Rage Against the Machine – Killing in the Name

From 1992, rap and metal combine to express anger at, mostly, probably racism that remains in government institutions. Those that wear badges, such as police or maybe military leaders, are the “chosen whites,” but may also be, in effect, burning others on crosses. Still, maybe these people are taking orders from their own superiors, and shouldn’t just do what they are told – which makes the song question authority. And makes it controversial for suggesting protesters go past peaceful demonstrations to rioting?
