Various artists have written some political or politically-tinged songs, although most are not heavily political. Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA", or Billy Joel's "Allentown", for example.

Jackson Brown has written a few political songs ("For America"), as has Don Henley ("All She Wants To Do Is Dance", "I Will Not Go Quietly").

Bruce Cockburn, especially "If I Had a Rocket Launcher" and "They Call It Democracy".

Manfred Mann's Earth Band, especially the whole second half of their "Somewhere in Afrika" album. 

That's off the top of my head.  I used to have a list somewhere of political songs, if I could just find it.

Rush.

Neil Pert writes the lyrics, he's an overt anarcho-capitalist. Or at least minarchist.

Edit: Always forget that https error.

Boy, i have a ton.
Mentallo and the Fixer are an industrial band with free market anarchist beliefs.
Many metal bands have written at least one song with anti government themes,
Fourth Reich by Stratovarius, Judas by Helloween, Kalmah has quite a few, especially on For the Revoloution, Warbringers newest album is FULL of anti gov lyrics,  Toxic's album Think this is a classic.
Oh, and of course, Liberteer,
"Let not the hounds of the government deny your liberty
Or allow statist propaganda to dissuade you from what you could be"

Any opinion on these lyrics?

aka Raymond J Raupers Jr USA

Album:  Anarcho-Capitalism Or Else

Song: Obama Out Of Ukraine


OBAMA OUT OF UKRAINE 

Anarcho-Capitalism can not be established,
by any manner of collective action.
 
It's earned by individuals rejecting the norm.

Collapsed civilization,
pearls before swine,

Each and every plague,
pearls before swine.

Civilized pride means hating your freedom.
History proves it.
What the fuck are you doing?

Government facade socialist psychopathy.
Central banks own every tyrant and fascist.
You know fucking well, history proves it.

Who should own you?
What the fuck are you doing? 

Government don't exist,
neither should it.

Government can't be created,
neither should it.

You can't force people,
under one system,
perpetual slavery,
and yet they seek it.

There you stand begging,
for more weight in chains.
Fuck your self loathing,
fuck all your pain. 
Fuck all your hope. 
Fuck all your change.   

Die.
Fucking die already. 
I'm tired of your "change".
Your fucking "hope",
is fucking deranged. 

You've got what you needed,
you've always been free. 
Truth is you don't want it,   
you take more from me.   

Die.
Fucking die already. 
I'm tired of your "change".
Your fucking "hope",
is fucking deranged.

Wise up or regret it,
Obama out of Ukraine. 
By any means necessary. 
Obama out of Ukraine.
Wise up...or regret it.
