Bob Marley and The Wailers: Rebel Music (1986)

I guess you could say that this collection is the opposite of Legend. As Allmusic states, Legend "misrepresented the range of Marley's work, downplaying its political aspect in favor of danceability and romantic sentiments." The author goes on to say: "Of course, what made Marley such a powerful figure internationally was his message about the uprising of the oppressed, but you wouldn't know that from Legend." [source]

So, here we have a number of political tunes, the most popular of which is probably Get Up, Stand Up, though the version included here is live.
