Bob Marley wrote a protest song called "Zimbabwe" and three years later he performed it at the first Zimbawean Independence Day celebration in 1980, that is almost mythical!

Now do you get the idea?

Think of artists that have brought about some kind of change, and it can be good or bad..
oh please!

Music plays a major role in defining social paradigms. It's a bit of snobbery not to recognize that role in providing the backdrop of contemporary life.

who else dethroned Michael Jackson? Nirvana was like the Beatles, they REVOLUTIONIZED the mainstream music business, changing the perspective of what the suits would sell us. They used to sell us what THEY wanted to hear, after Nirvana there was a revival of selling us what WE wanted to hear.

I still say that in the past 50 years it is a tie between Elvis Presley, Bob Marley, and Michael Jackson.

well, drop Elvis and I agree with you entirely! Marley gave voice to actual revolution worldwide, and MJ gave us a soundtrack we could universally dance too and in small way mutually understand each other on at least the common ground of mass-market commercialism

ahhh, but Elvis ushered in an the era of YOUTH CULTURE worldwide, before Marley and MJ, and without him there'd be no them.
Not a big fan of his tunage, but respect is due.

it's fully true, fighting against the beatles(and alot of other cultural things in general) turned the young the young generation against the government, so they when it was time for them to run it.....

everyone went and got beatles records on the black market anyways, anyone in their 50s will tell you that they hated being a criminal just because they wanted to listen to a stupid pop record
