I'm looking for other babblers to suggest some cool new progressive bands... (not prog rock, but progressive in the political sense...)

Well, they're not "new", but check out Vancouver hip-hop band "Sweatshop Union" -- they're *awesome*...

Dope Poet Society.

System of a Down - very political, although I'm not keen on their music.

Ministry - Their last album was pure anti-US government, and the show was amazing

KMFDM - WWIII and Hau Rock have definitively progressive elements.

Refused. Simply my favourite band, though not around anymore. So maybe not 'new'.

I second Sweatshop Union.

Most anything on G7 Welcoming Committee.

Lots others, that while not thought of as progressive, have some/lots of progressive lyrical content.

I'm not very up to date on my political music at the moment. Most of my tastes are out of date by roughly six years. But I continue to enjoy Dillinger Four and Propagandhi.

I have a guilty fondness for System of a Down. Their latest album, Mezmerize, was, I thought, terrific.

I can't help loving a band that throws lines like "my sweet clementine" almost - but not quite - at random amidst a torrent of metallic vitriol.

One all-time favourite political song from groups I don't otherwise listen to is the collaboration, featuring Zack de la Rocha, KRS One and Last Emperor, CIA (Criminals in Action).
