Libertarian Songs

A (moderately) comprehensive list of the best libertarian songs out there. We’ve tried to compile music with explicit libertarian, free market, Objectivist, agorist, or pro-capitalist themes, and also included music from avowed libertarian bands.

All these pro-freedom songs have been organized below by genre, and then alphabetical by artist/band name.

Please let us know in the comments if we’ve missed any good ones!
