    Yes, but the music style don't match the topic, almost ballad inspired, but that's typically hk for you, I note that Radiohead had a protest song you and whose army 20 years ago alleged against Blair and new labour, but I also noted that ok computer
    album had political themes on one of their songs, nowadays, they don't use politics within their songs though

    For any song to be popular, even a protest song, it needs to be MOTR, accessible to as fans of as many genres as possible, otherwise it would just be faddish. For it to be an anthem, it needs to have longevity beyond current protests.

    Huh? PRC's socialist reality is sometimes, nah, often stranger than fiction.

    With the CCP annoyed with the popularity of Glory To Hong Kong, apparently at some point Goonius "motherland sausage" Ho was compelled to record a version with jingoistic pro-CCP lyrics only to have it taken down due to copyright infringement...
