Rage Against the Machine – Killing In The Name [Throwback]

The year was 1992. A wave of non-conformity was slowly making its way to the beaches of mainstream society. Leading the way was a gritty Los Angeles four piece, Rage Against the Machine.

After gaining a following overseas the rap-metal foursome came home, releasing what has become their crowning achievement. Led by distinguishing guitar riffs and Zack de la Rocha’s iconic counter-culture chant “Fuck you I won’t do what you tell me”, “Killing In The Name” would be the first of many exercises in dissension American audiences would come to love.

I have to admit I didn’t start to fully appreciate RATM until much later in life. At that time? I was content to just ride it out on the playground see-saws.
