class conscious music?

The old war protest song “Fortunate Son” be Creedence Clearwater Revival has lyrics that hint at the class differences between people….whatever happened to those songs? This song by CCR was very popular (maybe number 2 on the billboard charts)…but these days what popular songs address class differences as well as this one?  I am bit surprised at the lack of songs that address issues of class (or society in general).  I am not a child of the 60s or 70s, but a part of me admires the people of those decades who produced and consumed such politically relevant material.
