Abstract

This thesis examines how young people in America have used particular songs, 'anthems,' to define themselves in the last fifty to sixty years. The researcher examines the context in which several songs that have remained in the public consciousness became popular, and what it was about a particular song that made it stand out at the time and remembered long after its release. Should be used by students who are interested in looking at the relationship between the arts, particularly music, and society.
