What I love most about RATM is that they sound absolutely nothing like anyone or anything that has existed, before or since. De La Rocha's rapping and Morello's absurd effects, techniques, and whatever the hell he does are both so unique to the rock genre. The rhythm section can more than hold their own, but RATM is all about Morello and De La Rocha. At least in my eyes.

I never get tired of this song.

Well put

Its not like other "Rap-Rock" bands, Morello's DJ-Guitar effects put the band on a level of their own.

Honestly, there was a time when I listened to like 25-30 different songs by them a day. Most of them are dope as hell. Thats a great song too.

Edit: Actually, now that I think about it, that song is better than War Within A Breath.

One of my favorite RATM verses ever, if not my favorite

Quote:
The present curriculum
I put my fist in 'em
Eurocentric every last one of 'em
See right through the red, white and blue disguise
With lecture I puncture the structure of lies
-Take The Power Back

The song also has like a legit guitar solo in it, crazy breakdowns and shit, and that poem mid song is killer

Quote:
The teacher stands in front of the class
But the lesson plan he can't recall
The student's eyes don't perceive the lies
Bouncing off every ****ing wall
His composure is well kept
I guess he fears playing the fool
The complacent students sit and listen to some of that
Bullshit that he learned in school

And this killer verse until the chorus bridge breakdown

Quote:
Europe ain't my rope to swing on
Can't learn a thing from it
Yet we hang from it
Gotta get it, gotta get it together then
Like the mother****in' weathermen
To expose and close the doors on those who try
To strangle and mangle the truth
'Cause the circle of hatred continues unless we react
We gotta take the power back

RATM 4 lyfe yo

Come on!
Yes I know my enemies
They're the teachers who taught me to fight me
Compromise, conformity, assimilation, submission
Ignorance, hypocrisy, brutality, the elite
All of which are American dreams (8 times)
Much appreciated
