Another Brick In The Wall (Part II)

23 Nov, 1979

The band releases the single, Another Brick In The Wall (Part II), from the album, The Wall. Waters writes the song about his views on formal education:

You couldn’t find anybody in the world more pro-education than me. But the education I went through in boys’ grammar school in the ’50s was very controlling and demanded rebellion. The teachers were weak and therefore easy targets. The song is meant to be a rebellion against errant government, against people who have power over you, who are wrong. Then it absolutely demanded that you rebel against that.
