The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" is a poem and song by Gil Scott-Heron. Scott-Heron first recorded it for his 1970 album Small Talk at 125th and Lenox, on which he recited the lyrics, accompanied by congas and bongo drums. A re-recorded version, with a full band, was the B-side to Scott-Heron's first single, "Home Is Where the Hatred Is", from his album Pieces of a Man (1971). It was also included on his compilation album, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (1974).

Good evening and welcome, my name is Gil Scott-Heron My accomplices are, first, from left to right: Eddie Knowles, a drummer for the Denise salute dance group, a drummer for December dances and a percussionist for a group called "Black & Blues"; The brother to my immediate left is Charlie Saunders, of December dance group and a former drummer for Loretta Parker; David Barnes, a singer of "Black & Blues", will be heard later on in the evening  . A re-recorded version with a full band, was the B-side to Scott-Heron’s first single, Home Is Where the Hatred Is, from his album Pieces of a Man (1971).

Throughout the 1970s and early 80s, Scott-Heron used his songs to rail against the Vietnam war, the perils of alcohol and narcotics, the Watergate scandal and racial injustice, although these pieces – created with principal collaborator Brian Jackson – were generally harmonious fusions of soul, jazz, blues and funk, rather than diatribes. Home Is Where the Hatred Is Sampled by Kanye West on My Way Home, this grim depiction of ghetto misery and narcotic misadventures assumed a new resonance in the light of Scott-Heron’s own drug addiction.

Gil Scott-Heron never had a pop hit single; he was more important than that. With ‘Johannesburg’, ‘Home is Where The Hatred Is’ and ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’ he wrote songs that resonated beyond the world of disposable chart-toppers. That’s not to say he didn’t have success, and 1974 was a very good year for him. The album Winter In America, released on Strata-East, spawned the radio hit ‘The Bottle’ and several cover versions

Home is Where the Hatred Is. It's Time. The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. Where Did the Night Go? Gustavo Adolfo Becquer. It also won’t make us any thinner by watching. In verses 40-44, he wants us to know that when the revolution is televised, the songs of our country won’t be the same ones written by the father of the songs of our country. It won’t be sung by the singers that are the best at the moment. The truth about our country will never be known over . Things are always going to be hidden, and there isn’t anything we can do. The very last verse of the poem re-ensures us that we will know about the revolution. The revolution won’t be brought to us though; we have to go to the revolution.
