Update and FYI:
At Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2013, the band that played John Lennon’s Imagine was “Train“, a band out of San Francisco.
If you want to spend New Years Eve with Occupy:
On New Years Eve in Times Square they will probably play John Lennon’s Imagine [Yes, they did, right before the ball dropped!]. Lennon’s song has also resonated with folks from the Occupy Wall Street movement. “Imagine” was one of the tunes sung by the small group of stalwarts who gathered at Liberty Square/Zuccotti Park for Christmas.

Below the first video are links to lots and lot of videos of Occupiers singing Imagine.
You, you may say
I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
