HEALTH remix Rise Against’s Broken Dreams, Inc.
“We didn’t really know what to expect,” explains Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath of HEALTH’s totally new rendition of the track, “but we were all blown away by it. I was super-impressed by the way they made the song their own. They found melodies in it that I didn’t anticipate, and they found some of the bone, the skeleton, and rearranged it; it worked and was really cool.”
Of the meaning behind the single, Tim previously explained: “Broken Dreams, Inc. speaks to today’s changing landscape of American society, the opportunities that are available to some but not to others, the people who are able to benefit versus those who get left behind, who suffer and end up as casualties. How do we level the playing field so everyone can have a real chance at attaining the American Dream? One word: ‘Disruption.’
“You have to put power into the hands of the people, not business, you have to value people and community over profit. You can’t have a shareholder-run country or a shareholder-run world, a world that values profit above all else, because profit above all else can result in dangerous repercussions for humankind.”
