I thought the Babblers would appreciate this...

Download their song here

"We felt it was important to comment on where the US appears to be heading now. A war in Iraq will not resolve our problems. It can only result in the deaths of many innocent civilians and US troops. If we are truly striving for safety, we need to build friendships, not try to bully the rest of the world."
- Adam Yauch

"Being together, writing and recording, we felt it would be irresponsible not to address whatís going on in the world while the events are still current. It didnít make sense to us to wait until the entire record was finished to release this song."
- Mike D

"This song is not an anti-American or pro-Saddam Hussein statement. This is a statement against an unjustified war."
- Adam Horovitz

I'm a big fan of the BBoys, and I defintely appreciate the message of this tune, but is it just me, or does it sound really rushed? Not up to Beastie par musically.
