Description
Bob Dylan famously rejected his protest folk singer image with 1964's "Maggie's Farm" - a protest song against protest songs. But between his first four albums and a few instances of returning to the form later in his career ("Hurricane," "Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)," and "George Jackson"), Dylan's catalog still contains an impressive list of protest anthems. Whether he was singing for those suffering from injustice, or revolutionizing music itself, Dylan's legacy of fighting the good fight lives on.
