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.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtYfmUFwPEM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtYfmUFwPEM</a>

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

Edit: Always forget that https error.

Yep, how could I forget Rush?  Tom Saywer, Red Barchetta, Free Will, 2112, The Trees, etc.

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"
