President Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize this morning, just nine months into his first term in office, for his efforts to rid the world of nuclear weapons and his strides toward curbing global warming. To celebrate Obama’s honor, this long weekend’s Rock List will focus on songs that promote “Peace.” Tell us your favorites, and on Tuesday we’ll count up the ballots and announce who wins the rock list for Peace Song (it’s like winning the Nobel without the international prestige and cash reward). Until then, check out our picks below:

• Elvis Costello – “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding”
• Plastic Ono Band – “Give Peace a Chance”
• Thom Yorke – “Atoms for Peace”
• The Doors – “Peace Frog”
• Weezer – “Peace”
