About

This video was first published to YouTube on 9 June 2015. Since that time, it has had 25 million views. The description here is from Wikipedia:

Renegades” is a song by American rock band X Ambassadors. It was released as the second single from the band’s debut studio album VHS on March 3, 2015. It peaked inside the top ten in ten countries, including France, Germany, Canada and Poland, where it reached number one. In the United States, the song peaked at number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified Platinum by the RIAA. The song was nominated for the “Top Rock Song” award at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. The song was leveraged as a commercial tie-in with the release of the Jeep Renegade. It was delivered very quickly, just a few days after the request was sent in to Interscope Records as the song was nearly complete when Jeep first approached Interscope. It has been the band’s most successful song so far. “We’re trying not to get too caught up in everything,” X Ambassadors vocalist Sam Harris said. “We’re just glad people like [‘Renegades’] and that it’s having a positive effect on them.” The song was also featured in the second season of The Flash.

Lyrics

Run away with me
Lost souls and reverie
Running wild and running free
Two kids, you and me

And I say
Hey, hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegades

Long live the pioneers
Rebels and mutineers
Go forth and have no fear
Come close the end is near

And I say hey, hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegades

All hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws
Spielberg’s and Kubrick’s

It’s our time to make a move
It’s our time to make amends
It’s our time to break the rules
Let’s begin

And I say hey, hey hey hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Leaving like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegades

Black Bloc Anthem – “You Are Not Alone” by Alan Walker (Music Video)

On 1 Dec 2016, Norwegian record producer and DJ Alan Walker launched “You Are Not Alone” as what seems to be a Black Bloc Anthem. In two months, the video has had 164 million views which is expected to climb. Walker’s music video “Faded” has had 932 million views, making his cumulative reach for two videos at over 1 billion views. Walkers recent videos show what appear to be people dressed as black bloc activists.

According to Wikipedia:

Most of the video was filmed in Norway, focusing on Walker’s home town Bergen, and included panoramic shots of nearby tourist attractions such as Ulriken and Trolltunga in Odda. Some parts were also filmed at prominent locations in Europe, including London, Paris and Berlin. Some of the footage in the video are submitted by Walker’s fans around the world. (source)

The term Black Bloc originally referred to a form of protest action where participants would dress in black, and cover their faces. The “black bloc movement” is growing to become a global force of anonymous loosely interconnected occupy-like protest sub-groups that can be immediately called upon to unify and organize world-wide protests, marches, events, and direct actions. The global organization includes event organizers, leaders, media content producers, gamers, hacktivists, and people with other skill sets.
