Tom Morello is a man of the people, and he's proving it by releasing a live version of his 2011 track "Save The Hammer For The Man," with proceeds benefiting WhyHunger's COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund.

"Hunger is a crime. You can help in the fight against hunger through the power of music," the guitarist wrote in an Instagram post. "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 Rapid Response Fund, helping those directly affected by COVID-19...Stream. Listen. Fight Hunger."

The performance is from Morello's 2019 show in Los Angeles. See his Instagram post and watch the live version of "Save The Hammer For The Man" below.

Morello recently revealed he's recording with the first guitar he ever bought — a $50 SG knockoff that doesn't stay in tune. Though he didn't mention what he's recording, the Rage Against The Machine guitarist has released two songs since quarantine began: 2020's protest anthem "Stand Up," which features Shea Diamond, the Bloody Beetroots, and Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds, and an acoustic tribute to Nat Turner's Rebellion, "You Belong To Me."
