Bob Dylan is one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century. From his beginnings as a folk singer in the 1960s, Dylan's thoughtful and incisive lyrics and southern roots-influenced style helped usher in an American folk music revival. Songs like "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They are a-Changin'" became anthems of the anti-war and Civil Rights movement and made him the reluctant voice of a generation. Expanding his repertoire into the electrified realm, in a span of 15 months he recorded some of the most important rock albums of the 1960s.
With a recording career that has stretched across five decades, Bob Dylan has received innumerable awards and accolades, including multiple Grammy awards, a Golden Globe, an Academy Award, a Pulitzer Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the Nobel Prize in Literature, as the first musician to be awarded that honor. He has sold more than 120 million records, making him one of the best-selling music artists thus far. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him at #1 on their 2015 list of Greatest Songwriters of All Time.
