Now we start getting into it. Vietnam. Turbulence in American culture. 1969 was the year of Woodstock, after all. The music from this era is so politically charged that you almost don’t notice it (because it is so prevalent). Jefferson Airplane was one of the most popular rock bands in the late 1960s and this is their best song.
