Dr Who 'Music of the Spheres' (Daleks? Cybermen? Oh yes).
    • The Ring of the Nibelung (think of the Bug Bunny opera episode)

    Any interest? Or am I just fooling myself?

    The Trans-Siberian Orchestra's version of the 1812 Overture is on the Lulz, a Corruption of LOL album. We like to play that in Winnipeg, as well as the USSR's national anthem. I dunno why, but it's a local meme.

    Re: Protest Music

    The 1812 Overture with the cannons is by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, methinks. I have it on my protest playlist. But the rest of my playlist is filled with more fast paced, upbeat, ironic stuff.

    "Party Hard," Andrew W.K.
    "Shimmy," System of a Down
    "I Got Erection," Turbonegro (the German version, not the shitty English one)
    "Helicopter," Bloc Party
    "Seven Nation Army," The White Stripes
    "Fight For Your Right To Party," Beastie Boys
    and moar.

    And then someone else has Scientology related songs. We switch out CDs and such and continue with our lulz.

    Edit: Good, I was right.

    Re: Protest Music

    Cool beans. That was just a starting place for ideas. I was picking the dramatic POW music (Wagner is good for that), but your right, upbeat stuff sounds good.

    Re: Protest Music

    This is just a thought, but in Minnesota, we play stuff that joe public likes to dance to and draws people in. Popular classical rock, 80s, 90s, that sort of thing. Much less metal and memes, though we still definitely play memes and some epic music.

    Its just that its noticeably different in our protests when we play the joe public music, many more people stop to talk, we get random people joining in dancing, and everyone has a great time and gets informed. Metal drives people away in droves and memes makes people look at us like wtf (which is still ok at times)

    Re: Protest Music

    We have a really shitty CD player, so people in the cars that go by can't really hear us, and there are NO pedestrians where we've been protesting, just hundreds of cars. But for Operation: Parti Gras, I'll probably be hijacking some jazz CDs from my mother, seeing as we'll have a ton of pedestrian traffic for the location we're using.

    Art Of Noise feat. Max Headroom - Paranoimia
    Beck - Special People
    Fatboy Slim - Right Here, Right Now
    Rage Against the Machine - Voice of the Voiceless
    Electric Six vs Les Rhythmes Digitalles - Danger! High Voltage (Soulchild Booty mix)

    Muppets - Mahnamahna
    Nancy Sinatra - These Boots are Made for Walking
    Bloodhound Gang - Legend in My Spare Time
    Rage Against the Machine - Know Your Enemy
    Weird Al Yankovic - Dare To Be Stupid and I'll Sue Ya (of course)

    Undecided on...

    Aphex Twin - Come to Daddy
    Invasion of the Gabber Robots - All Your Base Are Belong To Us
    Bloodhound Gang - Your Only Friends Are Make Believe
    Rogue Traders - Rescue Me
    The Offspring - Have You Ever
    Tom Lehrer - The Folk Song Army
    Weird Al Yankovic - One Of Those Days
    Weird Al Yankovic - Everything You Know Is Wrong

    Probably throw in some more Voltaire... or maybe something from the Run Lola run soundtrack...

    Re: Protest Music

    @Namenlos: Just play stuff. You'll figure out first-hand whether people enjoy it or not, and just add/remove stuff as you go. That's why I like our setup with the iPods, you can change it up without burning through countless cds.
    My parents made the mistake of letting me listen to Tom Lehrer's songs when I was five. They received a phone call the next day from my kindergarten teacher because I was singing some very strange song about how "all the white folks hate the black folks and the black folks hate the white folks . . ." (National Brotherhood Week).

    Re: Protest Music

    I don't have an iPod, just a regular MP3 playah.

    Same! Except I was about...10... and got strange looks for singing "I got it from Agnes" not having a clue what I was singing XD

    Re: Protest Music

  23. Elbynonamous Member

    Re: Protest Music

    I have a few songs from that Scientology children's musical. Lmao. I'm a fan of "Mr. Auditor".

    I also have the Still Alive remix from the Anonymous Still Alive video. ;D

    Re: Protest Music

    Saber Dance for the win, but I like Heart by the Pet Shop Boys. The lyrics are penned straight from anonymous to scientology. It's a lulzy song.
