Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent

Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent is the second full length album by Swedish hardcore punk band Refused. It was released in 1996 through Burning Heart Records. A remastered version of the album was released in 2004.

The lyrics came from a left wing revolutionary perspective, and dealt with the subjects of bourgeois morality, homophobia, dependence (chemical and otherwise), animal rights, the press, and the futility of 'representative democracy'.

The techniques, motives and musical ideas found on this album in their rudimentary form developed into what was heard on their next album, The Shape of Punk to Come.

The name of the album is taken from a text and songbook made by Industrial Workers of the World activist Joe Hill in 1909.
