Tom Morello commented, "'We Are The 99%' is a song inspired by the global Occupy movement. I wanted to capture the excitement and energy of people fighting for change and make sure the song was free to anyone who wants it. Tim McIlrath and Serj Tankian lent their amazing talents to the song and we incorporated chants from the original Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park as well. It's my hope that songs like this will provide a rocking soundtrack for those who have a vision of a more just planet and strengthen their resolve to fight on."
"Ryan Williams was very generous with his time mixing the song at such short notice," added Morello. "A number of my albums have been mastered here at Bernie's in the past, and his son Paul did a great job mastering this song for a great cause. I am very appreciative of everyone who pitched in."
