The Killers just released a new version of their 2019 single "Land of the Free" with lyrics that reference George Floyd. In the video, Brandon Flowers's sings "how many killings must one man watch in his home" -- “Eight measured minutes and 46 seconds, another boy in the bag -- Another stain on the flag.”

Goo Goo Dolls launched a Live From Home video series. The band will unveil six remotely recorded videos throughout the month. The first, "So Alive."

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Growing up in Texas I have personally experienced racism, my friends have experienced racism. From adolescence we’re taught how to conduct ourselves when we encounter police to avoid the consequences of being racially profiled. I have been numb for too long, calloused when it came to the issues of police brutality. The death of George Floyd was the straw that broke the camels back for me. It was the first time I wept for a man I never met. I am George Floyd, my brothers are George Floyd, and my sisters are George Floyd. I cannot and will not be silent any longer. Just as Abel’s blood was crying out to God, George Floyd is crying out to me. So, I present to you Sweeter.
