One of the great anti-establishment rock anthems of all time, Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” was released in 1979.
“Another Brick in the Wall” is the title of three songs set to variations of the same basic theme, on Pink Floyd’s 1979 rock opera, The Wall, subtitled Part 1 (working title “Reminiscing”), Part 2 (working title “Education”), and Part 3 (working title “Drugs”). All parts were written by Pink Floyd’s bassist, Roger Waters.
That single, as well as the album The Wall, were banned in South Africa in 1980 after the song was adopted by supporters of a nationwide school boycott protesting racial inequities in education under the apartheid regime. (Source – Wikipedia)
