Best friends and roommates devise a number of schemes in the hopes of getting their band booked to play a show at the Rivoli, a modest Toronto club.

In an effort to raise awareness about the band, Matt and Jay drop a huge banner across from The Rivoli. It turns out to be more revealing than originally planned.

On July 20, 1969 an estimated 600 million people all over the world watched astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the moon for the first time. The moonwalk inspired musicians from David Bowie and the Byrds to Parliament - Funkadelic and Sun Ra to imagine a cosmic future for mankind. However, once the Cold War space race had been won, popular interest in space exploration waned rapidly - as reflected in songs by Elton John and Gil Scott-Heron. In December 1972, NASA launched its final manned mission to the moon, and we have never gone back since. Almost half a century after the moon landing, while our deep yearning to explore the universe lives on in the realm of art and music, its most profound legacy may be the perspective it gave us on our own planet and who we are as a species.

The LGBT movement in America began one night in late June on the streets of Greenwich Village, New York, in a bar called the Stonewall Inn. When police raided the place, gay men and women who had been made to live in the shadows of shame finally decided to fight back against the police, and to demand their civil rights. Bars and dance clubs were - and still are - places of refuge for LGBT people, and the music played on jukeboxes, from Judy Garland to Gloria Gaynor, has also been a vital aspect of the LGBT experience over the past five decades. Although the 1980s and 90s brought the AIDS crisis and anti-gay legislation that threatened the LGBT community, it only strengthened the resolve of activists - and artists - to push harder. Some musicians incorporated aspects of LGBT life into their lyrics. Others have furthered the cause of equality simply by coming out of the closet. This is a struggle that is not over, but with allies in popular culture like Lady Gaga, this episode shows the power of music to raise awareness and to preach tolerance.

The famous tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs was a galvanising moment for the women's movement. Billie Jean's win was an affirmation to all the women who felt underestimated as simply mothers and housewives. The music of the 1960s and '70s, from Helen Reddy to Leslie Gore to Aretha Franklin was also a kind of subversive force in delivering to women messages of strength and empowerment. The sexual revolution ushered in more provocative music that gave women permission to let loose; Loretta Lynn's The Pill was an outright ode to the wonders of contraception and how freeing it was. Feminism in music has taken many forms, just as the women's movement itself has waxed and waned over the decades. But from Pat Benatar to Salt-N-Pepa to Katy Perry, each generation of young women has found strength and solidarity in female artists who have literally given them a voice.

The death of Martin Luther King Jr marked a turning point in the civil rights movement, a moment of reckoning for African Americans in the United States. After the mourning, the community gathered its strength to continue King's fight, inspired by the fiery protest of Nina Simone, the black power anthems of James Brown, and the extraordinary voice of Aretha Franklin. The continued struggle for civil rights has been a long and uneven battle since 1968, but the spirit of resistance has been kept alive in the music, from Stevie Wonder's campaign to establish a Martin Luther King Holiday to Kendrick Lamar's searing protest song that became an anthem for the Black Lives Matter movement. The music in this episode both celebrates the strength and solidarity of the African American experience, while reminding us how far we still have to go.

In a truly unimaginable act of police brutality, national guardsmen shot and killed four college students in an anti-war protest on the Kent State campus in Ohio in 1970. Just weeks later, Neil Young channelled his rage into a haunting song called Ohio, which was released and played on the radio almost immediately. Perhaps no other era in American history saw such an intense outpouring of politically driven popular music as the years around the Vietnam War. Songs from Buffalo Springfield, Phil Ochs, and Edwin Starr were explicit in their anti-war messaging while also providing a soundtrack for soldiers in the battlefield. These artists were exercising their fundamental American right to protest government actions, and in a newly ascendant age of protest, it is worth exploring the vital role that music can play in society.

After decades living under a repressive Communist regime, the people of East Germany could no longer stay trapped behind the brick wall that separated them from their countrymen in the West - and so they tore that Wall down. Since the 1960s, West Berlin had been a cultural hotspot and a draw for artists like the Rolling Stones and David Bowie. But because rock music was considered politically dangerous to the Communist authorities, teenagers in the East had little access to it. This episode charts the course of the Cold War in Berlin through music, showing how it helped to sow the seeds of rebellion. After the Wall officially came down in 1989, a number of artists including Roger Waters of Pink Floyd put on concerts to celebrate. But it was a German band, the Scorpions, who came up with the true anthem of that moment in time, 'Wind of Change', which captured the bittersweet emotions behind such a dramatic moment in history.

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.
