Supporting the troops is not the same as supporting the war

The myth about protest music is that it's supposed to all be very folky-sounding and played primarily by smelly hippie sorts who are out of touch with both reality and what a smart-sounding tune sounds like.

This stereotype is reactionary crap. There's a lot of good protest songs from all sorts of genres. I was reminded of this fact while bicycling the other day and having this moving song by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas come onto my iPod.
