Quote of the Day: Zach de la Rocha, Rage Against the Machine

December 17th, 2009 • Posted in Quote of the Day |

“One of the great things about young people is that they do question, that they do care deeply about justice, and they they have open minds.”

Check out more about Zach de la Roche and Rage Against the Machine here.

And folks, let’s have Killing in the Name as a Christmas #1, yeah?  Download the song now, and for the first time in years we’ll be hearing some music with balls after the Queen’s speech … a song about something real, written by people who care.

    Am I the only one that sees the irony in people telling us to buy a song that is an anthem for not doing what we’re told to do?

  2. Tim Lebbon says:

    Well … I’ve always seen the song as a shout against the system, and being told what to do by the system. Now people are being offered the opportunity to protest against the music establishment. It’s being suggested they buy the song, simply because to do so will make a statement.

    Plus, the song fucking rocks.

    I get a kick out of the enthusiasms of youngsters but my experience of most “young people” (in fact this very day!) is that the opposite of those three things is true. They don’t question. They don’t care. And – worst of all – they’re the most closed-minded, conservative bunch you could hope to meet. The world (and country) is going to shit and they’re on their i-pods listening to sounds about “shouting against the system”. Yeah sure.

    Gary, you’re not the only one. 🙂

    Personally, I’m raging for The Muppets for two reasons: 1) it’s Bohemian Rhapsody, and 2) Simon Cowell’s record company will not receive a penny. At the moment, Mr C is quids in since both RATM and Joe whatshisface are label-mates.

    The Muppets are owned by Disney, and insofar has I am aware, Queen is part of EMI which is not owned by a psycho-svengali. 😉

    C’mon, what’s not to like about Animal singing, “Mama”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgbNymZ7vqY
