NYHC band Indecision have had wide-reaching influence with their lyrical phrase "for those I love I will sacrifice" for years. You can read an article all about it's most recent impact here.
Quote"I have no idea if that guy has heard my band," Brannan said. "I know some firefighters and cops that got it after 9/11." He nevertheless has reached out to Hockenberry's family, and plans to do a benefit concert for the wounded solider in Brooklyn, where the band originated. "It's very sobering and puts things into perspective," said Brannan, in an interview this afternoon. "It makes you want to do everything you can for someone."
