Can music Save the Earth?

In case you missed it, today is… Earth day! 


Throughout the years, many musicians and pop stars used their talents to bring awareness to this planet we all inhabit. With this blog, I would like to pay tribute to some of the artists and songs that will forever be part of this important struggle’s soundtrack.

This cause is inherent to Vegan Nation’s Dream and along with the upcoming release of our Vegan app & Cruelty-free Coin , this is our main focus for the week.

Michaels Jackson — Heal the earth

Probably one of the most recognizable earth songs to date. Back in the innocent days of the ’90s, every child, women and man chanted together “Heal the world, make it a better place”. It became a cultural phenomenon, with many of the most famous artists at the time, performing it live to help raise money to heal the earth.

Since then, Michael Jackson has become very controversial, but in the midst of his hay days, he used his fame and platform to do some good for the planet.

Following his huge success with Heal The Earth, Jackson released another environmental conscious hit. While lyrics like “What have we done to the world Look what we’ve done” are a bit on the nose, there is no doubt he helped turn the attention and blame to the damage mankind brought on.

With this message and strong carnage visuals, he cried for us to stop taking our planet for granted. It might be hard to reconcile with all his dark history that came to light since, but there is no denying the impact he had. Way before everyone was talking about climate change he was singing about it.

The Smiths -Meat Is Murder:

This timeless gem is the title for The Smiths 2nd album from 1984. Some people are just ahead of the curve, and this is definitely the case with Morrisey, the iconic frontman of this 80’s cult band. He was one of the first musicians to utilize his mesmerizing voice to help coin the phrase 

meat is murder” for the general public.

It might not have been as famous as the Michael Jackson anthems, but with Morrissey’s emotional connection to his fans and hard-felt lyrics, his impact is undeniable. ”The flesh you so fancifully fry, Is not succulent, tasty or kind, It’s death for no reason And death for no reason is murder” 

There are thousands of diehard fans who, till this day, claim it was Morrisey and those words that turned them Vegan.

Toto — Africa

An 80’s classic by its own right, this track has become even more popular throughout the years, gaining more popularity and finding a new audience online and across social media. The entire song is a love letter for the dark continent and the origin of mankind.

While this song is not explicitly about the earthlike the others, it is one of the first to shed light on the suffering and destruction caused by man to all species on this beautiful continent. This song was rediscovered by many, as well as the recent cover by the Indi band, Weezer.

Lil dickey — Earth

David Andrew Burd, AKA “ Lil Dicky” is a rapper, comedian and huge innovator. Known for his clever lyrics, humoristic approach and highly creative video’s, his latest hit, titled earth”, is no different. 

Lil Dicky is not one to take himself too seriously but this time he tackles a topic that we can’t effort to make light of.

I like to find ways to impact humanity behind my usual dick and fart jokes” he said to Time magazine . while still using his wit and comedic skills to make it into a fun viral hit. And with the collaboration tradition of this type of songs, Lil Dicky recruits all the biggest stars like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Snoop Dogg (and the list goes on) together and will donate the profits for for a various environmental organizations.

Vegan Nation

In case you haven’t heard, VeganNation has launched the sale of the first vegan coin

And just like every nation needs a currency, every nation needs its own anthem

We know the power of music is universal and can string right into people’s souls. 

This is why we turn now to our community to help create an anthem that will unite us all together!

The first step would be a free association game where everyone can contribute his lyrics and inspire each other. Drop a line, a verse or even an entire anthem if you feel especially creative!

We will later assemble some of the best suggestions, publish the anthem and give full credit to all contributors. Submit your suggestions here by the 26th of May, and stay tuned for the 2nd step of the composition challenge!

And for this important task, Vegan Nation is using some of our leading influencers and musicians to help us pick and choose from all the talent and submissions of the community.

So, if you’re a poet and you know it, this is your time to shine and prove that…

Let’s talk about love. 

With all our ambitions to change the world, we can’t forget what occupies so much of our time and mind. It might seem a bit frivolous to talk about love, with all the important issues we deal with, but we can’t neglect what we all need and desire so much.

Unfortunately, doing the right thing can often complicate things. Love is just another obstacle and unique challenge that vegans deal with. Call us naïve, but we really believe that happy content people will be the first to help us spread the love. 

Love towards people, animals, and our planet.

This is why we decided to shed some light on this topic. We turned to our team and community, to hear from their own experience, and things got heated fast. 

Here is just some of what they had to say:

I’d much rather French kiss my dog then kiss someone that just eat meat

– said Inbar M, our marketing guru – 

The one time I tried to date a none vegan was really uncomfortable so now 

my options have been limited”.

I‘ve turned Vegan last year and my boyfriend is supportive but that has definitely put a strain on our relationship. Planning our future and family together seems more complicated now

– Natalie, one of our community members, shared candidly.

I always try to be inclusive but meat is just not something I can live with

 – said Danielle F, our social media manager, and shared a similar sentiment.

Divorced because of it…

– admitted another avid Facebook member, Monica R.

With all that, it’s not hard to see why there is a real need for a solution. 

And apparently, we‘re not the only one that shares the sentiment. 

FindVegLove is our partner and a project that took on the mission to create 

life-changing matches, long term relationships and love stories in the 

vegan and vegetarian community”.

We here, at VeganNation, command their ambition and were inspired to take initiative. 

We can’t spill the beans on all the details, but you can expect our very own 

Vegan Nation dating event soon!

One Love.
