NEW YORK (CBS/AP) A Canadian band has come up with some new words for a Pink Floyd classic to reflect dissent young Iranians have for their government.

Blurred Vision, a Toronto-based rock band fronted by two Iranian brothers, have permission from Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters to use "Another Brick in the Wall" with new lyrics.

The song, featured in a video seen by more than 160,000 viewers on YouTube, replaces the teacher reference with "Hey, Ayatollah, leave those kids alone!''

In a "Footloose"-like gesture, the Blurred Vision version of the song expresses discord between young people and the government of Iran, where it's illegal to play rock music.
