How much would you cost ? – Favourite Rebel Songs

Inspired by the “summer of rebels” on berlin radio 1 & arte tv and inspired by the actual finance crises – this is my personal selection of rebel songs, anti racist songs like matana roberts anti slavery track : “how much would you cost?” or bille holidays “strange fruit”, songs of rage & as well “anti” rebel songs like “a new england” by billy bragg about finding a new girlfriend instead of revolting.

This is surely not exhausing & I tried to skip well known artists like beatles, stones, dylan, bob marley, rage against the machine or nirvana etc – but instead to choose my personal favourites.

There are even 5 german songs among them – so sorry for all international listeners, but be glad, I did not chose a song by the bavarian legend hans söllner – this would be really hard for you… *
