Rage Against The Machine - "Guerilla Radio" - #WYLT?


What’s good, errybody? Welcome to another edition of What Y’all Listening To? Your chance to take a peek into our playlist and see what’s bumping. I was recently just flipping through Rage Against The Machine’s discography and realized I haven’t heard “Guerilla Radio” in a while. It’s a good’n. But it got me thinking, even before I listened to the song, The Battle of Los Angeles is brilliant, and not only are there so few rock bands that are this militant and political today, but there are few hip-hop artists/groups that are this militant and political, and intelligent. This is one band that I am dying to see reunite and make music again, it honestly hurts that it won’t happen. I love Rage Against The Machine. Zach de la Rocha is a poet.

“[Zach de la Rocha]
Transmission, third World War, third round
A decade of the weapon of sound above ground
No Shelter if you’re looking for shade
I lick shots at the brutal charade
As the polls close like a casket, on truth devoured
A silent play on the shadow of power
A spectacle monopolized
The cameras eyes on choice disguised
Was it cast for the mass who burn and toil
Or for the vultures who thirst for blood and oil?
Yes, a spectacle monopolized!
They hold the reins, stole your eyes!
All the Fist-a-gons, the bullets, and bombs
Who stuff the banks
Who staff the party ranks
More for Gore or the son of a drug lord
None of the above. Fuck it, cut the cord!

Lights out! Guerilla radio!
Turn that shit up!
Lights out! Guerilla radio!
Turn that shit up!
Lights out! Guerilla radio!
Turn that shit up!
Lights out! Guerilla radio!

[Verse 2]
Contact, I highjacked the frequencies
Blockin’ the beltway, move on DC!
Way past the days of bombin’ MCs’
Sound OFF, Mumia guan be free!
Who got ’em? Yo, check the federal file
All you pen devils know the trial was vile
An army of pigs try to silence my style
Off ’em all out that box, it’s my radio dial!


It has to start somewhere..
It has to start sometime…
What better place than here?..
What better time than now?…

[Repeat 6X]
All Hell can’t stop us now”

But that’s just me. What y’all listening to?
