Another Brick in the Wall” is the title of three songs set to variations of the same theme on Pink Floyd’s 1979 rock opera The Wall. All three songs were written by Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters.

Part 2 is a protest song against rigid schooling. It was released as a single and became Pink Floyd’s only number-one hit in the United Kingdom, the United States, West Germany, and many other countries. In addition, in the US, along with the tracks, “Run Like Hell”, and “Don’t Leave Me Now”, “Another Brick in the Wall” reached number 57 on the disco chart.

In the UK, Part 2 was Pink Floyd’s first single since 1968’s “Point Me at the Sky”; the song was also the final number-one single of the 1970s. For Part 2, Pink Floyd received a Grammy nomination for Best Performance by a Rock Duo or Group and lost to Bob Seger’s “Against the Wind”. In addition, Part 2 was number 375 on Rolling Stones list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”. The single sold over 4 million copies worldwide.

That single, as well as the album The Wall, was banned in South Africa in 1980 after the song was adopted by supporters of a nationwide school boycott protesting racial inequities in education under the apartheid regime.
