Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
If you just can't get enough protest music, look no further than Michael Franti, whose career has been based on the stuff since way back when he was leading the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy in the early '90s. The Bay Area native's music, a blend of hip-hop, reggae and folk, can sometimes be overshadowed by his impassioned social commentary, but you'll leave with renewed enthusiasm for President Obama's Serve America well as humming G. Love's drawled classics "My Baby's Got Sauce," "Cold Beverage" and "Stepping Stone." (Ben Rubenstein)
