Skip to comments.Conservative Rock Music? - Vanity
Posted on 07/12/2014 3:15:18 PM PDT by QuisCustodiet1776
As a branch of the thread that was just posted about modern music - anyone have any suggestions for conservative rock bands? Why are there so few?
I have run across one: Tor Nemo
Can be found on CDBaby. Any others?
This could be a very very short thread
Lots of conservative musicians, not much in the way of “conservative” music.
Totally agree on the Ramones and still like Creed.
I’ll be honest with you, I don’t necessarily look for political viewpoints incorporated into music. As far as rock and roll, I’m not sure overtly conservative viewpoints would mesh well with the genre.
Music is music. While I can appreciate that you wish to support conservative musicians . . . .
If you IGNORE the person singing, I can name several from unlikely sources:
I’ll just mention Beatles’ Taxman, ‘cause it’s so obvious.
21st Century Man
Elton John (none of the three may qualify as straight rock and roll)
My Father’s Gun
Once You Understand
(just kidding on that one, but I include it because it unintentionally lampoons the lefty position on almsot everything)
I realized after posting that you just want real conservative bands/artists. That can be tough.
bob dylan, the band, the kinks, the ramones, aerosmith. i will think of a few more.
I’ve been a musician for 37 years and have yet to figure out which notes/chords/melodies are liberal and which are conservative.
Not sure if I'd call them typically conservative, but the Brando's lead singer, David Kincaid, is an active Civil War reenactor. It's hard to find lyrics much more conservative/reactionary than, "I am the keeper of the old ways..."
Madison Rising, http://www.madisonrising.com/
Most awesome rendition of the Star Spangled Banner I have ever heard.
Bump for daughter later
KISS. Gene Simmons is a major troop supporter and he’s sick of Obama.
Gene Simmons is a pervert and no conservative
The Kinks. Who else has used “conservatively” in a song lyric?
Well he’s been speaking out agains’t Obama. He’s a busiasman there’s no way he’s a commie. He also does a lot to support our troops.
Lots of RUSH songs are libertarian/conservative (hence my screen name). But it seems later on it has become more liberal. Neil Peart’s book and blog writings I’ll read, until he bash’s some conservative person or idea. He can get pretty liberal, but they keep it out of the songs for the most part.
Dont know but I do know Avenged Sevenfold is outwardly conservative. I believe the lead singer of Godsmack is as well.
What about the “Devil’s Interval”?
The tritone is big in Black Sabbath’s work. I like the old stuff.
Yeah, I know Peart leans to the left personally, but it’s hard to bash perhaps the greatest drummer since Buddy Rich...
Don’t forget The Temptations “Ball of Confusion” and the Eagles “Get Over It”
Conservative values tend toward personal responsibility, hard work, patriotism, loyalty self sacrifice...basically adult behavior. Rock music's message (when there is one)is basically rebellion against all of these (while Country music embraces them). Politically it's liberal vs. conservative philosophies.
However, Rock has been around since the 1950s. A newer generation may rebel against status quo liberal philosophy and see that reflected in their new Rock.
Just generalizations. Do not believe popular music has the impact it did a generation ago. And there is so much great Rock from so many years that one should just enjoy listening to what he likes.
Have you considered Christian Rock?
I like Third Day.
Dave Mustaine of Megadeth played the Star-Spangled Banner in D’Souza’s new movie.
In 2006, National Review compiled what was called the Fifty Greatest Conservative Rock Songs...
a pretty good list, even if some of the singers were libs.
I don’t bash him - I’ll just stop reading, or skip parts of his blogs. But he does a nice job in his blogs about traveling and relating it to life, etc. I really enjoy them. Not only is he an okay drummer, he’s an okay writer as well!
My friend, Neil Zaza. He’s kinda in the middle, but I’m working on him. I played pedal steel on this one;
Lap steel on this ‘un;
Even “Imagine” is somewhat of a lampoon of lefty ideas.
No possessions, John? Not even a little recording studio or some piles of vinyl discs? Did you “share” the single with the world, or did it cost a few bucks per person? I guess your own imagination is lacking.
I assumed that his response would have been that it only works if we all do it at the same time. This of course requires what would amount to either a voluntary monastic order, or enforced totalitarianism regardless of what it is called, to cull those who won’t imagine.
"Liberal Girl" is on CD Baby...I'm hoping to use proceeds from sales to fund more trips to the studio, but that hasn't panned out yet. The rest are just home recordings.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Wasn’t Rush (or at least Neil Peart) really into Ayn Rand? Perhaps that was way back (i.e. Anthem, Free Will, 2112, etc). And yeah, it’s kind of hard to diss them as good as they are.
Yes, he was. But he has also said that he has “grown” since then.
Simmons voted for Obama in 2008. His reason? Despite being "very conservative", he was "caught up in the historical significance."
Political correctness stamps out that which it politically opposes.
The Ramones (Johnny Ramone and possibly Tommy, who was in bands with him back to the 1960s).
Nugent (although time was he was a proud atheist)
Dale Hawkins (the originator of Suzie Q)
The Vandals (maybe, or maybe they were just instigators)
Moe Tucker (drummer of the Velvet Underground).
There is no “list”. Makes it harder for the left to blacklist them...
One thing about Gene, though...he loves money, and knows how to make it. Band, football team, television show, chain of restaurants (with a yummy menu)...
Yeh I know but at least he saw the light.
I still see the Beatles’ TAXMAN p!ss off liberals.
the title says conservative music, not musician
a much smaller pool
In one of those links I see the Beach Boys listed, and it discusses Brian Wilson and Mike Love. One of the other “sometimes” (60s and now again) members (don’t remember if it was Al Jardine, or who) made waves when he was posting some conservative facebook posts a year or two ago.
