Some musicians love being political. Outside of country music, political songs are almost always about progressive talking points. Flobots, whose entire album might as well be written by International A.N.S.W.E.R., is one much group.
Lyrically, they are typical “the world sucks. if only people listen to me” bs. Musically, however, they are so talented that I could care less about their politics. I believe I should separate the message from the message machine (though the musicians who write these songs may object).
If they rock, I will rock to their tune. Flobots most definitely rock.
