Published Oct 01, 2019Last week, a clip of climate activist Greta Thunberg's powerful UN address achieved further online virality thanks to a version set to death metal. As that video approaches four million views, the metal version has now become a charity single.
Video creator John Mollusk, who wrote and recorded the crushing musical accompaniment, has teamed up with Swedish label Despotz Records to release the single "How Dare You."
You can hear it below and can check out its artwork above, which features Thunberg decked out in some wild corpse paint.
Despotz Records noted that all profit generated from sales of the track will go to Greenpeace, and hope to mobilize metal fans to stand up for the environment and land the single a spot on the Billboard charts using the hashtag #greenmetal.
"Greta embodies rock music in its full meaning," the label wrote in a statement. "She is uncompromising, tough as hell and doesn't give a shit about what people think of her. She is not afraid to tell you about the scariest things imaginable without beautifying it a bit, and that is what metal is about."
Mollusk's musical creation inevitably found its way back to Thungberg herself, who tweeted over the weekend, "I have moved on from this climate thing... From now on I will be doing death metal only!!"
"How Dare You" can be purchased digitally here.
