'The Ghost of Tom Joad' is one of Bruce Springsteen's most famous tracks, as the title track to his eleventh studio album which released in 1995.

Bono has gathered several musicians together for the agit8 campaign, where the goal is to get the world leaders meeting next week at the G8 summit to focus more on poverty than they've been doing over the past. 
 
Several musicians have collaborated on this album, including Mumford and Sons, Elvis Costello, Green Day, Ed Sheeran, and Will.i.am. Mumford and Sons, along with Elvis Costello, covered the Springsteen track 'The Ghost of Tom Joad', whereas Sheeran covered 'Masters of War' by Bob Dylan.

Green Day and Will.i.am didn't cover songs but came up with original songs to include in the collaboration for the campaign, and all the songs can actually be viewed in the video 'ONE presents agit8: The Power of Protest Songs.' The actual agit8 campaign is to get the leaders to focus on poverty ridden conditions in Africa, and basically focus on reducing corruption through more transparency, and making food more readily available. Whether the campaign actually works is another story, considering that these summits and leaders are notoriously averse to responding to campaigns, even celebrity campaigns.
