I’m sure you’ve all heard at least one Rage Against the Machine song. They’re one of the biggest alternative rock bands of all time and definitely one of the biggest bands of the 90’s. And don’t everyone get excited, I’m not trying to dethrone Nirvana or anything. I’m just hyping things up for today’s song post.
Anyway, a few years ago I came across an MP3 from one of Rage Against the Machine’s live shows where they did a cover of N.W.A’s classic “Fuck Tha Police.” RATM’s version is done in their typical aggressive, confrontational style with Tom Morello’s buzzing guitars backing up Zack De La Rocha’s furious screams. It’s just interesting to hear RATM do tribute to their hip-hop roots. Oh yeah, and the recording actually comes from an import called Live & Rare.
I have nothing against police. Unless I get fined. Then it’s personal.
