Docs that Rock usually perform together just once a year, at the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians annual conference. With that event cancelled this year, the band members, who are all emergency room doctors and play music as a hobby, decided they still wanted to rock out—and offer support and encouragement to their fellow physicians and to all Canadians. With a little help from a colleague’s video and music production skills, they recorded a video cover of Tom Petty’s classic song “I Won’t Back Down.”

The video follows Dr. Matt Chellew as he gets ready for another day of work in the emergency department of Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga, getting some assistance from the other Docs that Rock to suit up for the fight against COVID-19. You can watch the full video below.
