how many rock/metal songs have a title like “rise,” “rise up,” “rise against,” etc? christ, that sucks. first off, it’s lame. i can just picture the artists writing the songs, imagining them to be real anthems for their generation, picturing their songs being becoming the soundtrack to some kind of revolution. how sad when NO ONE GIVES A FUCK about their shitty songs. secondly, the theme is so overdone that any song about it would have to be very different to stand out from the glut of other ‘come on people, open your eyes to reality‘ and ‘look out establishment, we’re coming for you‘ paint-by-numbers arena rock/metal anthems. here’s an example.
