Where is the music of the Afghan war?

The Vietnam war killed millions of people and tore apart a country and changed the political landscape of its era. It also was front and centre of the counter-culture and music in particular played a large role in the anti-war movement. The songs, the albums, the artists didn’t just produce the music. The people consumed it and it was and still is immensely popular today.

So where is the music of the Afghan war?

If we can’t even write the songs, is it any wonder the War still continues!

It’s an open question, please feel free to post the songs you feel fit the bill in the comments section.

  1. Great suggestion by Denis.

    System Of A Down – Boom!

  2. A song about a different war, but one that is still current and (I would hope) still in the hearts & minds of most right-thinking people, is the Dropkick Murphys’ ‘Last Letter Home’.
    It’s basically a transcript of a soldier’s letter from Iraq, and the subsequent notification to his family of his death, set to the Dropkicks’ usual Irish-tinged punk stylings.
