John Lennon: Imagine

John was quite controversial. It is true, that this song is about peace, though it has been blacklisted in 1991, at the times of the Gulf War. It has been banned in 2001 too, following the attacks of 911. Some religious people disputed the lyrics, “Imagine there is no heaven”. Even though it has been banned, the song is known to be the most famous song of all times.
