Desaparecidos Salute the Rebels in ‘Anonymous’ and ‘The Left Is Right’ – Song Premiere

Conor Oberst-fronted rockers champion recent uprisings


Zach Hollowell

On February 7th, the recently reunited, Conor Oberst-fronted post-hardcore band Desaparecidos will follow up their take-down of Sheriff Joe Arpaio with a new, self-released seven-inch single of two politically charged rockers, "The Left Is Right" and "Anonymous." The former is a boisterous salute to the efforts of the Occupy Movement and the 99 percent – "If one must die to save the 99/ Maybe it's justified," muses Oberst – that closes with a triumphant pop-punk explosion. "Anonymous," meanwhile, is a tribute to the notorious hacking group of the same name driven by a barn-burning guitar riff and a chorus that turns their credo "You can't stop us, we are Anonymous/ Expect us, we are Anonymous!" into a howling chorus.
