Brad Skistimas, more commonly known by his moniker Five Times August, has received praise from many for his rock and roll music.
Skistimas posted about his appreciation for his viewers on X.
"One Million Views, Baby" he said. "Thank you all so much."
Baste Records, an independent label known for supporting the counter-cultural movement in the entertainment industry, backed the anthem, The American Beat reports.
"When 2020 came around and we're starting to see this sort of tyranny creep in little by little, and I'm looking around asking, 'where are my heroes,' that became an issue for me, and that's one of the reasons why I started speaking out. So that idea sat with me for a while and I ended up writing a song about it called 'Ain't No Rock And Roll,'" Skistimas said as he spoke about what inspired his music in an interview with HighWire.
Skistimas also remarked that the joke for last couple of years is that "Rage Against the Machine has now become "Raging for the Machine."
"We saw so many artists require vaccination shots and segregate their audiences ... it gut punched me into thinking you know, 'is rock and roll just a farce at the end of the day?'" Skistimas recounted. "There was never a greater time to stand up against the man than the last three years ... very few of them that you would have expected to speak up, spoke up."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
