“Hey, Ayatollah, leave those kids alone!”

A Toronto-based rock band is garnering worldwide attention after remaking Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” into a new anthem — “Hey, Ayatollah, leave those kids alone!” — as a sign of solidarity with Iranians fighting against Tehran’s regime.

Blurred Vision, formed in 2007 by brothers Sepp, 28, and Sohl, 35, who fled Iran with their family in 1986, was inspired to cover the classic tune after watching protests in Iran unfold over the controversial reelection of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

“We did a show in Toronto in September and while we were performing we decided let’s play ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ just for the hell of it and as the chorus line came up I just decided to sing ‘hey Ayatollah’ instead of ‘hey teacher’ and when I sang that line the crowd went insane,” Sepp told FoxNews.com.”
