"Rock the Vote's mission is to engage and build political power for young people in our country.Founded twenty years ago at the intersection of popular culture and politics, Rock the Vote is growing its team and its campaigns in 2010, to support the tidal wave of young people who want to get involved in elections and seize the power of the youth vote to create political and social change.Over the last two decades, Rock the Vote has registered more young people to vote than any other organization or campaign, and we intend to register and turn out millions more in 2010 – and to be the best-informed place online where young people can find out what they need to know before casting a ballot.After years of declining participation at the polls, a new generation of young voters has arrived. Millions of new voters between the ages of 18 – 29 cast ballots in 2004, 2006, and 2008. Rock the Vote is dedicated to building the political power and clout of the Millennial Generation by registering and turning out young people, by forcing the candidates to campaign to them, and by making politicians pay attention to youth and the issues they care about once in office."

Metaphor of the Music - Patterns by Band of Skulls
(music behind video)
There's one for the sorrow, and two for
the joy, and three for the girls, and four
for the boys. There's five for the silver, and six for
the gold, and seven for the secrets that
are never to be told. There's eight in the river and nine in
my head, and ten of the worst kind sleeping in my bed. There's a pattern, there's a pattern,
there's a pattern there to follow, A pattern, there's a pattern, there's a pattern there to follow.
There's one for the money, and two for the sin, and three for the time when authority kicks in. There's four for the reason, and five for the tricks, but nothing's gonna save you from the six, six, six. There's seven for the days, and seven for the nights, seven for the heavens, and the tunnels and the lights. There's a pattern, there's a pattern, there's a pattern there to follow, A pattern, there's a pattern, there's a pattern there to follow.
