An Occupy Anthem
Tom Morello, the most tireless Occupy celeb activist, has just released with friends what he calls a much-needed rock "anthem" to join the earnest folk tunes that normally dominate. "We Are the 99%" streaming today at Rolling Stone and more generally available tomorrow. Starts Rage-like then there's a brief, softer Morello passage, before a return to thrash. Listen now. Backup vocals by Mike Chec.
