Listen: Alan Moore Does Song For ‘Occupy Wall Street’

Written by Kiel Egging on November 5, 2012

Watchmen and V for Vendetta star Alan Moore has released a song in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement and the ‘hacktivist’ group Anonymous.

Moore’s song – The Decline of English Murder – is said to focus on the greed of banks and the incompetence of government, according to Pitchfork. Moore wrote and performed the song’s vocals – and has enlisted the help of Joe Brown to do the music.

The song has been released to coincide with Anonymous’ Operation Vendetta protest – which is set to draw over 5000 people to re-enact the masked march scene made famous at the end of V for Vendetta.

The track is out now through the Occupy Movement’s own record label, the appropriately-titled Occupation Records. If you download the song through the Occupation Records’ website, you go into the draw to win a ‘V for Vendetta’ mask signed by Moore himself.

Moore visited an Occupy protest at the London Stock Exchange earlier this year, where he voiced his support for the cause: “A tidal wave cannot be said to have succeeded or failed. All that it can be said to have done is changed things. Often monumental … I would say to critics– what are you doing about the current situation. If you are happy with it, what the hell is wrong with you?”
