Usually whenever one thinks of "war" songs they think of the song that goes: "War! Huh! Good god, y'all! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!"
The guy who sang that song, BTW, was Edwin Starr, in case you didn't already know.
But there are, of course, other "war" songs that I think are pretty kick-ass. Here are a few of them:
"Masters Of War" by Bob Dylan
One of the most stridently "anti-war" songs ever recorded, Bob tells war profiteers in the song things like, "Not even Jesus would forgive what you do!" and "I'll stand over your grave till I'm sure that you're dead!"
"War Pigs" by Black Sabbath
This is one of legendary heavy metal group Black Sabbath's most famous songs back in their heyday with frontman Ozzy Osbourne.
"War Machine" by KISS
This was the final track on the album "Creatures Of The Night" by legendary rock band KISS, which was one of their "heavier" albums, and sung by Gene Simmons.
"Civil War" by Guns N' Roses
This is one of GNR's biggest hit songs. (BTW, the voice at the start of the song is NOT an old lady but rather is a character from the Paul Newman flick Cool Hand Luke.)
"Dogs Of War" by Motorhead
This is yet another song from legendary heavy metal group Motorhead which was, of course, fronted by the legendary Lemmy. (R.I.P., Lem!)
"This Means War" by AC/DC
I wouldn't say this is one of AC/DC's best songs. It's certainly not one of my favorite songs by the band. But I feel it's quite appropriate for this list, don't you?
"Let Them Eat War" by Bad Religion
This is a short "anti-war" song by pseudo-punk rock band Bad Religion. That's it!
"Star Wars" theme song
Come on, you knew THIS one was coming, DIDN'T you? Anyway, for those few who don't know what this song is, this is the classic theme song to the classic Star Wars films (at least BEFORE Disney got its "woke" hands on the film franchise!).
It goes without saying there are countless "war" songs either with "war" in the title and/or songs about "war", which are, of course, mostly "anti-war" songs.
I mean, I haven't heard many "pro-war" songs, have you? (Well, maybe by "death metal" bands like Slayer!)
