X107.5 Holiday Havoc 2011

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rise Against[/lastfm] recently recorded a cover and now a video for the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bob Dylan[/lastfm] tune “The Ballad of Hollis Brown. This and many other tracks from other artists can be found on “Chimes Of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International”…

“The Ballad of Hollis Brown” was about one farmer who falls on hard times, but I don’t think anyone from that time period could imagine how our entire agricultural system would fall on hard times. 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.”
