"Give Peace a Chance" is a 1969 
single by (John Lennon's) Plastic Ono Band 
that became an anthem of the American 
anti-war movement at that time.

A different song with the same name, written
 by Leon Russell and Bonny Bramlett,
 was sung by Joe Cocker.

Writing and recording

The song was written during 
Lennon's Bed-In honeymoon:
 when asked by a reporter what he was trying
 to achieve by staying in bed, Lennon answered
 spontaneously "All we are saying is give peace a chance"; 
Lennon liked the phrase and set it to music 
for the song.
 He sang the song several times during the Bed-In,
 and finally, on 1 June 1969, in Room 1742 
at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, recorded 
it using a simple setup of four microphones
 and a four-track tape recorder rented from
 a local recording studio. The recording session 
was attended by dozens of journalists and various
 celebrities, including Timothy Leary,
 Rabbi Abraham Feinberg, Joseph Schwartz,
 Allan Rock, Rosemary Woodruff Leary,
 Petula Clark, Dick Gregory, Allen Ginsberg, 
Murray the K, Al Capp and Derek Taylor, 
many of whom are mentioned in the lyrics. 
Lennon played acoustic guitar and was joined 
by Tommy Smothers of the Smothers Brothers, 
also on acoustic guitar.
