This article is inspired by recent regional events in the Middle East (Tunisia, Egypt, etc) which gives truth to the ‘Power to the People’ saying and shows that the Arab World is crying out for revolution, opposing tyranny and standing up to oppression.

I put together this Metal playlist with 20 revolution songs with various lyrical topics such as oppression, war, freedom, brotherhood, determination and resistance amongst others. I am counting on you readers to add your suggestions in the comments.
