From Publishers Weekly
The protest song reached its zenith in 1960s America when Bob Dylan,
Buffalo Springfield, Country Joe and the Fish, Jimi Hendrix, and Joan
Baez wrote popular songs to protest American involvement in the Vietnam
War and the mistreatment of social and economic groups. In some cases
-- Dylan's "Masters of War," P.F. Sloan's "Eve of Destruction,"
Country Joe McDonald's "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag"
-- the songs became anthems that defined a generation, confirming the
idea that popular music could indeed bring people together to promote
a common cause for the common good.
