Rage Against The Machine - Guerrilla Radio


"Guerrilla Radio" is a song by American rock band Rage Against the Machine and the lead single from their 1999 album The Battle of Los Angeles. It became the band's only Billboard Hot 100 song, charting at #69. The band won the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for this song.


This song is a statement about the worthlessness of democracy in the United States. Since the people don't truly understand "choice" and are only able to grasp a small glimpse of those running to represent them in office, they are unconsciously under a one-party system. Rage are using music and sound as a weapon against such "low intensity warfare."


Lyrics


Transmission, third world war, third round A decade of the weapon of sound above ground No shelter if you're lookin' for shade I lick shots at the brutal charade As the polls close like a casket On truth devoured A silent play in the shadow of power A spectacle monopolized The camera's eyes On choice disguised Was it cast for the mass who burn and toil? Or for the vultures who thirst for blood and oil? Yes, a spectacle monopolized They hold the reins and stole your eyes Or the fist-a-gons The bullets and bombs Who stuff the banks Who staff the party ranks More for Gore or the son of a drug lord None of the above. Fuck it! Cut the cord Lights out Guerrilla radio Turn that shit up Lights out Guerrilla radio Turn that shit up Lights out Guerrilla radio Turn that shit up Lights out Guerrilla radio Contact. I hijacked the frequencies Blockin' the beltway, move on D.C Way past the days of bombin' MCs Sound off. Mumia guan be free Who got 'em? Yo check the federal file All you pen devils know the trial was vile An army of pigs try to silence my style Off 'em all out that box. It's my radio dial Lights out Guerrilla radio Turn that shit up Lights out Guerrilla radio Turn that shit up Lights out Guerrilla radio Turn that shit up Lights out Guerrilla radio Turn that shit up It has to start somewhere It has to start sometime What better place than here What better time than now? All hell can't stop us now All hell can't stop us now All hell can't stop us now All hell can't stop us now All hell can't stop us now All hell can't stop us now
