    Many of the songs I would have mentioned have already been posted.

    A couple more:

    Peace Train -- Cat Stevens

    Runaway Train -- Soul Asylum

    Two very good ones about child abuse:

    Hell is for Children -- Pat Benatar

    What's the Matter Here -- 10,000 Maniacs

    Used to play that Bruce Cockburn song over and over, it is so great.

    I also used to play a song by the Call , 'The Wall Came Down.'

    I'll have to pull out these CD's and play them soon , it's been awhile.

    Posted by ZILLAGOD[/QUOTE]I love that one too. In one of my bands we always used to open our shows with If I Had a Rocket Launcher, which I recently noticed is suspiciously is suspiciously similar to All Along The Watchtower. One that I haven't seen mentioned is Love Train by the OJays.

    The Alarm - great band, good chops but iffy hair; they never really got out from U2's shadow, though.

    "The Stand" is another classic, although I was never sure what they were standing up to (or for)....

    Great song, It's about the book by Steven King, which shares the name "The Stand" 
    a really good book, I would say his best.

    The Stand is based on the book by Stephen King.
