Music and the bathroom bill

Something  that have found really interesting that has happened the past few months is how musicians act to injustices in society. One of the greatest examples of this in the news right now are bands canceling shows in North Carolina due to the states bathroom bill that prevents people who identify as a gender different than the one they were born with from using the bathroom of the gender they identify with. Huge acts such as Bruce Springsteen, Pearl jam, and Maroon 5, have all cancelled sold out shows in the state to make a statement about the bill. This boycotting of the state from prominent artists is really intriguing to me. It makes me wonder if the lack of prominent artists can actually make change with a subject that has so much conflict and different ideals.
