I tried to keep the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in mind this week when I came up with my choice but I have to admit, none of my favorite songs really fit into his “change through peace” message. So instead I went in a bit more of a Malcolm X direction and chose this “power to the people” type song. If you would like to interpret it as an answer to the presidential address last week, feel free, although I like to keep J-Ball a no-politics-zone. But it’s a free country so don’t let me stop you.

Anyway, the last part of this song is undoubtedly a message we could all stand to yell now and then, whether it’s to The Man or just someone who irritates us. Go ahead, yell along with Zack de la Rocha!

Rage Against the Machine – Killing in the Name Of, not available on Napster but available on iTunes.
