Awesome Anti-Fascist Anthems: a Playlist

The featured image on this post comes from the essay written by Umberto Eco, one of the way too many great artists that we have lost over this screwed up year. If you apply these criteria to your own country, I am sure you will agree that we need this playlist. (Feel free to add your own expletives at this point).

Obviously there are many fine anti-fascist songs that are not yet on this list (Blaggers ITA are forthcoming, I promise), and I appreciate any suggestions, ideally accompanied by links. (I have in mind a history-in-music playlist, of songs by or about resisters of fascism in the 20th century…)
