Rise Against And Why They Are Epic

February 3, 2012

Rise Against is an awesome rock band that almost no one knows about. I am trying to help everyone realize just who they are.

Rise Against has many songs, one of my favorites being From Heads Unworthy. To hear this song, just click on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35lFiW21Y-0 and listen. This band is basically rock, with quite a bit of hard core music. In my opinion, it is an amazing band. It features many ideas: one of them being world peace, although it does not sound like it. This band also goes against drugs and violence, too. In a particular song (Help is On The Way) the lyrics are:

I have my mother’s dreams

I have my father’s eyes

You can’t take that away from me

Just go ahead and try

The crescent city sleeps

The giants in the sky

Preparing to unleash

Let loose a mighty cry

Can nobody save us?

Will anyone try?

The bayou is burning,

The cypress is dying

And along they’re saying

Help is on the way

Help is on the way

One by land, two by sea

Right there in front of me

Help is on the way

Five thousand feet below

As smoke engulfs the sky

The ocean floor explodes

Eleven mothers cry.

My bones all resonate,

A burning lullaby.

You can’t take that from me,

Just go ahead and try!


That is only part of the lyrics, but you see the feeling and intertwined messages from it. It shows depth. For the full song, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxrf0qBoqsk&feature=related, or http://soundcloud.com/96x/rise-against-help-is-on-the-way.

You can see my reasons for thinking this band is absolutely epic.
