There are references in the Salon.com editorial to the Finn Brothers and their music including a tribute to the 'heartbreaking minor-key melody and defiant lyrics' of Won't Give In.

This is probably of interest to some readers of this forum.

It's up to the readers to ignore/disagree with the political content of the article if they wish. No one if forcing them to read it.
I find this fascinating because the author -- just like many of us at different times -- has turned to the Finns to help him deal with disappointment. I read an interview once in which Neil spoke of the "secret lives" that songs have, how they take on new dimensions within people's lives. And here is a perfect example: a political writer, upset at the results of the election, finds comfort/wisdom/inspiration in "Won't Give In." The Finns are barely mentioned in mainstream American media, much less in political coverage, yet here they are, front and center.
