Absolutely Nothin. I'll say it again.

Hey Here some oldies for ya on war.

War Pigs by Black Sabbath when Ozzy was a Rock Singer not a Schlock Singer.
Sky Pilot By Eric Burden - Note the sound effects at the end. And then of
course Eric Burden and War.
Hard Rains Gonna Fall - Dylan and others
Only Nineteen - Redgum

technology and change
Social justice

Someone mentioned the Kinks - All God's Children - Bside to Lola
Everybody's A Star album eg Complicated Life. Ray is just brilliant.
Starting from the earlier songs like Waterloo Sunset, Deadend Street and
Well Respected Man. Proved that Rock can be more than just love songs.
