Angels against war: Peace Song of the Day for 2/19

Angels & Airwaves is not the usual kind of group that makes the Peace Song of the Day list. They are an alternative rock band, in the Space Rock style. Though, one of their songs clearly shows the horrors of war, and points to peace. Hope you find it interesting.

“The War” by Angels & Airwaves is the Peace Song of the Day. The song is made extra singable by a chorus of “Oh’s”. (In some live versions, they are almost a yo-oh rock yodel, which the audience can sing-a-long with.)

Excerpt from lyrics:

The War
Angels & Airwaves

Why wont you tell me that
It’s almost over
Why must this?
Tear my head
Inside out

And the houses
Laid out like targets
With the deafening sound
We watched them all go down…

The Duchess’s transcription of the “Oh-oh” part to this song:

O-o ohhhh-oh
o-o-oh o-oh


The Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
