Is this a new incarnation of Hero43, or a different song altogether?

I was wondering the exact same thing just last night.

Same here. From what I recall Hero43 was a reference to former president Bush. The one line I could make out from the Kings trailer (we need a hero / to save us from ourselves) doesn't seem to allude to that. Then again, it's one line.

exactly what I thought when I first read the song name. I checked it, to make sure they had different names.

I mentioned this in another thread, but the one line in the trailer I could make out in the background (besides the chorus) was:

 "Freedom never thought it would end this way."

So I'm guessing it is along the same lines as the former song "Hero 43," which (as I recall) Dan explicitly stated is aimed at the presidency in general, and makes allusions to the Bush administration's actions.

Hero is an entirely different song, with an entirely different message. Hero 43 may see the light of day, as we are discussing some ways to get the unreleased stuff from our past records out to fans.

Thanks for listening. -D

I for one am glad Hero43 wasn't released with Good Monsters.  Firstly, I appreciate Jars of Clay likes to properly refine songs before releasing them unlike many other bands out there.  Secondly, unsubtle political messages turn me off to a song regardless of whether or not I agree with the message. (In fact, I partially agree with Dan's statement concerning the song).  I feel such a move cheapens a song's artistic potential because the artist specifically decided to waste recording time with an outright political protest; thus, I believe Hero43 would have detracted from Jars' universal, ponderous, introspective lyrical nature--a quality particularly present in Good Monsters.  (Though I don't necessarily like the band Linkin Park, their song Hands Held High on Minutes to Midnight is a perfect illustration of what I'm referring to.)   Please don't misconstrue me; I believe that a band shouldn't be afraid to express their opinion.  Such opinions should merely be limited to the realm of other media--not albums.  Thankfully, Dan did this.

This is the first time I have ever heard of "Hero 43" when did this come up? Just when you thought you knew it all

It was never actually released. People dont know lyrics either, well I think they dont.
