Watch This: Rise Against – Ballad of Hollis Brown

Get up, get down, there’s a revolution in this town! Whose streets? Our streets! Check out this new visual from socially conscious band, Rise Against, as they take on a cover of the Bob Dylan classic, “Ballad of Hollis Brown”. The track is pulled from their cover album entitled, Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International.

Look out for striking statistics in the music video regarding the farming industry in the United States and worldwide. The band chose this song to prove a point that the problems farmers had in the 60s are still present for farmers today:

“We wanted to make a video that would let the audience know that these problems aren’t exclusive to the time period Bob Dylan was singing about, and in fact they’ve grown exponentially. A farmer’s enemies aren’t just drought or floods anymore, they are now everything from over-powerful corporations to short-sighted immigration policies,” says vocalist Tim McIlrath.
