|Text on Button||a tribute to john lennon WORKING CLASS HERO Hollywood RECORDS|
A white button with black text and a picture of circular sun-glasses - the same style worn by John Lennon.
This is a promotional button for an album of cover songs entitled "Working Class Hero, a tribute to John Lennon". The album was released in 1995 and features a number of popular artists including George Clinton, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Cheap Trick. Designed to be a fundraiser for charity, at least half of all net proceeds went to the Humane Society of the United States.
John Lennon was a British born rock musician who was a member of the Beatles, a political activist, and a popular solo musician. He is generally associated with causes which promote peace, and subsequent cover albums of his music have been charity based. The name of the album comes from a popular John Lennon ballad of the same name. Lennon was a victim of assassination in 1980.
As a whole the album received poor reviews.
