"By making this concert, we are doing something positive to make people look, listen, and hopefully donate. When people are starving, it should be looked upon as one united problem. Sometimes I do feel helpless. This is one of those times I can do my bit." -Freddie Mercury
Nirvana were playing ‘Jesus don’t want me for a sunbeam” at a concert. Kurt Cobain suddenly stopped and ran upstage to stick up for a girl being harassed by a man in the audience. Meanwhile Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear take the piss out of the guy.
In 2009 a couple from the UK started a facebook campaign to make rage against the machine’s “killing in the name” Christmas #1. The song sold 500,000 copies beating the 4 year run of x factor winners. All the proceeds went to homeless charities.
