    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 timeā€”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.
