Are Midnight Oil the last great mainstream political band? Rage Against The Machine maybe, and Springsteen never went away. but the Oils have never wavered. All those baby boomers thought nothing of their rock stars treating the stage as much as a platform for spreading their message as it was for performance, but as the 80s spawned MTV politics were somehow considered distasteful when there were soft drinks and cars to sell. Yet, Peter Garrett and Midnight Oils were not for turning - whether it was Aboriginal rights and corporate greed or workers rights and the environment (before it became trendy) no one stood firm like these guys. Respect.
