new music: sick new track from metal-hip hop band nerds “respect” brings on the rage

March 2, 2016

Genre-bending alt hip-hop/nu metal Band Nerds are back with a sick new single “Respect”—a revolt anthem about black rage, being fed up with socio-economic and racial inequalities, police violence, and the bullshit that is Donald Trump. “America ain’t got love for a nigga[…]and the rich get richer while my people die[..]tell me why it gotta be like this.” An automatic addition to my “Revolution Turn Up” playlist. Bless you, Band Nerds.
