We Will Occupy. is Stout's salute to the anti-capitalist/big bank movement. Mike continues his tradition of honoring the forgotten heroes of both past and present who struggled and sacrificed for workplace safety, health, and economic justice. In the song The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire he honors the women and men whose tragic deaths led to worker safety laws that we take for granted today. Mike calls attention to the need to continue the fight to protect workers around the world in his song We Came to Work Not To Die. Both songs inspire with feet stomping beats. Mike honors the working class heroes Woody Guthrie in America’s Favorite Son (ode to Woody Guthrie) and in the song Old Warrior he pays tribute to Youngstown writer and activist, Staughton Lynd. He remembers Frankie Domagala in song as one of the many unsung union activists at the Homestead Steel Mill and Local 1397 during the heyday of the plant shutdown struggle in the 1970’s and 80’s. We Are Alive, is Mike's ode to the courageous citizens who fought the shutdown of Braddock Hospital.
