	Can we forget Gang of Four, the Dicks, the Dead Kenedies, X, at
least one good political song from Temple of the Dog, the Godfathers, and
our local political band, Die Warzaw? If we want to get into heavy metal
there's Black Sabbath, Living color, and Queensryche's "Operation
Mindcrime."  Of course, the original poster was asking about hip-hop. And
Jamal gave a damn good list. But there's so much more out there. I could
go on an on, but I don't have my music handy. :)
