Solid Rock 2010

A song that I played frequently on Music with a Message, my radio show a couple of years ago was Goanna's Solid Rock. This song, from the 1980s, is a well known Australian anthem that speaks of the sacred land of Australia and its important to the country's Indigenous people.

Listening to Triple J (Australia's ABC Youth Radio station) this afternoon, I heard an adaptation of this song by an Australian Hip-Hop group called Street Warriors. The adaptation takes the Solid Rock anthem and restyles it as a hip-hop track while adding to the passion and intensity of the original song by sampling Indigenous Australians in the background. It was pleasing to hear this song covered and changed in a way that brings the sentiments of the pro-land rights message into this century.

Check out the track on their MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/streetwarriorsmusic
