Although police shut down New York's Occupy Wall Street encampment last fall, related protests continue to crop up around the world. And while the mainstream media may have lost interest in the movement and its issues — actually the mainstream media was never much interested in the actual issues — Occupy's half-life has proven considerably longer than first predicted.

Now, a five-disc Occupy benefit album is bringing together 99 tracks by 99 artists on behalf of the 99 percent. Among them are Amanda Palmer, Ladytron, Patti Smith, Willie Nelson, Ani DiFranco, UNKLE, James McMurtry (with Joan Baez and Steve Earle), Deborah Harry, Thievery Corporation, Toots & the Maytals, Tom Morello, the Mammals (featuring Pete Seeger), the Pimps of Joytime (featuring Roy Ayers), New Party Systems (featuring Kip Malone), Jackson Browne, Yo La Tengo, Dar Williams, Mogwai and Immortal Technique.

While Occupy This Album won't come out until May 15, you can preview five tracks from its five discs below. For more info, head on over to musicforoccupy.org.
