“Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine (1992)

21 11 2008

Praise be to RATM.  Especially Tom Morello’s tasty guitar shredding (more recently he did the great guitar work on the “Iron Man” soundtrack).  And this mighty track’s shiv to the shoulders.  Awesome band, incredibly powerful music.

Sometimes people in authority abuse their power, and it’s up to us to set them right.  Because in my opinion, anyone who abuses the public trust is despicable.

We all have to live by some rules in order to get along.  But when you’re ordered to do something that just doesn’t seem right?  That seems like it’s wrong or harmful to someone, including yourself?  There just may be an appropriate response:

“F*ck you I won’t do what you tell me!”

Just be prepared for the consequences.

(This song is actually about something kind of specific.  Since we have relatives in law enforcement, you best talk to me first for what might be a long discussion)
