1. Bob Dylan – „Masters of War“

„Come you masters of war/
You that build the big guns/
You that build the death planes/
You that build all the bombs/
You that hide behind walls/
You that hide behind desks/
I just want you to know/
I can see through your masks“

2. Udo Lindenberg – „Wozu sind Kriege da?“

„Keiner will sterben, das ist doch klar/
wozu sind denn dann Kriege da?
Herr Präsident, du bist doch einer von diesen Herren/
du musst das doch wissen/
kannst du mir das ‘mal erklären?
Keine Mutter will ihre Kinder verlieren/
und keine Frau ihren Mann/
Also warum müssen Soldaten losmarschieren?

3. Fleetwood Mac – „Peacekeeper“

„We make all of our sons the same/
Every one will suffer the fire we’ve made/
They all explode just the same/
And there’s no going back on the plans we’ve made.“

4. John Lennon – „Give Peace A Chance“

„All we are saying is give peace a chance“

5. Band für Afrika – „Nackt im Wind“

„Nur ‘n paar Breitengrade tiefer/
paar Längengrade dann nach links
stößt unsere Phantasie an Grenzen/
dort wo die stummsten Schreie sind
im Labyrinth unvorstellbar/
eiskalter Höllenlavastrom/
der keine Gnade kennt, nur zuschlägt/
der selten zögert, nie verschont/
hier fordern Sünden unsrer Ahnen/
unsere Stumpfheit ihren Tribut

6. Queen – „Hammer to Fall“

„For we who grew up tall and proud/
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud/
Convinced our voices can’t be heard/
We just wanna scream it louder and louder.“

7. Emerson, Lake & Powell – „Lay Down Your Guns“

„Lay down your guns I come in peace/
No need to run my friend into the trees/
We’ve been through this so much before/
But still we get it wrong.“

8. Graham Nash – „Military Madness“

„Military madness was killing my country/
Solitary sadness comes over me.“

9. Bob Dylan – „Blowin’ in the Wind“

„How many years must one man have/
before he can hear people cry/
How many deaths will it take till he knows/
too many people have died.“

10. Cat Stevens – „Peace Train“

„’Cause out on the edge of darkness/
There rides a peace train/
Oh, peace train take this country/
Come take me home again.“

11. Metallica – „One“

„Now that the war is through with me/
I’m waking up, I cannot see/
That there is not much left of me/
Nothing is real but pain now.“

12. Creedence Clearwater Revival – „Fortunate Son“

„Some folks are born made to wave the flag/
ooo, they’re red, white and blue/
And when the band plays ‘Hail to the Chief’/
ooo, they point the cannon at you, Lord.“

13. The Ramones – „Commando“

„They do their best, they do what they can/
They get them ready for Vietnam/
From old Hanoi to East Berlin/
Commando involved again.“

14. Stevie Nicks – „Soldier’s Angel“

„I am a soldier myself and no one walks away from this battle.“

15. U2 – „Sunday Bloody Sunday“

„And the battle’s just begun/
There’s many lost, but tell me who has won/
The trenches dug within our hearts/
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters/
Torn apart.“

16. Bob Marley – „War“

„That until there no longer/
First class and second class citizens of any nation/
Until the colour of a man’s skin/
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes/
Me say war.”

17. Michael Jackson  – „Earth Song“

„Did you ever stop to notice/
All the blood we’ve shed before/
Did you ever stop to notice/
This crying Earth, these weeping shores?“

18. Black Sabbath – „War Pigs“

„Politicians hide themselves away/
They only started the war/
Why should they go out to fight/
They leave that role to the poor.“

19. John Lennon  – „Imagine“

„Imagine there’s no countries/
It isn’t hard to do/
Nothing to kill or die for/
And no religion, too.“

Marvin Gaye – „What’s Going On“

„We don’t need to escalate/
You see, war is not the answer/
For only love can conquer hate/
You know we’ve got to find a way/
To bring some lovin’ here today.“

21. Black Eyed Peas – „Where is the Love“

„People killin’, people dyin’/
Children hurt can you hear them cryin’/
Can you practice what you preach/
And would you turn the other cheek?“
