The protest anthem of the year has arrived just in time to play and replay before you cast your vote on November 6th.
I have been a casual fan of Imagine Dragons for a few years now but after watching Dan Reynolds’s documentary, Believer on HBO I find myself gravitating toward their music more and more. If you’ve been a reader of this little site for a while now, then you’re well aware of my love-affair with powerful life anthems and Imagine Dragons may have just released the perfect one.
I’m not scared of what you’re gonna tell me
No, I’m not scared of the beast in the belly
Fill my cup with endless ambition
And paint this town with my very own vision
Look, I’m an expert in nothing; but I do know that we are in the midst of the most important midterm election of this generation. I won’t pretend to know all of the facts but I can share my opinion as honestly and genuinely as possible. So here is what I think: VOTE BLUE.
I wholeheartedly disagree with our current administration and I believe that we must uproot the entire system to try to fix the mess that Trump has made in his short time in office. I believe that Republicans will not stand up to Trump and the atrocities that he does on a daily basis so I am voting BLUE and I urge you to do the same. I often feel helpless and full of anxiety when I think about November 6th and yet again music comes in to save the day.
Imagine Dragons have created a protest anthem that contains the kind of pep talk that is necessary to go into the voting booth and try to make a difference.
Lately, I find myself looking at the tiniest things on my day-to-day to try to find some hope. Yet Imagine Dragons just went ahead and handed me some hope set to the beat of a powerful drum and accompanied by passionate vocals. Consider myself absolutely inspired.
But now it’s ’bout time to raise up and petition
Please get out and vote on November 6th our livelihoods depend on it.
