Urthboy explains why Australians need to consider changing the date of Australia Day

The move to change the date of Australia Day is gaining further momentum.

Australian rapper Urthboy was part of a collaboration of artists who wrote a song about getting the date changed.

It references burning the flag, indigenous deaths in custody and the Anzacs.

Urthboy told Neil Mitchell much of Australia simply ‘wasn’t listening’ to the reasons why some indigenous Australians found the date offensive.

He also pointed out that celebrating on January 26 was hardly a historic thing.

‘(Celebrating) January 26 is something that first really kicked off in 1994,’ he explained on 3AW Mornings

‘It’s not something that goes back centuries.’
