Go Rogue 2020: Inspiration to Unleash Your Inner Rebel

“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” ― Banksy

Before we unveiled the theme for this year, the Beach House team got together to research and explore some examples of “Going Rogue.” With all the soul-searching we did for our previous themes, we felt mentally and spiritually prepared to take on this new adventurous and refreshing approach to life.

We knew we wanted to do something out of the ordinary for 2020 – something that really pushed our boundaries, questioned the status quo and encouraged us to go beyond our comfort zone. We had a blast brainstorming ideas and exchanging our thoughts and inspirations on what compelled us to be brave, curious and take a stand.

Every month, we will be sharing with you some of the artwork, poems, music and books that inspired us to Go Rogue. Read on for more!

Never stop asking yourself – are you ready to exist on your own terms? Unleash your inner rebel. Live life according to your own light.

We loved listening to “Get Up, Stand Up” by Bob Marley and The Wailers – it has become one of our Go Rogue anthems! Did you know that when Bob Marley and Peter Tosh were writing this song, they were influenced by their life in Jamaica, where they had to fight for respect and acceptance for their Rastafarian religion. Also, according to Esther Anderson (Bob Marley’s girlfriend at the time), he wrote this song while being on tour in Haiti, where the level of poverty and unfortunate life conditions of Haitians left an indelible impression on him. Another interesting fact is that “Get Up, Stand Up, was the last ever song that Bob Marley performed before he died on the 23rd of September 1980 in Pittsburg.

We hope that this song helps inspire you to ignite your own personal rebellion!

“Get Up, Stand Up”

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
 
Preacher man don't tell me heaven is under the earth
I know you don't know what life is really worth
Is not all that glitters in gold and
Half the story has never been told

So now you see the light,
Stand up for your right. Come on

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight

Most people think great god will come from the sky
Take away ev'rything, and make ev'rybody feel high
But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth
And now you see the light
You stand up for your right, yeah!

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up. life is your right
So we can't give up the fight
Stand up for your right, lord, lord
Get up, stand up. keep on struggling on
Don't give up the fight

We're sick and tired of your ism and schism game
Die and go to heaven in Jesus' name, lord
We know when we understand
Almighty god is a living man
You can fool some people sometimes
But you can't fool all the people all the time
So now we see the light
We gonna stand up for our right

So you'd better get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight.
