I love this song (learned the whole thing on guitar back in the day), but I always got confused on the lyrics.

"Ya justified those who died, for (wearin?) the badge and ya (jolted?) white"

I would definitely be funnier and more poignant if it was the Dead Kennedys' "Kill the Poor."

Who cares? If everyone sat about nitpicking over which song it should be nothing would get done.

And if this song gets the #1 spot then maybe they could have a guest appearance by Bruno Brookes to do the chart show*...





* For the benefit of Basilik and others - Bruno accidentally played the uncensored version of this RATM song on BBC Radio 1 when it was in the Top 40 when it first came out. Needless to say they got in shit for it.

how is it a silly song? Its a great fucking tune, its madly popular and its known by a shit load of people. What else would work? You need the youngsters in on this, yes it has a cool bit at the end where 14 year olds can rage against their parents, but you know.. rage are the best introduction into not being a massive bastard you can give to a young person, something to prick the ears up if you will

A. You are saying that a commercial former top 40 song is so vastly different from christmas schlock that this is a win?

B. Even if you can make an argument that it is more subversive than the other stuff that was making its way on the countdown, you can't tell me as a grown ass adult you don't see how other grown ass adults can find the song silly-even factoring in quaint nostalgia. Or can you?

C. One more example of why RATM forms the unholy quadrangle of bands with radiohead, tool, and mr. bungle.

There's no need to over-analyse this. Simon Cowell's pop proteges have taken the xmas no.1 the last 4 years running. To have him dethroned by by a song containing the words "fuck you I won't do what you tell me" will be entertaining. I mean, both songs are on Sony, it's not like it's an attempt to support independent artists. It's just a bit of a giggle. RATM are well-known enough that this could work, but the song is abrasive enough that it makes some kind of point. Everyone likes an armchair revolution. Make of it what you will.

You are tripping. Hard. If by unholy quadrangle, you mean "really popular bands that pretentious music snobs actually admit to liking" well... maybe. Pulling condescending "adult music" criteria though.... bullshit. If you don't get down to Rage, that's fine... maybe the nostalgia factor doesn't even get you... but get the stick outcha ass.
