The evolution of WAR began in 1969…and WAR has been evolving ever since.
WAR’s global popularity is a tribute to the timelessness of its music and message. Perhaps, nothing epitomizes this truth greater than the fact that WAR has twice been honored by its hometown of Los Angeles, over twenty years apart, for its music making positive contributions to the betterment of the community. “The world is still a ghetto”, says Lonnie Jordan, echoing the title of the early album and song. “There will always be a reason to play our songs. When you come back to reality, you pull down WAR, because WAR is reality. We have a lot of second-generation fans and they’re seeing the same things their parents saw. They’re hearing the same messages. We’re like Levi’s,” says Jordan, “and there’s nothing nostalgic about Levi’s. In fact, they’re not really good and funky until they’ve
been worn awhile.”
