"dhamilton" has a rather wide definition of what constitutes a political *pop* 
song ;-) 

 I originally opted for Lennon's "Gimme Some Truth" with its rage against the 
machine. But Lennon had rather dubious alternatives to replace The Man.

 Here is a better choice that perfectly captures the mood of our present 
parlous state - "Everybody Knows" by the incomparable Leonard Cohen (always 
preferred him to Dylan). The song was used to great effect in Atom Egoyan's 
movie "Exotica". Don't miss that one.
