Rage Against the Machine - Bombtrack - video clip

This is from the album "Rage Against the Machine" and song has duration 4:05.

Rage Against the Machine was a highly influential American rock band noted for their pioneering blend of hard rock, funk and rap as well as their vocal leftist beliefs. Rage drew inspiration from early metallic instrumentation, as well as rap acts such as Public Enemy and Afrika Bambaataa. The coalescence of Zack de la Rocha's rhyming styles and vocals along with their sound, especially Tom Morello's unusual guitar techniques, makes RATM difficult to confine to any one particular musical genre.

Rage Against the Machine were: Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk



Lyrics

Bombtrack

It's just another bombtrack
And suckas be thinkin that they can fade this
But I'm gonna drop it at a higher level
'Cause I'm inclined to stoop down
Hand out some beat downs
Cold runna train on punk ho's that
Think they run the game
But I learned to burn that bridge and delete
Those who compete at a level that's obsolete
Instead I warm my hands on the flames of the flag
As I recall our downfall
And the business that burned us all
See through the news and views that twist reality
Enough
I call the bluff
Manifest destiny
Landlords and power whores
On my people they took turns
Dispute the suits I ignite
And then watch 'em burn
The thoughts of a militant mind
Hardline, hardline after hardline
Landlords and power whores
On my people they took turns
Dispute the suits I ignite
And then watch 'em burn
Chorus:
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
Another flunky radical bombtrack
Started as a sketch in my notebook
But now dope hooks make punks take another look
My thoughts ya hear and ya begin to fear
That ya card will get pulled if ya interfere
With the thoughts of a militant mind
Hardline, hardline after hardline
Landlords and power whores
On my people they took turns
Dispute the suits I ignite
And then watch 'em burn
Chorus
