Abstract:

What roles do protest songs have in the organization, continuation, communication, and effectiveness of a social movement in the current political context? The goal of this paper is to incorporate previous scholars’ insights about protest songs as a means of political communication and an aid to collective action into political science and to test if they still apply in the era of globalization for the agendas of “new social movements.” We argue that globalization has wrought technological changes and changes in the nature of social movements and the campaigns they launch (both the issues they target and the enemies they fight against). Secondly, audiences and their tastes in music have also changed in ways that have changed the nature and efficacy of protest songs. Nevertheless, protest songs can still play a valuable roll in the repertoire of social movements today as in the past. Our empirical research demonstrates the value of and need for a comparative analysis of protest songs across time, issue, locale, music, and genre in order to understand their change forms, content, purpose, and efficacy.
