But there are many more, too. So which ones make the cut? For those that love hip hop you'll want to check out Gin & Juice by Daneka Nation. Notorious B.I.G.'s "Time's Up" After September 11, the aftermath of the attacks left shockwaves across the United States.

“I’m still going”: Singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow reflects on her decades-long career

After more than two decades in the music industry, singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, 60, says she's "still going" despite the hardships she's endured. The "All I Wanna Do" and "Soak Up the Sun" singer says it's the times she's felt underestimated that motivate her."There have been moments where I've felt like I've really been not taken seriously, that I've been overlooked, that I've been an outsider into the cool club," she told CBS News senior culture and senior national correspondent Anthony Mason from her home in Nashville, Tennessee.
