Pink Floyd released The Wall in the 70's and the message is as relevant today as it was then, perhaps even more so with capitalist society pressuring all of us in different ways. Perhaps that is why the album continues to be one of the best.

Then there are all the other classics - Mother, Hey You, Comfortably Numb...
