Tom Morello led the Occupy Wall Street protest from Bryant Park to lower Manhattan on Tuesday, May 1 along with Das Racist, Dan Deacon and Immortal Technique.
"Shall I teach you the words to 'Worldwide Rebel Songs' and we all sing it together?" Morello asked the crowd, which hummed with agreement. "Alright, it goes like this."
In video of the performance, currently circulating the web, Morello hearkened back to Woodie Guthrie, whom he said would have been leading the protest were he alive; he then played Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land":
"They censored this song when you were kids but we're gonna put the real words back in. We have two minutes left. If they pull the plug, don't you dare f*****g stop!"
Das Racist then took the stage and played a pair of songs—"Michael Jackson" and "Rainbow in the Dark."
