Pink Floyd anthem rewritten for young Iranians
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - The Pink Floyd rock music classic "Another Brick in the Wall" has been transformed by a Canadian band to reflect dissent young Iranians have for their government.
The song replaces the teacher reference with "Hey, Ayatollah, leave those kids alone!" It's performed by a Toronto-based rock band fronted by two Iranian brothers called Blurred Vision. It's been seen by more than 160,000 viewers on YouTube.
Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters gave Blurred Vision permission to use the song. Proceeds will go to Amnesty International.
The Blurred Vision version of the song expresses discord between young people and the government of Iran, where it's illegal to play rock music.
Waters will begin his tour of "The Wall" in Toronto on Sept. 15. "Another Brick in the Wall" is from that classic 1979 album.
