Portland Protestors Blast Rage Against the Machine Song

Protesters in Portland have apparently armed themselves with more than just Molotov cocktails and leaf blowers; they also brought along Rage Against the Machine to help them … well, rage against the machine.

Video taken during Saturday’s demonstration shows protesters cranking Rage’s “Killing in the Name” over loudspeakers, pumping their fists as they chant along with the line, “F*** you, I won’t do what you tell me” in a confrontation with federal agents. While he didn’t go as far as to comment on it, Rage frontman Tom Morello showed his support on Tuesday by sharing the clip on social media.

Written in the wake of the Rodney King beating, 1992’s “Killing in the Name” condemns racism and police brutality.

Can you name any other old politically-charged songs that are still relevant today?
