1. Kings and Queens / Thirty Seconds To Mars
If you ever need a pick-me-up, Thirty Seconds to Mars is there. Their brand of anthemic rock music, tinged with revolution can inspire you to do a work-out, get up earlier or even run for office. While listening to this track, you could do anything.
Best lyric: "In defense of our dreams / we were the kings and queens of promise."
2. Waking Up / OneRepublic
This song has a lot of truth in it. And that's the first step to revolution and change. Figuring out what you need to do only comes after you've realized what you did wrong. And this song nails that overloaded sentiment.
Best lyric: "We cut ties / we tell lies / we wan't change / and we want to claim where we feel."
3. Reptilia / The Strokes
The guitar line alone could incite a riot. This song is great as an early morning alarm or even a late-night study session track. You can't avoid feeling alive and excited when hearing this song. It is a testament to the fact that The Strokes' music could totally be used as jet fuel.
Best lyric: "I said please / don't slow me down / If I'm going too fast."
4. 99 Revolutions / Green Day
This is an ode to the 99% and it embodies revolution in the most traditional sense. It makes you really think about what's going on in the world and how you could possibly change it. Green Day is a band that sets things on fire. I mean, look at American Idiot, that song ignited a generation.
Best Lyric: "
5. Barbarians / The Libertines
This is a wild track from the band's new album. And it makes you want to get up and move. I'm not sure why, but it reminds me a lot of a pump-up song you'd hear before a sporting-event. Strongly encourage anyone with motivation issues to grab on to this one.
Best Lyric: "All i want is to scream out loud / and have it out with a better crowd"
If you put your mind to it, your revolution could start right now.
