Angry times call for angry millionaire musicians who get very angry about…stuff. Rage’s politics have always been a bit “don’t look too hard at what we’re saying…” but nonetheless they have always ROCKED HARD. So let’s get right to the most raging of Rage’s tunes.
Hi-Topper Top 5 Rage Against the Machine Songs
Bombtrack kicks off RATM’s self titled debut and basically served a de facto mission statement –
With the thoughts from a militant, militant mind
Hardline, hardline after hardline
Landlords and power whores on my people, they took turns
Dispute the suits, I ignite, and then watch ’em burn
4. People of the Sun
People of the Sun is basically all riff but what one helluva riff it is.
3. Killing in the Name
This track slaps. Head bobbin’ chest thumpin’. Straight banger.
2. Down Rodeo
The most “alt rock” of Rage’s hits yet still funky.
1. Bullet in the Head
This is Rage Against the Machine. If you had to play one song to sum up Rage for someone who has never heard Rage this is the song.
That’s it. That’s the list. Facts is facts and the fact is Bulls on Parade does not make my Top 5 Rage songs.
Fuck you I won’t do what you tell me.
