1. In 1969, I was 12. I attended a party at my Aunt's house and there were people there that I didn't know. Someone turned on the radio to KHJ and I heard my first song by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young; Suite: Judy Blue Eyes. Upon being a fan and listening to other songs, I found they were a group that sang about political and social issues, like the song, Ohio, regarding the event at Kent State. That is my preamble. From the following list of groups, which are your favorite "Protest" bands?
