Pushback [OregonMuse]

Traditionally, the imperatives of rock and roll music have been: indulge your desires, lose your inhibitions, take off your clothes, do what feels good, don't pay any attention to what parents, ministers or other authority figures tell you, they just want to stop you from having fun, etc.

Especially the taking off your clothes part. It's another method that men use to coax women into getting naked.

All of this is, of course, civilizationally unsustainable, and there's a price to be paid for this nonsense. And occasionally, the reality of this breaks through the dense cloud of fog such lifestyles tend to produce and there's a little pushback, not much, but it's definitely there.

Here's a Ben Folds Five number about driving your girlfriend to the abortion clinic. Not a happy song:

Finally, a surprising song about sexual purity and waiting for marriage, by the Georgia Satellites:

There are other examples of pushback out there. Which ones are your favorites?
