March 5th, 2010 by Rolling Stone Leave a reply »

Barring any more root canal surgeries or courthouse fires, this weekend will be Lil Wayne’s last as a free man before he’s officially sentenced to a year in jail on Monday. The day Weezy goes behind bars, T.I. will unveil his first post-penitentiary single, a celebration of his own freedom called “I’m Back.” As a tribute to the soon-to-be-incarcerated and the recently released, this weekend’s Rock List is dedicated to Freedom Songs. Tell us your favorites and on Monday we’ll tally the votes. Until then, here’s a handful of our picks and a gallery of rock-star mug shots:

• The Who – “I’m Free”
• George Michael – “Freedom! ‘90″
• Ween – “Freedom of ‘76″
• The Beatles – “Free as a Bird”
• Devo – “Freedom of Choice”
