Storyline

Documents the rise of a new generation of activist musicians who are living proof that music is a powerful tool in the ongoing struggle for social change. From the Dixie Chicks to Michael Franti to the punk band Anti-Flag, artists across the musical spectrum recount their motivations and struggles over the last decade, in a post-9/11 world where dissent has been silenced and censorship is commonplace. No ordinary music doc, this inspiring rockumentary draws on the power of music and insights of artists to help us understand our world and find the courage to speak out about issues that concern us all.

By far, best documentary I've ever seen!
11 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By far, this is the best documentary I have ever seen! From learning what these artists go thru on a daily basis just to be able to sing what they truly believe and at same time, make a decent living - made me gain so much more respect for them. This film taught me so many life lessons, including to never be afraid to take a stand for something you believe. Couldn't help but wonder after watching "Sounds Like a Revolution," Where is this "freedom of speech" that we hear so many great things about in America? And what exactly do our soldiers fight for if we never have it completely? If the US government makes it very difficult for any artist who wants to take a stand and sing against war or something else they strongly believe....So glad I watched this documentary as I'm more aware of what is really going on nowadays and now I can try and help make a change - for the better, at least!
