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."

Weinman seems to be taking the lead on the project, as he and bassist Eric Avery have been jamming in his house and both he and Avery have been tweeting about the events. Weinman has hinted that they are planning to release snippets as the project progresses."

For those of you who enjoy indie movies, Hesher came out on DVD yesterday. This was a highly anticipated release in indie circles, and has ties to the music community because of its metal-based soundtrack. It stars two of the biggest names in the industry today with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Natalie Portman, and Rainn Wison (The Office) is also in it. Check out a behind-the-scenes video here, and a "Sketch Book" special feature from the DVD here. If you're intrigued, read my review of the movie.
