Protest music - music not only of outright propaganda but also of persuasion, rebellion, criticism, and a desire for change - has a long and multifaceted history in America. Though strongly associated with the Vietnam era, the history of protest music is as old as recorded music itself, and crosses over every era and genre of music. In "The Highway Is Alive Tonight", author Marc Leverette charts the history of political music from the turn-of-the-century labor struggles to the Depression era, from the civil rights era to the resurgence of the proletariat song, and pays close attention to the politicized themes of the grunge movement, Hip-Hop, feminist rock, and other movements of the modern day.
