‘Occupy DC’ gets its own song by YouTube success Remy Munasifi (VIDEO)

(A publicity photo from 2009. (
Remy Munasifi, the comedic rapper who gave the Internet the viral hits 'Metro Song' and ‘Raise the Debt Ceiling’ is back to poke a little musical fun at the ‘Occupy DC’ and ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests.

Munasifi’s latest is a folksy dispatch from the scene of last week’s protests, released in partnership with the libertarian organization ReasonTV. A lyrics sampling:

“They’re saying that freedom

has done little to stop

Corporations from keeping

the wealth at the top

But at what point in history

would a kid and a king

both have clean water to drink?”

The Clarendon-based musician may have no trouble striking YouTube gold again with this one — “Raise the Debt Ceiling,” released in July, had over 360,000 views.
