', with the proceeds going to WhyHunger's COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund. In a social media post Tom Morello shared his motivations behind releasing the song.
"Hunger is a crime. You can help in the fight against hunger through the power of music. A live version of my song, 'Save the Hammer for the Man,' was released exclusively through a platform called @SongAidOfficial
. All streaming proceeds from the song will be donated to the @WhyHungerPix
