COME ON!!
Ugh!

[Zach de la Rocha]
Come on..
Although ya try to discredit, ya still never edit
The needle I'll thread it, radically POETIC
Standin' with the fury that they had in '66
And like E-Double [Erick Sermon] I'm Mad,
Still knee deep in the system's SHIT!
Hoover, he was a BODY REMOVA
I'll give you a dose but it'll never come close to the
Rage built up INSIDE OF ME!
Fist in the air in the land of hypocracy
Movements come and movements go
Leaders speak movements cease
When their heads are flown
Cause all these punks got bullets in their heads
Departments of police, (WHAT?!) the judges (WHAT?!), the feds
Networks at work, keeping people calm
You know they went after King, when he spoke out on Vietnam
He turned the power to the have-nots..
And then came the SHOT!!

Yeah!
Yeah, back in this!

With poetry my mind I flex
Flip like Wilson, vocals never lackin' dat finesse
Who I got ta, who I got ta do to wake you up?
To shake you up, to break the structure up
Cause blood still flows in the gutter
I'm like taking photos, mad boy kicks open the shutter
Set the groove, then I stick and move like I was Cassius
Rep the Stutter Step
Then bomb a left upon the fascists
YEAH! Several federal men
Who pulled schemes on the dream and put it to an end
Ya betta beware of retribution with mind war
20/20 visions and murals with metaphors
Networks at work, keepin' people calm
Ya know they murdered X and tried
To blame it on Islam
He turned the power to the have-nots..
And then came the SHOT!!

UGH!
What was the price on his head?
What was the PRICE ON HIS HEEAAAAD?!

I think I heard a shot..
I think I heard a shot..
I think I heard a shot..
I THINK I HEARD A SHOT!
I THINK I HEARD A SHOT!
I think I heard, I think I heard a shot..

[Zack is reading a portion of a COINTELPRO
Of the Counterintelligence PROgram]

Black Nationalism... [...]
[He] may be a brave contender for this position
But should he abandon his supposed 'obediance' to the
'White literal doctrine' of non-violence
And embrace Black Nationalism...

[2x:]
Through Counterintelligence,
It should be possible to pinpoint potential
trouble-makers and neutralize them...

And neutralize them... [5x]

WAKE UPPPPPPPPPP!
WAKE UUUUUUUUUP!!
WAKE UUUUUUUUUP!!!
WAKE UPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!
WAKE UUUUUUUUUP!!!!!!
WAKE UPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!
WAKE UPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!
WAKE UUUUUUUUUP!!!!!!!!!
HOW LONG?! NOT LONG!
CAUSE WHAT YOU REAP IS WHAT YOU SOW!!!

Rage Against The Machine — дебютный студийный альбом рэп-металл группы Rage Against The Machine, выпущенный 11 ноября 1992 года. В 2001 году журнал Q назвал альбом Rage Against The Machine одним из 50 лучших тяжёлых альбомов всех времён. Диск включён в книгу 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die (1001 Альбом, которые ты должен услышать до того, как умрёшь). В 2003 году пластинка получила почётное 368 место в списке 500 величайших альбомов всех времён по версии журнала Rolling Stone.

На обложке альбома находится легендарное фото знаменитого Тхить Куанг Дыка, вьетнамского буддийского монаха, сжигающего себя в Сайгоне в 1963 году. Таким жестом монах выразил протест президенту Нго Динь Зьему, гнетущего буддийскую религию.
В 2011 году обложка альбома заняла пятое место в списке лучших обложек альбомов всех времен по мнению читателей интернет издания Music Radar.
