Metal Remix Of Greta Thunberg's United Nation Speech To Benefit Greenpeace
A heavy-metal remix of Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg's Sept. 23 now-viral United Nations Climate Action speech will be used to benefit Greenpeace, a worldwide non-profit environmental organization.
The remix, made with metal music placed over the speech, was made by New York thrash metal band Suaka's drummer G.T., a.k.a. John Mollusk, and has garnered over 4.1 million views. Swedish label Despotz Records is releasing the single and will have all profits go to Greenpeace.
In the speech, the 16-year-old activist calls out the corporations and those in power who are not addressing and doing their part to stop the climate crisis from growing. After the remix emerged, Thunberg had some fun with it too.
"I have moved on from this climate thing... From now on I will be doing death metal only!!" the teen tweeted.
Despotz Records has also launched a campaigned called #GREENMETAL to unite metal towards environmental action. You can buy or stream the single via Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, YouTube or Deezer/Amazon.
