Rock Against Hate
Musicians Making A Difference

"“Friend of a Friend” is based on a couple of real stories I heard from older female relatives. Prior to the Roe decision in 1973, in many states, women who needed an abortion had to gamble they’d live through the procedure, remain free of infection, and not get arrested for a felony. We can’t go back to those days. As a woman, a mother, and a grandmother I have to support other women and this song is a start." - Katye Kellye & The Interruption

"The Rock Against Hate series not only gathers some of the most dedicated members of the music scene, but also seeks to help others by consciously providing support to communities who need it. In these uncertain times, it's refreshing to see such an involved assortment of individuals come together for a common goal. Thanks for letting me be a part of it once again!" - J. Thoubbs

""Forgotten Child of an Absent Father" is a true story - and I submitted it in response to the argument that a fetus is a living child and the Christian God cares for all children. To this day (and I'm 56 years old) I cannot find one person to explain why God never rescued me from horrible physical, sexual, and mental abuse I suffered from birth to well into my 40's. If they are going to force births, they need to provide the same diligence to lifetime care. This isn't a debate about when life begins, it's a patriarchal religious power grab." - Pearl Manhattan

"A Woman has the right to choose when they want children, like a man has the right to be free, like all life has the right to live." - The Maravines

"When I heard about this project, I knew I wanted to donate a track, I also wanted to make something new so I can put my heart into it. I looked for vocal samples under the term 'women power' and found the sample, 'the people are the power' I sat right up in my chair and the flow was on, over the next several hours, I worked on the track and believe I found something powerful to help promote the message that women have a right to choose what happens to their bodies. We are the power, men and women, we need each other. It's silly we even need this project, however I'm more than happy to add to it. Thank you Lazlo for coordinating this and creating this opportunity to help Planned Parenthood during a time they need it most." - Irish Fitz

"I feel so grateful to be able to express myself via this collective statement, rather than sitting by feeling depressed about the whole thing." - The Cucumbers
