On this day in 1970, Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day, the national holiday now celebrated in nearly 200 countries. While every day ostensibly should be Earth Day, it's nice to have a little reminder that maybe you should walk instead of drive and separate your damn recycling!

Rock and roll ain't just decadence and narcissism. Listen to our Earth Day playlist below for some artists like BeckJack Johnson and Michael Jackson who do give a damn.
