Remember That Time a Marching Band Rocked a Rage Against the Machine Cover?
It isn't always about touchdown celebrations for university marching bands. These moving orchestras often embrace their quirkier side and it never got better than that time the George Mason University marching band threw down their version of Rage Against the Machine's "Bulls on Parade."
In this bombastic effort, the band highlights how jarring and disruptive Rage's music is, which naturally imbued the electrifying sense of confrontation and angst the band's message was predicated upon. This band even used a vocalist and managed to maintain the same nervous energy of the original Evil Empire track.
Guitarist Tom Morello reflected on Rage Against the Machine's career as a guest on Lars Ulrich's Beats 1 radio show It's Electric and said it was "a miracle" the band managed to record four albums given the "extremely combustible elements" of the group's member.
Prophets of Rage, Morello's primary focus, are expected to follow up their 2017 eponymous debut in the near future. The band has already tracked 13 new songs for the record and previewed the release with a new single, "Heart Afire." Morello has remained especially busy and has a new solo record, The Atlas Underground, set for an Oct. 12 release. The album is packed with special guests including Skrillex, Marcus Mumford of Mumford and Sons, Bassnectar, GZA and RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan, Big Boi of Outkast, Killer Mike of Run the Jewels, Gary Clark Jr., X Ambassadors and Matt Shultz of Cage The Elephant.
