Artists United Against Apartheid was a 1985 protest group founded by activist and performer Steven Van Zandt and record producer Arthur Baker to protest against apartheid in South Africa. The group produced the song "Sun City" and the album Sun City that year, which is considered a notable anti-apartheid song. Sun City was a place where the South African government allowed entertainment that was banned in most of the country.
Little Steven organized a number of artists for this protest against apartheid, including such heavyweights as Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Jimmy Cliff, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Run-D. Thankfully, the result was extremely listenable, as well as fiercely political; it's one of the few charity or protest albums that stands up to repeated listenings, thanks to the extended instrumental workouts. Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul. Artists United Against Apartheid. 2. No More Apartheid. Peter Gabriel, Shankar.

Ahh, sun city Sun city South Africa South Africa. We're rockers and rappers united and strong We're here to talk about South Africa we don't like what's going on (tell it) It's time for some justice it's time for the truth (speak it) We've realized. there's only one thing we can do. We gotta say I, I, I, I, I, I Ain't gonna play sun city Oh, no, no, no I, I, I, I, I, I I ain't gonna play sun city Everybody say I, I, I, I, I, I Ain't gonna play sun city.
Artists United Against Apartheid was organized by "Little Steven" Van Zandt, who discovered Sun City when he traveled to Africa after leaving Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band in 1985. Van Zandt considered naming artists who played the Sun City resort in the song, but decided not to. He asked them to participate in the project instead. Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Run-D. Lou Reed, Bonnie Raitt, Bono, Melle Mel, Keith Richards, Jackson Browne, and George Clinton are some of the 54 artists who contributed to the song.
That we can dance while we're organizing is this record's greatest triumph. The five half-brothers of the Wilbury family were hokey but hip, and their individual strengths complemented one another perfectly.
