Conservatives love classical music while liberals love jazz.

Even when it comes to rock music, right-leaning people have the best to choose from... On Saturday night when Scomo scooped the conservatives to victory... we were rocking with some of the greatest songs...

While the left have the odd nice ditty from time to time...

It's conservative music that powerfully and triumphantly stands the test of time...

Exhibit #1: The greatest conservative rock song of all time. Go Scomo.

Since is Won't Get Fooled Again a conservative song? It may have been co-opted by conservatives (just as Born in the USA was) but Pete Townshend is on the record as saying: “It is not precisely a song that decries revolution – it suggests that we will indeed fight in the streets – but that revolution, like all action can have results we cannot predict. Don’t expect to see what you expect to see. Expect nothing and you might gain everything. [The song was] meant to let politicians and revolutionaries alike know that what lay in the center of my life was not for sale, and could not be co-opted into any obvious cause.”

The National Review's top 50 conservative songs included Fortunate Song so that was pretty funny. Anyways here is a rebuttal (as much as I love Won't Get Fooled Again)

Let's not forget that this classic came in at #4...

It is unashamedly conservative in every respect.

Well I heard Mister Young sing about her
Well I heard old Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A southern man don't need him around anyhow


Incredibly popular song here in Queensland. Incredibly.

Lynyrd Skynyrd were not unashamedly conservative. Ever heard Saturday Night Special? This was Ronnie Van Zant's take on firearms:

Hand guns are made for killin'
Ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump 'em people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me

Then again, I recognise cramming people into a certain political group is the flavour of the day.

Most of the lyrics are actually quite ambiguous (are they really endorsing Wallace? What was the reference to Watergate about?). Even the response to Neil Young could be interpreted as a knee-jerk reaction to Neil Young putting down the 'Southern Man'.

It is a radio hit in Brisbane, though.

I prefer old school c&w to rap.
What do you mean by old school? The only C&W I've ever really liked is Johnny Cash (if that's even classified C&W?) Can't remember their names but the C&W stars who were big in the 90s (Garth Brooks? Travis Tritt?) were absolutely vomit inducting
