Transcript of The Cultural Impact of 1984

In 2009, this English rock band released THE RESISTANCE; claiming that George Orwell's novel 1984 had a massive influence on the album. MUSE “When I read it this time, I was much more taken with the love story... I read it once in school about 15 years ago and it was all about the politics. But when I read it this time, I was much more taken with the love story in the book between Julia and Winston," explains lead singer of Muse, Matthew Bellamy. OUR LADY PEACE This Canadian alternative rock/post-grunge band released SPIRITUAL MACHINES in 2000. This album contains short narrative tracks between songs, during which one of them, the voice states... "In 1949 George Orwell portrays a chilling world in which computers are used by large bureaucracies to monitor and enslave the population in his book 1984." ...firm evidence that this novel influenced the band's writing of this album. DAVID BOWIE Released in 1974, DIAMOND DOGS is a concept album, radiating themes of George Orwell's 1984. Bowie wanted to make a theatrical production of the novel and began writing for it, but was unfortunately denied the rights. Instead, the songs wound up on side two of Diamond Dogs.
