Readers' Rock List: Freedom Songs


On Friday, Rock Daily was pondering Lil Wayne's impending trip to prison — and T.I.'s last days of incarceration — and asked our readers to muse on the concept of "Freedom" for our Weekend Rock List. The results are in, and they are pretty literal: seven of the Top 10 tracks include the word "Free," though Bob Marley's inspiring "Redemption Song" and Aretha Franklin's "Think" also made the cut. Check out the list and our gallery of rock-star mug shots:
1. Neil Young - "Rockin' In The Free World"
2. Lynyrd Skynyrd - "Free Bird"
3. Tom Petty - "Free Fallin'"
4. Rush - "Freewill"
5. Queen - "I Want To Break Free"
6. R.E.M. - "Radio Free Europe"
7. Rage Against The Machine - "Freedom"
8. Bob Marley - "Redemption Song"
9. Bob Dylan - "I Shall Be Released"
10. Aretha Franklin - "Think"
