Trouble Songs is the story of music and conflict in Northern Ireland since 1968.

The story is related by Bono, Christy Moore, The Undertones, Stiff Little Fingers, Orbital, Kevin Rowland, Terri Hooley, The Rubberbandits and The Miami Showband survivors. Musicians from punk, folk, rave and rock have responded to violence, bigotry and shocking events.
