Grammy-nominated Five For Fighting’s John Ondrasik joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky on The Federalist Radio Hour, where he discusses and performs his new song titled “Blood On My Hands.” The protest song about the recently botched withdrawal from Afghanistan has already surpassed well over a quarter of a million views on YouTube. Ondrasik discusses how some band members disagree with the message of his song, how the music industry is no longer interested in fighting “The Man,” and how artists can confront cancel culture.
