Rage Against the Machine. Driving jagged guitar, great rhythm, and practically the best songwriting of the 90s. Here are some lyrics, and realize that they are seamless in the songs - they don't bog down the songs just because of their politically charged content, in fact they are incredibly energetic. I think it doesn't get better than rage for pump-up music. You get motivated and pumped but you actually get pissed off because they're so right about inequality, etc!
What we don't know keeps the contracts alive and movin'. They don't burn the books they just remove 'em.
Weapons not food, not homes, not shoes, not need, just feed the war cannibal animal, I walk the corner to the cemetery that used to be the library.
Stroll through the shanties and the cities remain. Same bodies buried hungry but with different last names. Pick a point on the globe, yes the picture?s the same.
A bank, a church, a myth, a hearse, a mall, a loan, a child dead at birth. A white hooded judge and a syringe and a vein. A field full of slaves some corn and some debt. There?s a ditch full of bodies, the check for the rent. A mass without roofs, a prison, a jail.
