Bob Dylan -- 9% of your votes

I can't think of any artist who has inspired more change in civil rights, politics, & the anti-war movement. Because he brought so many young people into the arenas, he influenced the future: as his young audience became active & remained active as they matured into influential people themselves. His songs of protest were calls to right the wrongs in society, not to break society down. "Oxford Town" & "A Hard Rain's Gonna' Fall" demonstrate his passion & morality more than my words can ever do.
