Most rock bands tend to lean left, but a few have written songs with conservative lyrics. Here's one that has been in my head for the last few days, given the asshattery coming from Antifa and other groups:

What are some other ones y'all have noticed?

Hatebreed
All That Remains
FUCKING SLAYER
Tool and Perfect Circle are actually level to neutral
Same with Deftones

I'll think of some more in a little bit.

Nothing conservative about Hatebreed. They started in Connecticut hardcore scene which is overwhelmingly Antifa types.

Pretty decent social commentary. Not sure if it was meant to be conservative though. Couple verses...

Monster/Suicide/America

And though the past has it's share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Our cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand
We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner
We can't pay the cost
'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watching

One of my favorites in live versions.

2112 is based on Ayn Rand's classic Anthem ( which is about as long as the average chapter in any of her novels. ).

Fuckin' disgusting like two crack whores with gash gushing.
Ain't no tellin' who be tellin' keep bellin', I'm past fussin'.
Fuck 'em, I found a new love my .357 and my best little back up  a black Smith and Wesson.
I got a Glock 19 with a lazer inside.
And I'm the one you need to watch for when we go on a ride.
I'm ridin' shotgun slumped with the shotgun pumped and if I spot one jump then the shotgun dump.
Get Some!

I don't go anywhere without my switchblade,
I don't go anywhere without my crew.
I don't go anywhere without no protection,
I don't go anywhere without my weapons.

The rest of the album is pretty good.  Dave's recent interviews have been very anit-Hussein and anti federal government.

ETA:  I swear Dave has a fuckin time machine.  He knows where this is going.

It's more Objectivist or libertarian than the C Word. Great song with great lyrics. The problem with the C Word is that some people claiming to be it aren't consistent on issues of liberty. This is more directed at the OP than you.

Not Rock, but worthy;

Failed To Load Title


There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
Long before the white man and long before the wheel
When the green dark forest was too silent to be real

But time has no beginnings and hist'ry has no bounds
As to this verdant country they came from all around
They sailed upon her waterways and they walked the forests tall
And they built the mines the mills and the factories for the good of us
All

And when the young man's fancy was turnin' to the spring
The railroad men grew restless for to hear the hammers ring
Their minds were overflowing with the visions of their day
And many a fortune lost and won and many a debt to pay

For they looked in the future and what did they see
They saw an iron road runnin' from sea to the sea
Bringin' the goods to a young growin' land
All up through the seaports and into their hands

Look away said they across this mighty land
From the eastern shore to the western strand
Bring in the workers and bring up the rails
We gotta lay down the tracks and tear up the trails
Open 'er heart let the life blood flow
Gotta get on our way 'cause we're movin' too slow

Bring in the workers and bring up the rails
We're gonna lay down the tracks and tear up the trails
Open 'er heart let the life blood flow
Gotta get on our way 'cause we're movin' too slow
Get on our way 'cause we're movin' too slow

Behind the blue Rockies the sun is declinin'
The stars, they come stealin' at the close of the day
Across the wide prairie our loved ones lie sleeping
Beyond the dark oceans in a place far away

We are the navvies who work upon the railway
Swingin' our hammers in the bright blazin' sun
Livin' on stew and drinkin' bad whiskey
Bendin' our old backs 'til the long days are done

We are the navvies who work upon the railway
Swingin' our hammers in the bright blazin' sun
Layin' down track and buildin' the bridges
Bendin' our old backs 'til the railroad is done

So over the mountains and over the plains
Into the muskeg and into the rain
Up the St. Lawrence all the way to Gaspe
Swingin' our hammers and drawin' our pay
Drivin' 'em in and tyin' 'em down
Away to the bunkhouse and into the town
A dollar a day and a place for my head
A drink to the livin' and a toast to the dead

Oh the song of the future has been sung
All the battles have been won
O'er the mountain tops we stand
All the world at our command
We have opened up the soil
With our teardrops and our toil

For there was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
Long before the white man and long before the wheel
When the green dark forest was too silent to be real
When the green dark forest was too silent to be real
And many are the dead men too silent to be real.

Pretty much anything by Sabaton?  They sing a lot of about military history and we all know how much the left hates that.

However, they are from Sweden, so what their personal politics are, I can't say.

EDIT:  Doesn't look like I can post a link.  Just search Sabaton: Primo Victoria (song about Operation Overlord)

I agree on it being an awesome album. "About Mrs. Leslie" is another of my favorite songs, it's just so damn weird, in a good way.

I remember when I bought the CD when it came out and put it in the CD player and saw the display showing like 50-some tracks, I was like so after the last listed one played I kept hitting the next button till I found it. Still have the CD around here somewhere or another.
