  1. zekice sözlere sahip gill scott-heron şarkısı. 60'ların sonunda 70'lerin başındaki sivil haklar mücadelesinin içinden yazmıştır, "devrim televizyonlardan yayınlanmayacak, devrimin tekrar gösterimi olmayacak, devrim canlı olacak" demiştir. gezi direnişi'nde de çok kullanıldı bu slogan, özellikle anaakım medya sansürü ile ilgili. yanılmıyorsam arap baharı sırasında da kullanıldı. hatta "the revolution will not be televised, but tweeted" geyiği yapıldı. aynı zamanda şarkı, politik rap'in öncüllerinden sayılıyormuş.

    you will not be able to stay home, brother
    you will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out
    you will not be able to lose yourself on skag and
    skip out for beer during commercials
    because the revolution will not be televised

    the revolution will not be televised
    the revolution will not be brought to you by xerox
    in 4 parts without commercial interruptions
    the revolution will not show you pictures of nixon
    blowing a bugle and leading a charge by john
    mitchell, general abrams and spiro agnew to eat
    hog maws confiscated from a harlem sanctuary
    the revolution will not be televised

    the revolution will not be brought to you by the
    schaefer award theatre and will not star natalie
    wood and steve mcqueen or bullwinkle and julia
    the revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal
    the revolution will not get rid of the nubs
    the revolution will not make you look five pounds thinner
    because the revolution will not be televised, brother

    there will be no pictures of you and willie mays
    pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run
    or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance
    nbc will not be able predict the winner at 8:32
    or report from 29 districts
    the revolution will not be televised

    there will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
    brothers in the instant replay
    there will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
    brothers in the instant replay
    there will be no pictures of whitney young being
    run out of harlem on a rail with a brand new process
    there will be no slow motion or still life of roy
    wilkins strolling through watts in a red, black and
    green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving
    for just the proper occasion

    green acres, the beverly hillbillies, and hooterville
    junction will no longer be so goddamn relevant, and
    women will not care if dick finally gets down with
    jane on search for tomorrow because black people
    will be in the street looking for a brighter day
    the revolution will not be televised

    there will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock
    news and no pictures of hairy armed women
    liberationists and jackie onassis blowing her nose
    the theme song will not be written by jim webb
    or francis scott key, nor sung by glen campbell, tom
    jones, johnny cash, or englebert humperdink, or the rare earth
    the revolution will not be televised

    the revolution will not be right back after a message
    about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people
    you will not have to worry about a dove in your
    bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl
    the revolution will not go better with coke
    the revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath
    the revolution will put you in the driver's seat

    the revolution will not be televised, will not be televised
    will not be televised, will not be televised
    the revolution will be no re-run brothers;
    the revolution will be live
