We agree with Pete Seeger’s assertion that ‘The right song at the right time can change history’: so much so, that we have compiled a list of 100 songs which have had a significant impact on real-world events. With the help of a panel of musicians, historians and enthusiasts we left no stone unturned to find the cultural, social and political musical corkers for your listening and learning pleasure. Read the entries, download tracks, watch the videos and fight amongst yourself about whether or not we are right. In fact, let us know if you see history differently by commenting below or tweet us @TimeOutLondon.
