“Occupy This Album” by Junkyard Empire & Friends
The sociopolitical rap/rock band Junkyard Empire is about to occupy the music industry alongside Willie Nelson, Yoko Ono, Tom Morello, Devo and Thievery Corporation. The band publishes its song “Rebellion Politik” on the upcoming “Occupy This Album,” a compilation for the Occupy Wall Street movement featuring those all-stars, plus Lucinda Williams, Crosby and Nash, DJ Logic, Immortal Technique, Warren Haynes, Yo La Tengo, Toots & the Maytals and about 30 others. Led by powerhouse rapper Brihanu and featuring No Bird Sing drummer Graham O’Brien, Junkyard Empire has a history of musical activism dating back to an appearance on the State Capitol grounds during the Republican National Convention in 2008.
