Your critical guide to arts, culture and going out in the capital

Win a one-year Spotify Premium subscription

Michael Jackson, Fela Kuti or even Justin Bieber... Which artists and songs have changed the world?

We've launched a brand-new feature, ‘100 songs that changed history’, and to celebrate we've teamed up with Spotify to offer 50 – that's right, 50 – one-year Spotify Premium subscriptions!

Inspired by Pete Seeger's quote that ‘the right song at the right time can change history’, Time Out assembled a panel of musicians, historians and enthusiasts to debate and collate the 100 songs which have had the most significant impact on real-world events – culturally, socially and politically.

Explore the feature to find out which artists made the cut, read more about all the songs, watch videos, download tracks and have your say.

We've also created a Spotify playlist that features a selection of the songs from the list. Spotify gives you instant access to over 15 million tracks - on your computer, your mobile or wherever else you listen to your favourite tunes. Find out more at
