Cry For Freedom by White Lion
During the era when 80s hair metal bands sang about hot girls, fast cars, broken love & good times White Lion stood out. They sang this song about? war, racism, freedom struggle & apartheid. They recorded these occasional songs about broken homes, the affect of war & strife on children and even a song about the Rainbow Warrior, a Greenpeace ship that that was destroyed by operatives of the French intelligence service. This concern for political and social issues made them unique among the bands of the mid to late 80s.
