Experience the iconic reggae sound of Jamaican legend Bob Marley. Trenchtown is a poor area in Kingston, Jamaica where Marley grew up. After a hurricane destroyed many of the homes there in 1951, a new settlement formed around a dump site. It was a difficult way of life, and Marley wrote this about how music was an escape from the poverty and desperation of Trenchtown.

The title track praised the virtues of slum-living and portrayed the poor as the righteous; it was the first popular track in Jamaica to speak for their marginalized lower class.

Trenchtown Rock had an enormous social impact and as Peter Tosh remembers, brought the Wailers into a new dimension.
