Billy Bragg is hardly the only bloke to think of bringing punk and politics to the pub, but his incisive lyrics and unaffected, deadpan drawl resonate with socially conscious listeners born long after protest music's supposed heyday. Despite releasing a string of acclaimed albums in the '80s, Bragg didn't strike a chord with many American listeners until the troubadour scored a surprise hit with his 1998 collaboration with Wilco, Mermaid Avenue, an album that set unpublished lyrics by Woody Guthrie to original tunes. Bragg may be a Brit, but he's a natural choice to channel Guthrie's mix of righteous anger and poetic reverie.
