“The World Wide Rebel Tour is a virtual tour spanning the entire planet. No one has ever toured 42 countries in one day. Until now. From Malawi to Myanmar, from Uzbekistan to the U.S.A., people’s voices and struggles have made their way into my music. On May 1st, I’m returning the favor with this global rebel rocking throwdown. Free. Everywhere. May Day. What is the World Wide Rebel Tour? Remember that old Coca-Cola commercial? ‘I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony…?’ It’s like THAT…but with class warfare." - Tom Morello: The Nightwatchman
The 30-minute documentary was directed by Bobby Roth and was filmed at Henson Studios in Los Angeles in August of 2011. The film features a Q&A with Morello, mixed with live performances of “Black Spartacus Heart Attack Machine,” “Save The Hammer For The Man,” “It Begins Tonight,” and “World Wide Rebel Songs,” all selections featured on his acclaimed 2011 The Nightwatchman album World Wide Rebel Songs.
There are 42 country-specific versions of the documentary. The country-specific version features an interviewer asking Tom questions in their native language including 1 question unique to that country and only available on that version. Tom answers are subtitled in the native language.
