THE 50 GREATEST REVOLUTIONARY SONGS
To the barricades! Yes, it’s our pick of a half-century’s worth of classic rebel-rousing tunes.
In 1968, the world experienced waves of street protests: civil rights marches in the US, student riots in Paris, anti-war demos in London and beyond. From these, music gained a new sound of fury. Not just introverted dismay, but outward rage and resistance. The world is still not perfect and the tradition has persisted for half a century. To celebrate, the Q writing staff elect the 50 greatest revolutionary songs of the last 50 years.
