    Had I not discovered the "Body Of War" soundtrack & documentary, I would not have discovered this (and many OTHER) cool tracks! Again, awesome COLLECTION of artists on here. This is ONE of the tracks I enjoy. Even if you don't like EVERY track on the album, you're sure to find SOMETHING you'll like and perhaps discover new tracks/artists you didn't know about before.

    Love this song. I love the cd that this song came from. Yell Fire is 1 everyone should have in thier collection. He is rockin' and dropping a knowledge all to a groovy bassline.

    brave? i agree I dont know about brave....but Franti is saying what he believes, and actually making positive, quality music to get these ideas the kids at his shows! War should be spoken up against by all!!

    brave? really? Franti & Spearhead are great, don't get me wrong, but come on. NoFX, Anti-flag, Bad Religion have all said this for years.

    I am obsessed with this song. The bass line is so groovy, and the lyrics are so honest and daring. This band is so brave...
