Buy Stock in Earplugs: Michael Moore to Sing for Occupy Wall Street Benefit

Am I the only one that finds this ironic?

The Associated Press is reporting that Occupy Wall Street is planning a benefit album, the proceeds of which will help fund the movement protesting income inequality.

They hope to raise between $1 million and $2 million with the project.

So I guess not all millions are bad. Apparently, if activist groups have them and not Wall Street, it's totally fine.

I'm sure you're intrigued enough now to want more details, which includes this gem: Michael Moore is planning to sing.

Occupy Wall Street has a benefit album planned with Jackson Browne, Third Eye Blind, Crosby & Nash, Devo, Lucinda Williams and even some of those drummers who kept an incessant beat at Manhattan's Zuccotti Park.

Participants in the protest movement said Wednesday that "Occupy This Album," which will be available sometime this winter, will also feature DJ Logic, Ladytron, Warren Haynes, Toots and the Maytals, Mike Limbaud, Aeroplane Pageant, Yo La Tengo and others.

Activist filmmaker Michael Moore is also planning to sing.
