Sobre Killing In The Name

  • Este tema ha acumulado desde sus inicios en 1992 un sinfín de críticas, censura y controversia. La temática del tema habla sobre la represión y violencia ejercida por la policia de los Estados Unidos a la gente de color. Haciendo referencias a que los miembros de la policía pertenecen al Ku Klux Klan en la estrofa “Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses”. O el célebre “fuck you I wont do what you told me”.

    En 2009 se vio envuelta en una campaña viral por redes sociales. En ella se instaba a descargarla masivamente como desafio a la industria musical de Simon Cowell y evitar que el ganador de X-Factor lograra el número uno pop por quinto año consecutivo. El objetivo de la campaña tuvo éxito y la canción se convirtió en el número uno de la navidad de ese año. Tom Morello, el guitarrista de Rage Against the Machine, declaro que la campaña le pareció una “maravillosa dosis de anarquia” con la que la gente tenía la posibilidad de votar y enfrentarse a programas como X-Factor.
