Behold the Lords of the Revolution, VH1′s newest Rock Documentary series that explores some of the biggest iconoclasts from the past century. The five-day documentary, premiering on August 10 at 8PM EST, will focus on five people or groups that have changed the shape of pop culture and in some cases, the world. Each night, a different documentary will focus on the following legends: Andy Warhol, Timothy Leary, Muhammad Ali, The Black Panthers, and Cheech and Chong.
There’s no better way to introduce the most influential minds of a past generation than with an example of the most creative minds of the next generation. The promos for Lords of the Revolution feature a band that’s no stranger to iconic imagery: Kasabian take their name from Linda Kasabian, a follower of Charles Manson and star witness in the trial that imprisoned him. Their song “Fast Fuse” (listen in the clip above or at Rhapsody) is the Stone Roses by way of the Beatles‘ White Album (so that ties nicely into the Helter Skelter-y history of their name) and is on their third album, West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. And if you’re not convinced yet that they’re worth a listen, maybe the world’s most famous wizard will put you over the edge — Daniel Radcliffe is a fan.
