1984? Songs the relate! Please Help!?

If you have read 1984, could you please help me find some songs that relate(lyrics) to the book. I would really like if the songs are by bands/groups we hear commonly on the radio, as in modern day music.

    holiday by green day. it's about hypothetical conformity by force

    "Sieg Heil to the president Gasman

    Bombs away is your punishment

    Pulverize the Eiffel towers

    Who criticize your government

    Bang bang goes the broken glass and

    Kill all the fags that don't agree

    Trials by fire, setting fire

    Is not a way that's meant for me"

    Welcome to 1984 - Anti Flag

    really the only thing that comes to mind..

    its pretty much about how the book is kind of coming true..

    here are the lyrics:

    Who would Jesus bomb? Yeah, who would Jesus kill?

    The double talk is past surreal

    The word of god is now the word of hate

    War is peace, and freedom is the police state

    Can't you see the writing on the wall?

    Democracy lays trampled on the floor...

    You better believe that...

    Hell yeah I'm confused for sure what I thought was the New Millennium is 1984!

    Mr. Orwell from the grave, adding fresh ink to the page

    As the unpresident declares an endless war...

    Welcome to 1984!

    Feels like Nazi Germany, and Hitler on TV,

    As the unpresident spews his homophobic speech

    Didn't the Allies fight a war to end extremist fascist law

    So tell me NOW what the **** are we fighting for?

    I just can not take it anymore

    Democracy lays trampled on the floor...

    Man, isn't freedom great?!?!

    Hell yeah I'm confused for sure what I thought was the New Millennium is 1984!

    Mr. Orwell from the grave, adding fresh ink to the page

    As the unpresident declares an endless war...

    Now we've got...

    Armies of peace, armed to the teeth, delivering death to make the world a better place

    So celebrate the weapons spending, say a toast to Armageddon, raise some hell!

    We're all headed straight to hell!!!

    Hell yeah I'm confused for sure what I thought was the New Millennium is 1984!

    Mr. Orwell from the grave, adding fresh ink to the page

    As the unpresident declares an endless war...

    Welcome to 1984!

    i wish i could think of something better.....

Cant get extra advantageous than that...i think they have been going to make a play out of it and characteristic his song in it....dont understand if that ever happend or no longer! good success!
