London, July 30 (ANI): Pink Floyd’s song ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ is being used as an anthem for Iran’s resistance movement.

Two exiled Iranian brothers have reworked the 1979 song, which was released in the same year as the Islamic Revolution, reports the Telegraph.

Roger Waters, a founding member of Pink Floyd, gave the right to Blurred Vision, a duo living in Canada, to remake the classic under the title ‘Another Brick in the Wall (Hey Ayatollah, Leave Those Kids Alone)’.

The video, featuring images of Ayatollah Khamenei and footage of street violence following Iran’s disputed elections last year, has become a YouTube sensation, attracting more than 100,000 hits.

It has been made by Sepp, 28, and Sohl, 35, who do not reveal their surname for fear of putting the lives of family members in Iran at danger.

The duo hopes that the song’s “anti-authoritarian message” will highlight to the world the suffering of many people in Iran.

The song is available for download on iTunes with all proceeds going to Amnesty International. (ANI)
