This band was supposed to be under wraps until it was time to release the first album, but given the sudden urgency of the Occupy movement, the group is rising up to help the cause. The "404 Device" is an Industrial Hip Hop band vocalized by King Pheenix and MadHatter, orchestrated by Untested Methods, and features thrash guitars by Josh C., who you've heard on Untested Methods' RAT21POW20 EP.
The album is underway, but the action on Wall Street, in other states, and now in other countries calls for an anthem. Untested Methods and King Pheenix got to work and cooked up this single for the masses out there fighting on the streets to bob their heads to and get their blood boiling.
We give you "Occupied," the revolutionary anthem of the 99%.
We the people, see the truth self evident Resonant, rotten to the core, smell it, Mr. President Falling to the bottom and the rocks are seeming relevant Dropped off a cliff by a donkey and an elephant Selling it to the highest bidder, freedom's a commodity Trade it on Wall Street while you're hearkening equality Sparking the economy, lost jobs and turncoats Bottom line's a special hell, hoping that you burn slow No, let the words flow down where they stop and tread Gathering of masses, grasping for a common thread 99 percent, looking for a change in clout The poor go to jail while the criminals get bailed out Tout your interests while the lowest go hungry Gloving the tax money, the pit is steady running... dry And you think us standing here is stunning? We put our money where our mouth is, your mouth where it is for money You feeling the noise? Steady checking the signs, beeline to your front door Occupied Can't get us to move, hell, or even subside, 'til change has come forth Occupied Tired of your bullshit, nowhere to hide, we'll be waiting right here Occupied Corporate greed meet the true bottom line, we will be your new fear Occupied Standing at your gates, barrel down at your doorstep Voice reverberate, for a world of support next Growing ever larger, evolution of raw text Like a hockey game, no balance and all checks Spec, everything that you never wanted seen United force cracking at the heart of your machine Revolve the black screens and capturing the eyes Reaction of a country with a new sign, Occupied.
