Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine

Killing in the Name Of.. fue el primer sencillo que Rage sacó de su album Eponymus , y es conocido por ser uno de sus más grandes éxitos en su carrera musical. (Que por desgracia, ya terminó años atras)

Para los que no conocen mucho de Rage Against The Machine, aqui les va un poco de historia (tomado de Wikipedia)

Rage Against the Machine (Rage o R.A.T.M.) es un grupo musical estadounidense de rapcore, constituido en el año 1990 por Tom Morello y Zack de la Rocha. Junto con Tim Commerford y Brad Wilk, el grupo tocó durante toda la década de los años 90 hasta su disolución en 2000.

Su estilo siempre se ha caracterizado por la rotundidad de sus letras y por su claro posicionamiento en contra del capitalismo y la globalización. De tendencias políticas de extrema izquierda, R.A.T.M. destacó, además, por sus múltiples iniciativas de protesta y solidaridad con distintos movimientos de reivindicación sociales y musicales. En los días posteriores a los atentados del 11 de septiembre, las emisoras de radio estadounidenses habrían censurado al grupo por alentar el antipatriotismo.

Musicalmente, Rage Against the Machine se caracteriza por mezclar el rock duro, apoyado en los solos de guitarra de Tom Morello, con la lírica rapera de Zack de la Rocha. Se aprecia también un pequeño toque de jazz por parte del bajista Tim Commerford, que perteneció a un grupo de ese estilo a mediados de los años 1980; finalmente, la batería de Brad Wilk está cargada de ritmos punk.



Asi que, los dejamos con Killing in the name of... (.."And now you do what they told ya!..")




Ver la letra ...


Killing in the name of!
Some of those that were forces are the same that bore crosses
Some of those that were forces are the same that bore crosses
Some of those that were forces are the same that bore crosses
Some of those that were forces are the same that bore crosses
Huh!

Killing in the name of!
Killing in the name of

And now you do what they told ya (11 times)
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, theyre the chosen whites
You justify those that died by wearing the badge, theyre the chosen whites
Those who died are justified, for wearing the badge, theyre the chosen whites
You justify those that died by wearing the badge, theyre the chosen whites

Some of those that were forces are the same that bore crosses
Some of those that were forces are the same that bore crosses
Some of those that were forces are the same that bore crosses
Some of those that were forces are the same that bore crosses
Uggh!

Killing in the name of!
Killing in the name of

And now you do what they told ya (4 times)
And now you do what they told ya, now youre under control ( 7 times)
And now you do what they told ya!

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

(guitar solo: yeah! come on!)

Fuck you, I wont do what you tell me (8 times spoken becoming a shout by the 8th time)
Fuck you, I wont do what you tell me! (8 times, shouted)
Motherfucker!
Uggh!
