ladies love draculas like children love stray dogs (ENBB), Wednesday, 10 August 2011 17:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

i heard a Rage song on the radio today, it took me 30 seconds to figure out if it was "Sleep Now In The Fire" or "Testify," as it always does. obviously they're not the most versatile band in the world but it still blows my mind how they were able to release two virtually identical singles back to back.

SINCE ABOUT FIFTEEN HUNDRED B.C.
they've attacked from underseas
Only leaving broken ruins of the Egyptian dream
Crossin' the border and puttin'
Harpoons in us
Bringin' harsh war from the top
of their aquatic acropolis
This is how they get what they need to gut
The fish-eaters' bad breath got offensive on Tut
The sun god's kingdom is what they claim,
The spirit of Akhenaton...alive but tamed
The sea people came, but the Egyptians were weaker
ON THE THRONE! CAIRO! EGYPT-A!
The mummy tried to save his name... but he had to flee
Yeahhhhh THIS IS FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE SEA!

They're comin' back around again!
This is for the People of the Sea!
They're comin' to your house again!
They're ravagin' the land again!
This is for the People of the Sea!
They're comin' to Los Angeles!
Unh....

oh, and i just remembered that the band would have been called Rage Against the Time Machine which is maybe the best band name I've ever been involved with making up, oh man

i am forever going to call him "zorro de la rocha" now. it's like when my mom called r. kelly "romulus kelly." he would always be romulus to me from then on out.

yeah for w/e reason during my youth we jammed the covers album waaay more than any of the others, although the s/t is the one i own

still maintain that 'tom joad' is getting way undersold here

saw a band dressed as Batman, Superman, Spiderman & Aquaman tear through "Killing In The Name" in the Latin Quarter this June, & it ruled, so I voted that

"Bulls" beating "Killing" is an unjustice so great i want to write a fiery rap rock anthem in protest

some dude, Monday, 15 August 2011 02:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

i do wonder if this is an age split too

bulls on parade was the first rage single i ever heard and i submit that i'm not the only one who was 6 when the debut came out

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Monday, 15 August 2011 03:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

I wasnt't 6 but yeah, Bulls was the first Rage i ever heard and it totally blew my 10th grade MTV mind.
