Day 72: “Bullet in the Head” – Rage Against The Machine

!!!ITALIANO!!!

From the first album of RATM, 1992, today’s song is simply powerful and is one of the first major hits of the band. The group was born one year before based on the idea of a very hard sound being a good background for the polical lyrics, screamed out by the vocalist Zack De La Rocha in perfect and effective hip-hop style. The Californian band immediately gained a large success and influenced several other bands, especially with the raise of new metal in the second half of the 90’s. After the publication of the fourth album Renegades in 2000 the band breaks up and will come together again 7 years later with the same line-up.

And here is a live version of today’s song:

Lyrics
This time the bullet cold rocked ya
A yellow ribbon instead of a swastika
Nothin’ proper about ya propaganda
Fools follow the rules when the set commands ya
They said it was blue
When the boold was red
That’s is how you got a bullet blasted through your headBlasted through your head
Blasted through your headI give a shout out to the living dead
Who stood and watched at the feds cold centralized
So serene on the screen
You was mesmerized
Cellular phones soundin’ a death tone
Corporations cold
Turn ya to stone before you realizeThey load the clip in omnicolor
They pack the 9, they fire it at prime time
Sleeping gas, every home was like Alcatraz
And mutha fuckas lost their mindsJust victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say how highThey load the clip in omnicolor
They pack the 9, they fire it at prime time
Sleeping gas, every home was like Alcatraz
And mutha fuckas lost their mindsNo escape from the mass mind rape
Play it again jack and then rewind the tape
Play it again and again and again
Until ya mind is locked in
Believin’ all the lies that they are tellin’ ya
Buying all the products that they are selling ya
They say jump
Ya say how high
Ya brain dead
Ya gotta fuckin’ bullet in your headJust victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say how highYa standin’ in line
Believin’ the lies
Ya bowin’ down to the flag
Ya got a fuckin’ bullet in ya head
