Rise Against - Hero of War (In a bunker in Afghanistan)

Follow by Email
Rise Against - Hero of War (cover) Recorded in a bunker at COP Dash Towp, Afghanistan in 2011. In the little free time we had, we played guitar, sang songs, and smoked hookah (nothing illegal). This was our way of unwinding and escaping from our environment. This was our favorite song at the time. I apologize for the video quality, it was dark, and it was all we had to record with. I hope you enjoy the video.


Lunatic Fringe : I hope you boys all returned home safely. God bless.

Drwuwho : Soldiers stationed and singing this song. I have no words, it's simple perfection.

Leon Weidinger : Hope they survived..

TG_Yoda PlayS : I've got tears in my eyes omf this is emotional af

Markie from the hills of Pennsylvania. : This is awesome. God bless these guys.

Damir Radoncic : This version is so much better than the original since the singers don't have to emulate their feelings with respect to the words being sang. The second time the chorus is being sang, it should be sang in a sarcastic way but they sing it in a proud way - indicating that they identify with the song in a different way than was intended by the songwriter. When they came to the part about beating a man and pissing in his hands, some chose not to sing or did not sing it with the same conviction as they sang the previous part - hopefully indicating a comprehension of remorse. Again, this version is so much more beautiful and multi facetted than the original one, thank you. Greetings from a swedish pacifist.
