Redemption Song (Bob Marley): The ultimate acoustic anthem, taken from the reggae star's 1978 album, Kaya. Inspired by a Marcus Garvey speech, Redemption Song is Marley's poignant call for black empowerment.

Sitting in Limbo (Jimmy Cliff): One of the classics from The Harder They Come soundtrack, hears Cliff's progression from ska child artiste to full-blown reggae star.

Creation (Peter Tosh): The fiery 'Stepping Razor' takes the rhetoric down a notch on this prayer from 1978. Co-produced by Tosh and Robbie Shakespeare.

Stepping Out (Steel Pulse): As potent as the studio version from the group's Earth Crisis album.

Untold Stories (Buju Banton): Buju announced his conversion to Rastafari with this inspirational 1995 piece. His generation's Redemption Song.
