As the years have gone by, you may have forgotten that Foster The People’s breakout track Pumped Up Kicks is about a boy who terrorises his class with his father’s gun…the song is ultimately an anti-gun song, but as the band played a show in Charlotte, North Carolina the night following the tragic events in Las Vegas, “it felt wrong” according to the band. So instead Foster The People spoke out against violence, promoted tougher gun registration across America, and told us to love each other. Every single day. Then the band opted out of their biggest hit for a cover of Love by John Lennon…who died due to gun violence. Read more from Foster The People here and see the song below.
