    Sodom - agent orange

    Alice in chains - rooster

    Metallica - one

    Megadeth - holy wars (writen about northern Ireland)

    Black Sabbath - hand of doom

    Sepultura - refuse/resist

    Strapping young lad - aftermath

    My favourite and the one that I find has the most profound impact is probably pink Floyd's "the hero's return" though.

    Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride is a long held favourite of mine, though arguably more anti-conscription than anti-war.

    Not what this forum is for. Locked.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.
