Our favorite virtual band Gorillaz has stopped monkeying around and released what UPROXX describes as an “apocalyptic” music video. Hallelujah Money, featuring the elusive Benjamin Clementine, is their first single after their six year hiatus. They released it just in time for President Donald Trump’s inauguration and no, it’s not by chance.
This virtual quartet created by Damon Albarn (Blur) and Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl) has always been vocal on the issues of hard-hitting reality. They address this through their art, may it be their songs or the videos that come with them. Gorillaz wants to address another 3D problem called Trump. 90s and hip-hop kids, it’s time to scream hallelujah — the band is back to help keep us woke!
Since six years could give us temporary amnesia on the times they made us politically aware, here are six instances when Gorillaz made us socially aware before being ‘woke’ was even a thing.
