Spirit Family Reunion are on the side of the protesters. They've written and recorded a song to show solidarity with the protesters, with all proceeds going to support them. "Goin' Out to Cannon Ball" is written completely about the standoff, and is really a good old fashioned protest folk song. A lot of songs try to be a little too artsy with their lyrics about social issues, but "Goin' Out to Cannon Ball" is more like Crosby Stills Nash and Young's "Ohio" where there is no question as to the subject matter. The opening lines are "Up in North Dakota where the old Missouri runs / Morton County police carry military guns." It's an important, powerful song in a time where there are shockingly few.
