Rise Against’s song ‘Broken Dreams Inc.’ received the remix treatment this week.

Independent industrial act Health debuted its remix of the song Friday. Rise Against debuted its original song in September as part of the soundtrack to DC Comics’ ongoing Dark KnightsDeath Metal story.

The remix takes Rise Against’s original tune and gives it a much more brooding, subdued take. The vocals are there but they are placed almost under a rich layer of electronics and keyboards, which set the noted tone here.

Front man Tim McIlrath talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview.

“’Broken Dreams, Inc.’ speaks to today’s changing landscape of American society, the opportunities that are available to some but not to others, the people who are able to benefit versus those who get left behind, who suffer and end up as casualties,” said McIlrath.  “How do we level the playing field so everyone can have a real chance at attaining the American Dream? One word, ‘disruption.’  You have to put power into the hands of the people, not business, you have to value people and community over profit.”

“You can’t have a shareholder-run country or a shareholder-run world, a world that values profit above all else, because profit above all else can result in dangerous repercussions for humankind,” added McIlrath.

Veteran punk band Rise Against debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its song ‘Broken Dreams, Inc.’ Tuesday.  The video features scenes from DC’s ongoing Dark KnightsDeath Metal story.  It is the band’s first new song in three years, and is part of the story’s soundtrack.  The soundtrack is scheduled for release at a future date, which is under consideration.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Broken Dreams, Inc.’ is everything that audiences have come to expect from the band over the years, with its rich bass line, steady time keeping and melodic guitar lines and vocal delivery.  While the song is part of the soundtrack for a comic book story line, its lyrical theme applies to the real world, too.

Front man Tim McIlrath talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview.

“’Broken Dreams, Inc.’ speaks to today’s changing landscape of American society, the opportunities that are available to some but not to others, the people who are able to benefit versus those who get left behind, who suffer and end up as casualties,” said McIlrath.  “How do we level the playing field so everyone can have a real chance at attaining the American Dream? One word, ‘disruption.’  You have to put power into the hands of the people, not business, you have to value people and community over profit.”

“You can’t have a shareholder-run country or a shareholder-run world, a world that values profit above all else, because profit above all else can result in dangerous repercussions for humankind,” added McIlrath.
