There are so many... which one's called out to you?  4 Dead in Ohio?

This new one by John Fogerty moved me.  "Weeping in the Promise Land"

Being that I'm REALLY old...anything by Jefferson Airplane/Starship.  One could start with We Can Be Together (Tear Down the Walls...).

Most of Gil Scott-Heron's work. One of his earliest - "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" -

I just finished watching a Nina Simone documentary on Netflix tonight. Apropos to this thread. Her music is revolutionary, rebellious, and timeless. What Happened, Miss Simone (2015, directed by Liz Garbus).
