“Who Cares Wins” by Anthrax (Hymns of Social Justice)

“Who Cares Wins” by Anthrax (Hymns of Social Justice) July 22, 2013

With the first installment of Hymns of Social Justice coming from Emmylou Harris, I wanted to follow that up with a heavy metal selection.

“Who Cares Wins” by Anthrax addresses homelessness in the late 1980s. It is gives particular attention to the way in which our society de-humanizes the homeless. The “State of Euphoria” album was a favorite of mine back in the sixth grade…but the social justice message of this song was lost on me until I re-discovered it in more recent years. The video adds to the social justice message as well.
