  1. Two great songs on this list: “For What It’s Worth” by Stephen Stills and Buffalo Springfield, an iconic protest song that’s still relevant 54 years later and Dylan’s “My Back Pages” by the Byrds. McGuinn’s guitar break was pretty simple but stuck in my head for years. Crosby hated the song and regretted his contribution. He wanted MORE political activism, not a retreat into political disengagement as this song preached.
