Wednesday Question: Songs That Changed The World
Music has the power to change the world - and you're about to prove that. There have been some wildly influential bands over the decades, but often their greatest success came from releasing a certain song at a particular moment in time. Often by coincidence, they resonated with culture in a way they couldn't at any other time in history, and inspired an entire generations. Sometimes they have a negative effect, even when the artist never intended it. Either way, the world was never the same again. This week's question is: What songs have changed the world more than any other? Stuck for ideas? How about the anti - monarchy anthem "God Save The Queen" by the Sex Pistols which inspired British teenagers to revolt against the upper classes; Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" which became a call-to-arms for the independent music scene and nudged the major labels to invest in underground artists through the early 90s; John Lennon's "Imagine" which echoes through the decades and questions our relationship with God and each other. You'll be hard pressed to find niche tracks for this question, but if you can make a case for a relatively unknown classic that you can justify as having a indirect influence on the world, go for it. Post your nominations in the comments, and remember to upvote anything you agree with. We'll stack up the results and post them on Friday.
