Bob Dylan, "Hurricane"
Bob Dylan's tragic true story about boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter. Included on 1976's Desire, "Hurricane" profiled Carter's wrongful conviction for a triple homicide in 1966. Despite little evidence tying Carter and his friend to the crime scene, a jury still convicted the boxer. Dylan's song points out the police injustice in the case, and while the track helped gain support for a new trial, Carter was once again found guilty in 1976. Carter was finally released from prison almost 10 years later.
