Megaphone’s are great for protests. In fact, there is a good chance that if someone is singing a protest song, walking in a demonstration, or marching for a cause, a ThunderPower Megaphone is probably somewhere nearby. Almost daily, ThunderPower, the most powerful bullhorn in the industry, is being used by protesters demonstrating against everything from politics to petroleum.
But why are ThunderPower Megaphones so popular with people who have something to say and need to be heard? It’s probably because ThunderPower bullhorns are considered one of the best voice amplification tools on the planet, able to project the range of the human voice much further than non-battery powered megaphones. In addition, because ThunderPower Megaphones are so well made, they can take the punishment of even the most chaotic environment.

Ten of America’s Most Famous Protest Songs
bullhorns are so popular at rallies, demonstrations, and marches, we thought it
might be interesting to share some of the top protest songs in America’s history
according to a recent poll by RollingStone Magazine.
One: “Masters of War” by Bob Dylan
While it was
President Dwight D. Eisenhower that warned the country about the dangers of a “military-industrial
complex”, it was Bob Dylan who wrote his protest song that funneled his
anger at arms dealers who were making a fortune and spreading their money all around
“Ohio” by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
Young saw a photo of a 14-year-old girl kneeling over the dead body of a Kent
State student, he poured his rage and sadness into the song he called
“Ohio”. A day after he wrote the song, he called his bandmates (Crosby,
Stills, Nash and Young) into the studio to record the new song.
“For What It’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield
people think that Stephen Stills wrote “For What It’s Worth” about
Vietnam, it was a protest song in support of Hollywood’s Sunset Strip hippies
who fought the police over a potential new curfew.
“The Times They Are a Changin” by Bob Dylan
a few weeks after John F. Kennedy’s death and just a few months before the
Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed, Bob Dylan beautifully summed up massive
cultural changes he was witnessing in a three-minute folk song.
“Eve of Destruction” by Barry McGuire
Sloan wrote the “Eve of Destruction” in 1965, Barry McGuire quickly took
the song to reflect the early days of the Vietnam war, the Cuban Missile Crisis
and widespread fear of a nuclear war that would destroy the world.
“Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine
“Killing in the Name” combines a
unique fusion of rap and rock and was released in 1992. It’s a furious song
about racism, police brutality and defiance, culminating in a furious cry. This
song stirs a crowd like no other song in human history.
“Blowing in the Wind” by Bob Dylan
“Blowin’ in the Wind” is
considered one of the most popular protest songs of all time. It’s been
translated into at least a dozen languages, featured in many movies and played
live 2,500 times by Dylan alone.
“Fortunate Son” by Creedence Clearwater Revival
wrote “Fortunate Son” 45 years ago, but it continues to move people.
Ironically, the artist actually served in the Army Reserves and wrote the song
about how rich families made sure their own children never made their way to
Vietnam. Like most great protest songs, it’s as relevant today as it was on the
day of its release.
“Hurricane” by Bob Dylan
years from writing his last protest song, Bob Dylan returned again to write
about Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, a professional boxer in jail for a
murder he claimed he didn’t commit. The tune is an impassioned eight-minute piece
about Hurricane’s ordeal.
Number Ten: “I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-to-Die Rag” by Country Joe and the Fish
A straightforward and simple song, Country Joe McDonald spoke for young people all over America when he released the anti-Vietnam classic “I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-To-Die Rag.” “One, two, three, what are we fighting for?” he sang. “Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn/Next stop is Vietnam.” The song exploded when the artist sang an impromptu rendition at Woodstock.
