Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello and Foo Fighters keyboardist Rami Jaffee contribute to a charity cover of the Eurythmics hit “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”

The track was recorded in collaboration with The Miraculous Love Kids/Girl with a Guitar, a project that aims to bring and teach music to girls in war-torn Afghanistan. 

“These girls are so brave and so inspiring,” Morello says in a statement. “It is an honor to make music with them.”

Other artists who play on the cover include The Go-Go’s bassist Kathy Valentine, The Bangles guitarist Vicki Peterson, Cherie Currie of The Runaways, MC5‘s Wayne Kramer, The Bird & the Bee, and Umphrey’s McGee drummer Kris Myers.

You can watch the “Sweet Dreams” cover streaming now on YouTube.

The Miraculous Love Kids/Girl with a Guitar previously collaborated with Brian Wilson on a rendition of his solo song “Love and Mercy.” For more info on the project and to make on donation, visit MiraculousLoveKids.org.
