KMFDM Bitch-Slaps Plutocracy With A Drug Against Wall Street

From Johan of HoodooEngine:

The whole #OccupyWallStreet thing is cool and all, but it’s not a real party until some heavyweights of radical music start throwing their weight behind it. Fans of industrial metal will be pleased to know that KMFDM has done just that, releasing a new version of their classic track (which the more angsty of us rocked in our angsty bedrooms over a decade ago), A Drug Against War, but have altered their own lyrics to spotlight the recent rebellion against evil psycho-clown corporations.

The vocals in the track are now all about defeating our shady bankster-GMO-Annunaki overlords with the new title A Drug Against Wall Street! Calling upon the 99% to “march to the drum of the ultra heavy beat,” the vocals warn against remaining passive to the ravages of class warfare, warning us rather succinctly that “make no mistake, our children’s future is at stake.”

Shortly after the release of this slammer in its new incarnation, KMFDM’s founder and front-man, Sascha K, stated, “On Oct 15, I suddenly had this idea of doing a new version… using alternate lyrics voicing support of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Working quickly I was able to get it done and posted so it could be made available for free to everyone during the Global Day Of Action.”

    I’ve been listening to KMFDM since I was in grade school, and this rework didn’t impress me at all.  A new version of Glory would be RAD, though.

  2. Seriously? They haven’t been heavyweight since the late 90’s. That era of industrial is dead and gone. Put it to bed already.

  3. OK so let me get this straight… they support Occupy Movement (although well intentioned) the majority of this movement supports Barack Obama who is aggressively leading the troops in the War On Drugs?  Do any of these guys know how to read? 

    • How do you know the majority of Occupy supports Obama?

      •  Because they are mindless zombies, that’s how.

        He knows it the same way people know that Iran has a nuclear weapon program, because some dipshit told him so with no evidence whatsoever to back it up and that’s good enough for any troll.

    • Err, how you got that an anarchist movement started by Adbusters, a Canadian anarchist magazine, supports Barack Obama, is beyond me.  No doubt we’re plagued by liberals, just like we are plagued by junkies (Honestly, I’d take the junkies over the liberals given the choice any day).  Though, even that is moderately unfair…even most of the liberals I’ve run into out in Occupy camps are pretty fed up with Obama…

      On October 10 of last year, Occupy protesters marched through New York’s Upper-East Side, as reported in Alternet here:

      From the article:

      The march kicked off at 59th Street and 5th Avenue. I was a bit late arriving, so I followed the trail of police officers strewn like breadcrumbs along the sidewalk over to Park Avenue, where I noticed a young man wearing a Wisconsin cheese hat trying to give an interview to a TV reporter. He found himself accosted by a well-coifed, gym-toned woman in her 50s — presumably a resident — who lectured the young man in high decibels: “We have to give Obama the Congress he deserves! OK? It’s not the president’s fault! OK? He doesn’t want the economy to look like this! Stop blaming Obama!” When she stopped for a breath, the bewildered Wisconsinite asked, “Who said anything about Obama?” 

      I’ve never heard any opinion come from the occupy movement resembling praise for Obama or the Democrats. Your assertion is ridiculous.

       Tracks at the link are all broken with 00:00 run times. How lame.

  4. I actually listened to this track a few weeks ago!
