Exclusive: Free Download of “Anonymous,” the New Single by Conor Oberst’s Desaparecidos


Desaparecidos Press Here

Desaparecidos, the recently reunited, politically minded rock-and roll-outfit led by Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst, is gearing up for its first New York-area shows in more than a decade—this coming Tuesday and Wednesday at NYC’s Webster Hall. For the occasion, the band is offering MoJo readers an exclusive free download of its new single “Anonymous,” a rambunctious ode to the shadowy hacktivist group (which we’ve written about on several recent occasions). Unlike so many contemporary protest songs that reek of moralistic windbaggery, “Anonymous,” actually rocks pretty hard as Oberst bellows: 

“Slay Goliath! Slay Goliath!”
The flashmob all held up their phones
But you cannot predict when the students riot
And a big machine always moves slow
So throw your little stone

You can’t stop us
We are Anonymous
You can’t stop us
We are Anonymous
Expect us
We know what all of us know
