    So the songs have to be about one of the topics:
    - Poverty
    - Environment
    - War
    - Drug Abuse
    - Child Abuse

    There were a few other... But I just can't remember them.
    Of course, they have to explain one of the given topics.

    What we do is get the song,
    and then collect pictures that will depict the theme/meaning.

    I have no song xP.
    Seeing as this is a forum,
    the music community should have a good idea/choices of songs [​IMG]

    There's one with U2, but it is used... so no good.

    Black Sabbath - War Pigs

    It is an anti-war song. Specifically, the Vietnam War.

    About war:

    Iron Maiden - 2 Minutes to Midnight


    It's a reference to the Doomsday Clock's closest time to midnight, its anti-war.

    Drug Abuse:

    It talks about QotSA's experience in taking drugs to write songs

    Plus, the whole song itself is kinda dopey.

    War:

    Anti-nuclear, and most likely anti cold war, due to U.S. and U.S.S.R.'s nuclear arms race.
