Recently, Canadian band Blurred Vision covered (or, re-released) Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” in order to protest the brutal, autocratic and clerical regime in Iran; the indie group released a video and changed a key lyric to “Hey Ayatollah, leave those kids alone.”
From Blurred Vision’s Facebook page: “The video and single was released in support of the youth in Iran and their fight for freedom against the oppressive regime of the Islamic Republic.” Roger Waters supported the curious move alongside the overall endeavor. Does Gilmour approve?
