The long-maligned "Me" Decade, which gave us 10 years of egregious soft rock and stomach-churning stadium acts, may actually have been one of the most radical and diverse periods of popular music around the globe. 

From Fela Kuti's return to Nigeria where he would revolutionize West African pop to the the birth and/or flowering of disco, hip-hop, krautrock, new wave and punk, more music of 1970s persists and remains influential today than that of any other decade we can think of.

On May 13, Bodega Pop Live on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio took a 3-hour tour around the globe and through time, from 1970 to 1979, exploring some of the most ear-bending tracks of the decade.
