Lanny Cordola of The Miraculous Love Kids / Guitar With A Girl commented of the cover:

“I feel a moral and spiritual imperative to awaken humanity, in particular my brethren in the music community to help give a voice to the horrible plight of poverty-stricken, war-torn girls. Why girls? Because they have it the worst — forced into childhood marriages, stripped of their rights, and exploited in every way imaginable.”

“We wanted to do something moody — a kind of gothic hymn — and we gravitated towards the dark yet hopeful spirit of this song. The lines in the song — ’some of them want to use you, some of them want to get used by you, some of them want to abuse you, some of them want to be abused — really resonate, reflecting these troubled times. But then a glimmer of optimism — ‘hold your head up…keep your head up’ — gently flows through the voices of these girls who have experienced the worst that humanity has to offer.”

Morello added:

“These girls are so brave and so inspiring. It is an honor to make music with them.”

Cordola has been raising funds and awareness via miraculouslovekids.org for young female victims of war and poverty in Afghanistan through his and their musical endeavors such as the one seen below.
