Anti-Flag "1915" Lyric Video - Filmed in Thailand on recent Southeast Asia tour 2012. The General Strike Out everywhere March 20, 2012.

Joe Hill may have been the 1st punk rock musician. He didn't have the same aesthetic to his sound, but he certainly had the attitude. He fought diligently for human rights. He questioned nationalism at what we can only believe was it's peak. He inspired so many people while alive and for sure even more after his death.

He was killed in November of 1915 by firing squad for what many believe was a murder he did not commit. Joe believed he was worth more to the labour movement as a dead martyr then if he was alive. He was cremated, his ashes placed into around 600 envelopes according to Wobbly (IWW - International Workers of The World) folklore, they were sent many places, sprinkled at places he loved, ingested by our dear friend and legend Billy Bragg, one envelope that read "Joe Hill Murdered By The Capitalist Class" was seized by the US Postal Service in 1917 for its "subversive potential".

Often, we have to look backwards for inspiration on how to proceed forward.

The song 1915 is us doing just that.
