Mick Fleetwood, the Gaslight Anthem, the Avett Brothers, Nicole Atkins, Passion Pit and others have united with Move for Hunger's RebuildRecover to help restore New Jersey coastal towns devastated last month by Hurricane Sandy. As part of the efforts, these artists have recorded public service announcements asking for your help. "We're all in this together, for the long haul," says Fleetwood. "We are restoring, rebuilding and recovering the communities that are so dear to our hearts by getting donations directly to those in need." All donations will support relief efforts.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
