2. Katrina Clap

The 2005 tragedy brought on the city of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina was possibly the worst natural disaster that has ever been experienced by American citizens. One of the most memorable protests of the government’s response to Katrina victims was Mos Def’s impromptu performance of “Katrina Clap”, a remake of UTP‘s “Nolia Clap” on the back of a flatbed tractor-trailer in front of Radio City Music Hall on the night of the MTV Video Music Awards. Even though Mos had a permit to perform in public, he was still arrested following the performance.
