"Now everybody lately is living up in space/ Flying through transmissions on invisible airwaves/ With everything discovered just waiting to be known..." The shores of New Jersey and New York are indeed still
coping with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy weeks after the storm.
Central Jersey natives The Gaslight Anthem
have put together a tribute of heart- breaking visuals that is reality for thousands. The acoustic ballad "National Anthem" personifies the melancholic mood of the people of NY and NJ. Images of collapsed homes, non-existent piers, and first-responders capture the essence of the destruction, and the hope that people will continue to donate and support to aid the lives of millions who have lost everything.
