It is common to hear people say rock and roll music has lost its edge. Disillusioned by the sound of modern pop radio, many fans wonder why a revolutionary voice has not yet emerged to define these tumultuous times the way Bob Dylan, The Clash, and Public Enemy once did. In many people’s minds, rock and roll is dead, killed off by Britney Spears and an MTV that has taken the music out of television.Rock ’N’ Politics aims to breathe new life into the spirit of rock and roll. It explains how the virtues of great political action are present in great rock music. By surveying the contemporary music scene in chapters about Bruce Springsteen, Green Day, Bono, Madonna, indie rock, and OutKast, Rock ’N’ Politics reveals how rock music recently lost touch with its political ambitions and explains how musicians and fans can-and must-restore rock and roll’s revolutionary voice.In an era characterized by lackluster rock music and uninspiring politics, Rock ’N’ Politics captures the excitement of world-changing rock and roll for a generation longing for music that matters. Written with intelligence and a passion for rock and roll music from all styles and eras, Rock ’N’ Politics offers readers a new perspective on a subject crucial to our times.

No solemos encontrar indicaciones respecto de la Dinámica (forte, piano; crescendo, iminuendo...), el Tempo (andante, allegro... accellerando, ritardando...). Incluso la Articulación (clave d...
