You have company, Miley Cyrus.

A few days after that young singer released a video in defense of the Occupy Wall Street protestors - applauding the participants for standing up for what they believe in - Third Eye Blind has done the same.

This group's latest single, "If There Ever Was A Time," is dedicated to the cause and highlighted by an an audio clip from the incident when police tossed a tear canister into a crowd in Oakland and broke the skull of Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen. Listen below:

"I think college students are going to come to terms with the unfairness of student loans, the hallowing out of jobs from finance based capitalism, and the depletion of public wealth," says singer Stephen Jenkins. "When you take money out of politics, which is what Occupy Wall Street is about for me, you reverse these trends. This song is meant to encourage their participation. I hope we flood this movement with music."

What do you think of celebrities getting involved with Occupy Wall Street?
