* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Guthrie's songs reflect the time they were written in. He wrote songs about WorldWarTwo, the Communist Witch Hunts near the end of the 1940s and early 1950s, the civil rights movements, UsefulNotes/BillyTheKid, Pretty Boy Floyd,... He even wrote a song about the [[AmazonBrigade female Soviet sniper]] Lyudmila Pavlicenko.

Woodrow Wilson "Woody" Guthrie (1912–1967) was an American FolkMusic singer, seen as one of the most powerful and influential musicians of his day, and a huge troublemaker against the forces of bullshit. He was a major inspiration for a lot of folk and [[ProtestSong protest singers]], among them Music/BobDylan, who saw him as his personal hero.

His SignatureSong, "This Land Is Your Land" is still a standard, though in the original context it was actually a ProtestSong instead of a PatrioticFervor song. He originally wrote it as a Take That to Music/IrvingBerlin's "God Bless America"[[note]]The revised version of "God Bless America" was released just two years before "This Land is Your Land" was[[/note]], responding to the song's nationalist undertones by singing about the importance of America's diversity and sense of inclusiveness. Hell, some early versions of the song are overtly political in nature—and a few of them even mention Guthrie's support of the Communist Party.

In 1998, a massive collection of lyrics he never set to music was recorded at last as a collaboration between Music/{{Wilco}} and Music/BillyBragg. His son, Arlo Guthrie, became a musician himself and is most famous for his album ''[[Music/AlicesRestaurant Alice's Restaurant]]''.

* JesusWasWayCool: "Jesus Christ" depicts Christ as a socialist rebel killed for speaking truth to power (and notably makes no reference to his resurrection).Guthrie also wrote a song called "Christ for President," later recorded by Wilco as part of Mermaid Avenue. President Christ promises "a job and pension for young and old."
