Content as a Catalyst – Do we really need more controversial artists and material in the music industry? 5 (1)

Content as a Catalyst

Recently we had an article on the site which included an interview with Ed Greens. In this interview, he said “…music is music and resistance is resistance, therefore music can never replace resistance or activism…” This response struck me as particularly potent and got me thinking.
