Bob Dylan is a rare artist that has managed to transcend genre to become a universally praised songwriter, performer and musician of the 20th- and 21st-centuries. Starting out as a chronicler of social issues in the 1960s, Dylan has had true staying power with thirty-two studio albums released in 53 years - the most recent of which is 2015's critically acclaimed Shadows in the Night.

Comments from Youtube

John Harwood : I have one of those actual cards he holds up. My dad and his friend were there at the recording of this when my dad worked as a black cab driver in London. He picked up one, his friend picked up a few, apparently. My dad said I could have his about 20 yrs ago. Still got it, now in a frame! Nice to see Nobel Prizes being awarded to people who wouldn't have stood a chance years ago!

Hank Hill : wow bob dylan can rap

Emily : He's so adorable in this video! Especially when he slightly messes up when he goes too fast so he holds the card up to the camera.

VultureClone : That, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows." has always been my favourite line. Clever, lyrically.

Hector Ramirez : "you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows." Such an underrated line. I love it.

Mr Mojo Risin' : That was Allen Ginsberg, man!

my fuckin' legacy : So fucking excited that one of my favorite Bob videos is finally up on YouTube.

Peter Shoobridge : It's hard to over-praise Dylan. He invented so much of what became taken as the stock in trade of popular culture. Here, with D A Pennebaker, he invents the music video. Of course, the song itself is a marvel of beat poetry, dense with allusion to mid-60s political dissent, and with more "hook" than Peter Pan's pirate. Despite its historical setting, Subterranean Homesick Blues is utterly timeless. And brilliant. 2 Minutes 20 seconds of breathless magic that demands to be played over and over again.

Gaby H : bob was so handsome

Lengo67 : Is that Alan Ginsberg in the background? Sure looks like him.

Sprongo : "The pump don't work 'cause the vandals took the handles" is still one of my favourite, all-time rock 'n' roll lines.

Gary Kerns : At 0:33, the card said "20 dollar bills", but Dylan said "11 dollar bills". Happy 77th, Bob!

Anonymous : my English teacher told us to watch this.......I think I'm the only one who actually did

Askar Kul : he was wise for his age....

countesslorinz : The deadpan look on Dylan's face is so funny. Goes really good with the lyrics of the song.

Joan Donachie : Many congratulations to Bob Dylan today, the first songwriter ever to win the Nobel Prize in Literature & he deserved it! A true poet, just he transferred his words into song! I remember the first time I heard this song as a kid, I thought ''Wow, how cool is this guy, he just writes songs the way you speak''.

T Carmichael : the Shakespeare of our times!

veldt : Me llamo Roberto, y esta es mi canción favorita

Scharlison Santos : Finally!!!!!!!! Copyright sucks

Eastbound and Down : "Don't need a weatherman to tell which way the wind blows" And so the Weather Underground is born
