Iranian Protest version of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick In The Wall" Goes Viral

Maybe I'm dating myself once again, but remember Pink Floyd's "Another Brick In The Wall" from their rock opera "The Wall"? It appears some young Iranian exiles (two brothers who are members of the Canadian rock band "Blurred Vision") have revamped the song's lyrics (with Pink Floyd's blessing) in an effort to rally support against the authoritarian leadership in Iran. Entitled "Another Brick In The Wall (Hey Ayatollah, Leave Those Kids Alone!" they simply exchange the word teacher for 'mullah' and 'ayatollah', and they have a video (which has gone viral) with a very simple yet powerful message.

It's up to the youth of Iran to take their country back, since they're the ones who got it there in the first place. More info here.
