They questioned authority. They celebrated nonconformity. They dared to be different. VH1's new documentary series "Lords of the Revolution" profiles the nonconformist heroes -- and anti-heroes -- of the 60s and 70s, honoring those icons who challenged social, political and cultural institutions of the time. Edgy, colorful and visually dynamic, each hour-long episode will tell the compelling story of a visionary who -- through music, art, social change or politics -- influenced popular culture in a way that it is still felt today.
