Tonight, we feature my favorite ringtone. It’s the song that has played when certain people call me on my cell phone for the last two years. Tonight, we are all Renegades.
The song is performed by the X Ambassadors and the official video features people with varying degrees of disabilities and how they cope with and overcome obstacles to triumph. These people are modern-day renegades. It should be noted that band member Casey Harris has been blind since birth. Vocalist Sam Harris stated,
“We wanted to make it(the video)emotional and personal—and that’s as personal as it gets for me, Casey and the band.”
The song was nominated for the “Top Rock Song” award at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. Renegades was introduced as the accompanying track with the band, X Ambassadors for the new Jeep Renegade television commercial in 2015.
“Long live the pioneers
Rebels and mutineers
Go forth and have no fear
Come close and lend an ear
All hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws
Spielberg’s and Kubrick’s
It’s our time to make a move
It’s our time to make amends
It’s our time to break the rules
Renegades and X Ambassadors is your “Saturday Diversion”
