Performer Webpages

  1. If you're having trouble thinking of a performer, check out this Wikipedia article on Music and politicsThe connection between music and politics, particularly political expression in song, has been seen in many cultures. Music can express anti-establishment or protest themes, including anti-war songs, but pro-establishment ideas are also represented, for example, in national anthems, patriotic songs, and political campaigns. Many of these types of songs could be described as topical songs.

  2. Most performers have a website. Remember to Google your performer and check out their webpage.

  3. Finally, remember to see if your performer has been inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame. There are many fabulous articles on their site. The Rock Hall Library and Archives also have a wide range of research guides available, including one on protest music.
