Forbidden Research Event Playlist

Over the summer I organized an event for the Media Lab called Forbidden Research, which the New York Times wrote about, and Bloomberg to name just a few. As you can probably guess the theme was about unlocking scientific and cultural research that has moral and social restraints which makes it otherwise forbidden, or at least seriously frowned upon. Some of the session topics included gene editing, climate editing, islam and women's rights, and hacking for social good. 

During conference breaks I wanted to play music that would get people really fired up. Music has that ability. So I spent some time finding songs that have a somewhat relevant message to the ideas of dissidence. The music was well received, even though some of the songs (NWA's Fuck the Police) made me nervous to hit play, I did it anyway.

Here's the playlist in full via Spotify.
