If you grew up in the 90s with a penchant for rock music, then you’ll remember plodding through your formative years with a wide range of music to choose from. The likes of Eminem, MC Hammer and A Tribe Called Quest also made the 90s a pretty strong decade for rap music. But with bands such as Nirvana, Metallica and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the decade definitely belonged to rock. One of the biggest bands of the 90s, that admittedly haven’t quite aged as well as some of their peers, was the rap metal band Rage Against The Machine.
With Drop-D guitars, political overtones and some aggressive shout-rapping from lead singer Zach De La Rocha, you might remember Rage Against The Machine from the very last scene of the first Matrix film (the one with the flying Keanu Reeves), or more likely, from their most famous song Killing In The Name.
Released as a single in 1992, Killing In The Name even made an unlikely return to the public consciousness when it become the UK’s Christmas number one in 2009 as a protest against the X Factor’s domination of the recent Christmas charts.
The song is quintessential Rage Against The Machine. It has repetitive chants, chunky bass and a hook of “f*ck you, I won’t do what you tell me!” However, forget all that, because have you ever wondered what the song would sound like if it was played on toy instruments instead?
