Producer:    Fever 333

Notes:
Brand new music from a band featured earlier in this space following the killing of George Floyd. Frontman Jason Aalon Butler spent 13 days protesting in Los Angeles in the wake of Floyd’s death and began work on ‘Wrong Generation’ immediately afterwards.

Butler says: “This project is art as activism first. I’m talking about what’s happening and what needs to happen. I hope you understand there’s going to be pain in progress. After dismantling and deconstructing all of these things, we can find a beautiful place to be together. For me, this whole EP is that 13 days after 34 years. You fucked with the WRONG GENERATION.”

Excerpt from ‘Unreality’
The government was pleased to have such a powerful ally in its fight against social evils.

Lyrics:
You wanted a fight? Well you got one
You wanted a fight? Well you got one
You wanted a fight? Well you got one
You wanted a fight? Well you got one

Well you got one
Well you got one
Well you got one
Well you got one

No justice
Just us
No justice
Just us
No justice
Just us
Nothing left
But us

Anti racist
These black faces
We all screaming “FTP!”
Power to the people
Take a knee while chanting
“I can’t breathe”

You wanted a fight? Well you got one
You wanted a fight? Well you got one
You wanted a fight? Well you got one
You wanted a fight? Well you got one

Well you got one
Well you got one
You wanted a fight? Well you got one
You wanted a fight? Well you got it

‘Cause you really, really thought that
That we’d go quietly?
That we would take it?

12 the biggest gang in the world
12 the biggest gang in the world
12 the biggest gang in the world
12 the biggest…
Yo, fuck that!

We the biggest gang in the world
We the biggest gang in the world
We the biggest gang in the world
We’re the biggest gang, gang, gang

Who’s the biggest gang in the world?
Who’s the biggest gang in the world?
Who’s the biggest gang in the world?
Who’s the biggest?
333

You wanted a fight? Well you got one
Oh, you wanted a fight? Well you got one
Oh, you wanted a fight? Well you got one
Oh, you wanted a fucking fight?

The game is fixed and the timer hands plead guilty
For centuries we’ve played a losing game
And today we find ourselves on the motherfucking winners’ circle
Take what is yours, get what you deserve
Today. Tomorrow. Forever. This is yours

‘Protest 100’s mission is two-fold: dispelling the myth that heavy metal is a brainless, socially unaware music genre, and raising awareness of the issues facing our country in the Nov. 3, 2020 election. The path won’t be exclusively metal—some punk and rap and other stuff will be in here too, including the classics—and is not a ranking. All songs are songs I’ve heard while putting this list together, ordered in a manner designed to entertain and educate.
