Vancouver radio station repeatedly plays Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name” without explaining why

KISS FM did something strange today.

He played the same song over and over – hundreds of times – and refused to give any explanation.

It was “Killing in the Name” from Rage Against the Machine. And no one knows for sure if it was a corporate stunt prior to a format change or an outcry from disgruntled employees.

The lyrics have lines like “Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me,” but there’s a cleaner version out on the air.

You can read the full lyrics below.

Kill in the name of

Some of those who work forces are the same ones who burn crosses

ugh!
Kill in the name of

Now you do what they told you
And now you do what they told you
But now you do what they told you

Those who died are justified, for wearing the insignia, they are the chosen whites
You justify those who died by wearing the badge, they are the chosen whites
Those who died are justified, for wearing the insignia, they are the chosen whites
You justify those who died by wearing the badge, they are the chosen whites

Some of those who hold office are the same who burn crosses
Some of those in Congress are the same ones who burn crosses

ugh!
Kill in the name of

Now you do what they told you
And now you do what they told you
(Now you’re under control)
And now you do what they told you
(Now you’re under control)
And now you do what they told you
(Now you’re under control)
And now you do what they told you
(Now you’re under control)
And now you do what they told you (now you’re under control)

Those who died are justified, for wearing the insignia, they are the chosen whites
You justify those who died by wearing the badge, they are the chosen whites
Those who died are justified, for wearing the insignia, they are the chosen whites
You justify those who died by wearing the badge, they are the chosen whites
Come on!

Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me
motherfucker, yeah
