Offering up a tune which was debuting at #38 on both the 2/26/00 Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and Modern Rock Tracks chart. It's by Rage Against the Machine and was directed by Michael Moore. Check out the image on the video at the 1:04 mark... someone is holding a 2016 political candidate's sign 16 years too early! Who would have thought Michael More could have predicted the future? By the way, my posting of this video is not an endorsement of that candidate... it's just interesting to see this featured 16 years ago. Here is Rage Against the Machine with "Sleep Now In The Fire":

Posting a song from the one and only Bob Dylan. It was featured in the movie "Wonder Boys" which starred Michael Douglas and Robert Downey Jr. The soundtrack was peaking at #155 on the 3/18/2000 Billboard 200 Album chart, and while the single never charted, it would go on to win the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Original Song. This song was also featured in a 2014 Chrysler 200 commercial starring Bob himself. Here is Bob Dylan with "Things Have Changed":
