Explore the music tied to some of the most iconic moments in history - from the March on Washington to the riots at Stonewall, the moon landing to Hurricane Katrina - music has played an integral part in celebrating, criticising, and amplifying seismic events in collective history. September 11, 2001, forever lives in infamy for New Yorkers and all Americans. Billy Joel's New York State of Mind and Sister Sledge's We Are Family took on heightened new meaning of camaraderie. But the tragedy that united the country quickly divided it. Country music took centre stage as the politically charged music of the moment - with patriotism in the case of Brooks and Dunn, or in a pro-war message in the case of Toby Keith. When the Dixie Chicks found themselves caught in the crossfire after upsetting their fan base, it became clear that the wounds of 9/11 weren't quick to heal.
