A detailed history of protest music, a genre that defined the twentieth century. According to Lynskey, the foundational work of this genre was "Strange Fruit," which Billie Holiday first performed in 1939. In this song, denouncing and quality meet in an ignominious situation. Pete Seegen, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan were pioneers of careers that would relieve REM, U2, and Bruce Springsteen. Because, at a certain point, popular music and denounces seemed inseparable. Lynskey addresses this relationship by describing the social movement that relied on the music to spread his message.  Una historia detallada de la canción protesta, uno de los géneros musicales que mejor han definido el siglo XX. Para Lynskey, la obra fundacional de este género es "Strange Fruit" que Billie Holiday interpretó por primera vez en 1939. En esa canción se reunían la calidad musical y la denuncia de una situación ignominiosa. Es importante insistir en esa reunión de calidad musical y denuncia porque éste es el criterio que rige este libro por encima de otras consideraciones. Pete Seegen, Joan Baez o Bob Dylan fueron pioneros de una carrera en la que los relevarían REM, U2 o Springsteen. Porque, al llegar a cierto punto, música popular y denuncia parecen indisociables. Lynskey se ocupa de esta relación describiendo los movimientos sociales que se apoyaron en la música para difundir su mensaje.


"British music critic Dorian Lynskey offers a completely absorbing look at 33 songs, spanning seven decades and hailing from five continents...Comprehensive and beautifully written." —Booklist, starred review, on the English-language edition
