Occupy the music

Now I love the Occupy movement. Although I think that in some places like Oakland it has gotten a bit out of hand, I still absolutely love it and I wish that I had the time (and money) to go and participate.
Besides the message however, I also love the music that has come out of this movement. One of the things I always complain about to my father is that he was alive and active during the 70s when all of the anti-establishment folk songs were popular and I completely missed all of them (on a contrasting note I think that LBJ is one of our most under-appreciated presidents who did NOT deserve all the hate that he got thrown his way). This is most likely why I love such songs as Run From The Gun by Dead Confederate. Now, I have found this absolute gem coming from the Occupy Seattle camp that makes me so happy that there are some very talented people out there making beautiful music for a great cause. 
This guy is just amazing and I just wanna listen to it over, and over, and over again.
