Music Monday: Killing in the Name by Rage Against The Machine [Explicit]

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme created by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. It’s a real easy meme, you simply pick a song you like, and share it with everyone.

This week I chose Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine. A song about standing against police brutality and institutionalised racism. In 2009 after several years of the Christmas number one spot of the UK charts being taken up by the winner of X-Factor, an internet campaign grew encouraging those that were fed up of such a thing to buy this song and try to make it number 1. The campaign was successful and the song hit number 1, remaining there for just one week.

It’s a great song. Enjoy!

Killing in the name of
Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses x4
Huh!

Killing in the name of
Killing in the name of

And now you do what they told ya x11
But now you do what they told ya
Well now you do what they told ya

Those who died are justified, for wearing the badge, they’re the chosen whites
You justify those that died by wearing the badge, they’re the chosen whites
Those who died are justified, for wearing the badge, they’re the chosen whites
You justify those that died by wearing the badge, they’re the chosen whites

Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses x4
Uggh!

Killing in the name of
Killing in the name of

And now you do what they told ya x4
And now you do what they told ya, now you’re under control x7
And now you do what they told ya!

Those who died are justified, for wearing the badge, they’re the chosen whites
You justify those that died by wearing the badge, they’re the chosen whites
Those who died are justified, for wearing the badge, they’re the chosen whites
You justify those that died by wearing the badge, they’re the chosen whites
Come on!

Yeah! Come on!

Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me x16
Motherfucker!
Uggh!

  1. This song is one of my favorites!
    Ha, I used to head out with a Lithuanian girl to go see a band play covers before the disco nightclub section opened, and every time we saw them, we would ask them to play this song to finish off their set. Brilliant nights, because if you can’t have the real deal, covers are second best 😀 there we always were, in our normal metal getups in between super pretty, done up girls… oh well… But yes… love this tune to bits and every other RATM song!
