Rise Against Tackle Bullying in 'Make It Stop (September's Children)' Video


The new music video follows three teens being pushed to the brink by their classmates while the rock band led by Tim McIlrath perform in a high school gymnasium.

Rise Against have released their new music video for "Make It Stop (September's Children)", their new single from "Endgame". Showing their support for LGBT community, the rock band fronted by Tim McIlrath team up with the It Gets Better Project and pick up the theme of bullying, homophobia and suicides for the clip.

Featuring the band performing the song in the high school gymnasium, the music video follows three teens as they experience and are pushed to the brink because of the bullying from their peers in high school. It also includes snippets of multiple YouTube submissions provided by the It Gets Better Project, in which individuals share their stories and let others know that "it gets better".

Speaking of the inspiration behind the song itself, lead singer Tim told MTV News, "When the month of September rolled around, and the wave of gay-teen suicides happened, I realized there needed to be a song about this, and also because the rock scene in general kind of fails to comment about this stuff - it sort of doesn't comment about this stuff; it largely ignores this kind of thing."

"And rock being a male-dominated, testosterone-driven place that I've been in the eye of the hurricane now for several years, I realized that it can be a place that can perpetuate homophobic behavior unless it's addressed by bands like us," he said. "The message is: It can get better, it does get better, give it a chance to get better, don't end your life prematurely. And don't give credence to all these bullies that would give you all this crap and try to make your adolescence something that's hard to deal with."
