(music video) Steppenwolf 1969: ‘Monster’ — “We don’t know how to mind our own business / ‘Cause the whole world’s got to be just like us / Now we are fighting a war over there / No matter who’s the winner we can’t pay the cost / ‘Cause there’s a monster on the loose / It’s got our heads into the noose”

“Written in 1969 in view of the resistors to the Vietnam war, and the monster called government, Look where we are today 2016.”

– –

America, where are you now
Don’t you care about your sons and daughters
Don’t you know we need you now
We can’t fight alone against the monster

(vid) Keith Green 1977: ‘No one believes in me anymore’ — The magazines, the newspapers / Print every word I say / This world is just my spinning top / It’s all like childs-play • I used to have to sneak around / But *now they just open their doors* • I’m gaining power by the hour / They’re falling by the score / You know, it’s getting very easy now / Since no one believes in me anymore

The magazines, the newspapers
Print every word I say 

I used to have to sneak around
But now they just open their doors

It’s getting very easy now
Since no one believes in me anymore

(video) LINKIN PARK tribute to CHRIS CORNELL – ‘One More Light’ – Jimmy Kimmel Live

Chester’s bandmate, Mike Shinoda:

“We were booked to play the show [Jimmy Kimmel Live] so that we could promote our new single ‘Heavy’ and then we heard the news about Chris Cornell and had had a little pow-wow in the dressing room before we went on and we said, ya know, the thing that’s good for the band to do is play ‘Heavy,’ but the right thing to do is play ‘One More Light’ because it’s about the loss of a friend.”

“When we were doing a sound check Chester couldn’t even make it through the song, he was getting halfway through and getting choked up. And even when we did play the whole song, and it was live on TV, or taped for film for TV, he kind of just stopped like towards the end like he missed the last couple lines, just couldn’t finish the song. Fans were crying in the audience, and I think it was cathartic, I think it was good.”

“The message of the song is when you are dealing with something so deep as losing a friend, or in this case somebody you just admire, somebody you look up to when we’re talking about some of these fans in the audience… one of the things I think you can do is reach out to people and offer them community, let them know we’re a family, we’re community, we care about each other. Whether a friend who lost somebody, a family member or whatever, to reach out and let them know even that you’re thinking about them, sometimes that’s enough.” (source)
