Rage Against the Machine - "Killing In The Name"
"Killing In The Name Of" was the lead single off Rage Against the Machine's self-titled debut album, and they wasted no time—Zach De La Rocha hisses uncomfortable truths over Tom Morello's growling guitar to great effect, but what RATM does so well on this cut is rile their listeners up to a breaking point.
When that chorus finally comes after a heart-pounding eternity of "Now you do what they told ya," your feet should be off the ground. Special shoutout to Morello's guitar solo at the four-minute mark. Short, sweet, and vicious.
