You bitch and complain about the American government and it's 'corruption'. Not everything in the fucking world is a conspiracy. Honestly, I don't see the country going down the wrong path, I see the people going down the wrong path. The government isn't out to get you. Maybe if you quit doping and finally moved out of your parents basement, you'd realize that. And F.Y.I, Anarchy is bull shit.

Modern day KKK | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/18/11

This song is about the workings of the American government who kill or destroy people within society. If you don't do what they say they will make your life a hell.

Just look at wikileaks Julian Assange. Constantly being attacked by many governments because he wants justice around the globe.

Music is art | Reviewer: JOse | 8/24/11

Art leaves the interpretation up to the individual. The song means what it means to whoever hears it. Who gets to be the music police to tell you what meaning you are supposed to take away from the music?

It is what you want it to be.

WOW | Reviewer: KILLA | 7/9/11

Amazing and just so you know Tom is the co-founder of the non-profit political activist organization, Axis of Justice, which airs monthly on KPFK 90.7FM in Los Angeles. And is half Caste.
Tom Morello was born on May 30, 1964, in Harlem, New York, to Ngethe Njoroge and Mary Morello. He is of Irish and Italian descent on his maternal side, and Kikuyu Kenyan descent on his paternal side.His father was a Kenyan participant in the Mau Mau Uprising, and served as Kenya's first ambassador to the United Nations.[3] Morello's paternal uncle, Jomo Kenyatta, was the first elected president in Kenyan history.

"fuck u u asswipes who think ther real pure blood mutherfukin rockers cauz they heard it on gta sa"

"First time I heard RATM was in GH III..."

I realize you are all probably youguns, but these statements kill me. Rage was SO huge and popular when I was in high school I actually hated them. Several years later I can't deny, these guys rocked the soundtrack of my youth. Tom Morello is/was a guitar hero, the music straight rocks. Zach de la Roca can go fuck himself tho, what a douche.

der der | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/14/10

It's about the KKK that work amongst the police officers of america,
'Some of those that work forces
Are the same that burn crosses'

They're saying that most white police officers then we're chosen to be members of the Ku Klux Klan.

They're not backing them, wich is obvious in the last verse haha...

RATM know alot more than they appear to, they're well well well informed, every single one of their songs might seem like a bunch of stuff thrown together, but it's all got historical subject in it.

Racist what the fuck???? This is clearly referring to some if the people in power... Who are meant not to be racist are fucking racists!!!! Jesus Christ this song is about outing the mother fuckers that play the holier than thou I'm a fucking angel card.... But when your not looking they are ass fucking you.... If you can't see that, then you should listen to mre rage against the machine and learn a little bit more about what's going on around you.... These guys have balls bigger than church bells!!!!

sweet! | Reviewer: Daniel | 7/15/10

I love this song! First time I heard RATM was in GH III with their song 'Bulls On Parade', boy that was an awsome song, and this one is even better! I like the drum solo on this one, try to make it through this song in GH SH on hard, I haven't...

FUCKIN AMAZING!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/4/10

You Suck | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/29/10

Oi cunt, Tom Morello is NOT black, he is white, search it on Google images.Also why would they make him white on Guitar Hero 3? Now that would be racist. And everyone should listen to what "Anonymous" (the one that says Morello is black) says other than the fact that Tom Morello is not black. Rage are not racist, they are strongly against it.

Kick ass song! That's all you need to say. Stop ranting about some kind of concealed bigotry or anti-patriotism hidden in the song. The song is obviously anti-american as it is anti-authority. Be prudent about your intepretation and efface the idea of incognituous structure

wow | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/7/10

you lot really are morons, why would a socialist band back the KKK? there against it, this song is about racism in the power areas like the government and the police, thats why at live shows durin 08 election campaign, they used to say "some of those that run office, are the same that burn crosses" in reference to george bush, there very anti- racial, surley you can work that out when brad wilks parents are jewish-polish, de la rocha is mexican, an tom morello is black.....think before you speak, idiots.

ratm kicks ass | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/13/10

for all you idiots who are saying they support the kkk and shit like that... wow. bullshit. maybe that is what its about, but seriously, ratm's purpose is to educate us about the history we dont get through the history books, the part that we all choose to ignore. and if you are concerned about the government, well, they need a little criticizing now and again. not that they dont do anything right, but they make too many mistakes. they need a little punishment, and if ratm are the only ones with the courage to stand up to them, then fricking let them.

and to those of you talking about linkin park... wow get out more, listen to real music. seriously.
