99percent

Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, Tim McIlrath of Rise Against and Serj Tankian of System of a Down have released a song for the Occupy Wall Street movement’s first birthday.

The song, entitled “We Are The 99%”, is streaming on RollingStone.com and available for free download here. Read a statement from Morello below, who wrote and produced the song.

“We Are The 99%” is a song inspired by the global Occupy movement. I wanted to capture the excitement and energy of people fighting for change and make sure the song was free to anyone who wants it. Brothers in arms Tim McIlrath (from Rise Against) and Serj Tankian (from System Of A Down) lent their amazing talents to the song and we incorporated chants from the original Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park as well. It’s my hope that songs like this will provide a rocking soundtrack for those who have a vision of a more just planet and strengthen their resolve to fight on.”
