The Last Stand (Legend of LooTz) was created in May of 2021 to embody the culture and community behind Pirate Chain and the world-wide freedom movement. It was inspired by the story of LooTz, a legendary force behind the evolution of ARRR.
The unfolding of this song was just shy of a miracle…
Matt had finished recording the vocals on his latest EP, Aquarian while at NADA Recording Studio. He had said to his mother Carolynne, “Mom, if I record this song it could be huge!” She said, “Do it.”
Matt proceeded to add an additional day on to the studio (which was shockingly available). He finished writing the song the night before and recorded the entire song in one day, less than 24 hours total.
The single was premiered on the official Pirate Chain YouTube channel and has gone on to be a widely recognized anthem within the freedom and privacy crypto community.
The Last Stand (Legend of LooTz) by Matt Welsh (BLUVNBU)
I work to eat, and sleep, and just repeat. I wonder is this the life for me. I followed all the rules and did my best. But, tragedy put my will to the test. When I found some answers I spoke up. Then, I was casted to the shadows, they chained me up . No, I won’t forget the things that they said . And you don’t know the places I have been. People, said that I was wrong. All along, I stayed strong. Yo Ho. Batten down the hatches. This is the calm before the storm. The system has been broken. And soon will be no more. The tools they can enslave us. Or they can set us free. This is the last stand for our freedom and our privacy. No, I won’t forget the things that they said. And you don’t know the places I have been. People, said that I was wrong. All along, I stayed strong. I’m gonna change the world for you my son. Here I am, right where I belong. Yo Ho, Yo Ho. Now we have a chance to tear this down. So we can build again and make it sound. People, said that I was wrong. All along, I stayed strong. I’m gonna change the world for you my son. Here I am, right where I belong. Yo Ho, Yo Ho. Yo Ho, Yo Ho, Yo Ho
