All proceeds from the song, organised by Gogol Bordello’s Ukraine-born frontman Eugene Hutz, will go to Kind Deeds, a charitable organization helping wounded Ukrainian soldiers regain mobility with prosthetics and rehabilitation.

Musicians collaborating on the track include former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, Green Day drummer Tre Cool, Fugazi bassist Joe Lally, Agnostic Front vocalist Roger Miret, Ministry guitarist Monte Pittman, Puzzled Panther and Sasha from Ukrainian band Kazka.

Gogol Bordello’s Eugene Hutz states: “Punk and hardcore is always there to show support to a friend in trouble. Especially when [it’s the] entire nation. Here, living legends of punk and hardcore who always meant so much to me, come together to show their much needed support for Ukrainian freedom fighters.
