Folk music legend and civil rights activist Pete Seeger died Monday at 94 years old. Seeger hit his peak of fame in the 1950s and 1960s with his versions of rabble-rousing, anti-Establishment songs like, "This Land Is Your Land," "Goodnight Irene," "We Shall Overcome," and "Joe Hill."
He wrote or cowrote some of the era's most iconic songs, including "Turn, Turn, Turn," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," "On Top of Old Smokey," and "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine." He adapted a South African chant called "Wimoweh," which became the enormous hit "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." His influence is huge and legendary. He was an early backer of Bob Dylan -- despite supposedly threatening to unplug his equipment at a famous folk festival. He collaborated extensively with Bruce Springsteen and was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
