Songs both current and classic by artists from a variety of genres are featured on the official inauguration playlist for the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris campaign.

The 46-track playlist, now available on your favorite streaming service, was compiled by DJ D-Nice and Raedio, a record label founded by Insecure creator and star Issa Rae.

Among the songs by classic-rock artists that you’ll find on the playlist: Led Zeppelin‘s “Fool in the Rain,” The Doobie Brothers‘ “What a Fool Believes,” Bruce Springsteen‘s “We Take Care of Our Own,” and Steely Dan‘s “Do It Again.”

Classics by such veteran acts as Bob Marley & The Wailers, Stevie Wonder, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Marvin Gaye and Earth, Wind & Fire also made the list, as did “You Get What You Give” by New Radicals, who are reforming to perform at the inauguration parade.

“During a tumultuous year that has kept so many loved ones apart, music has been a consistent vehicle that has kept us connected,” Presidential Inaugural Committee CEO Tony Allen said in a statement, according to Entertainment Weekly.  “These songs and artists reflect the relentless spirit and rich diversity of America. They are the score to a new chapter and will help bring people together as the Biden-Harris Administration begins its important work to unite our country.”
