Say It Loud! 65 Great Protest Songs

The folks at Popmatters have put together an interactive list of "65 Great Protest Songs," spanning from Beethoven to the Dixie Chicks, and including a bunch of YouTube clips, images, etc. As with any list, it leaves room for debate. Check it out here:

Part 1: Beethoven to Phil Ochs (1824-1965)
Part 2: Janis Ian to Jimi Hendrix (1966-1970)
Part 3: Curtis Mayfield to The English Beat (1970-1980)
Part 4: Heaven 17 to N.W.A. (1981-1988)
Part 5: Public Enemy to Dixie Chicks (1989-2006)

Any reactions? Do you disagree with any of the choices here? Would you add anything to the list?
