a way of banding the hoipolloy together.
Aka esprit de corps
convincing the people that the world is dangerous and scary and

During era of company owned coal mining towns, the brass found that
diversionary activities (e.g. sports) reduced workers'
focus/complaints upon company activities.
Today, with Facebook, Internet, sports, and other diversionary

but tend to lack views on both sides of a topic.
Today, I'm not aware of musicians diving into politics...most likely,
record companies herd them away from this venue.
