    NEGETIVE! - This was a style that continued on the legacy of the 1960s but with a more upbeat and harder style. Heavy guitar riffs and more decibels helped to motivate those who were still upset about the status quo in the country.

    The 1980s has been described as a decade of greed. Because of the strength of the economy, more people were spending more money on themselves and their families for luxuries and conveniences.

    Is Protest Music Dead? (negative)
    Ever since John Lennon and Yoko Ono led a raucous crowd of flower-toting, peasant-bloused hippies in a pot-hazy chorus of "Give Peace a Chance," it seems to have been a pop axiom: When the United States goes to war, the musicians begin calling for peace. So why, since Sept. 11, have we heard so little new music protesting Bush Junior's war on evil?
