"Hey Ayatollah, Leave Those Kids Alone!"

>> Thursday, August 12, 2010

Blurred Vision, a Canadian band fronted by Iranian exiles, reimagine "Another Brick In The Wall (pt. 2)" as a protest song against the reactionary Iranian regime with excellent results and a music video directed by Babak Payami:






Roger Waters' response to the cover:

I think it's great that these guys are using the song to protest against the repressive and brutal regime in Iran. South African kids did during apartheid and Palestinian kids do to protest the Israeli occupation of their land. I am proud to be a small part of this resistance.


Music can matter.
