I'm thinking about investigating the language of protest songs from pre-2000 to current protest songs (and how they intend to use the language to impact the thoughts of others at the time)..... does this seem like a good idea?

does anyone have any ideas to help/add to this e.g specific songs or how I can investigate the language?

For A2 coursework

Great idea(coming from a past English Graduate and English Teacher. )
Will you be looking at specific genre of songs?
Specific Messages that was being portrayed?
Was the meaning of the song the meaning intended by the writer?


If you choose songs across all genres then you'll have more to compare and contrast, for example looking at someone like Greenday who in their own way protested in American Idiot.
Or Sam Cook, Change is a gonna come...
There is a vast amount to look and if you do this work. I would love to have a read, Good luck.
