Video: Rage Against the Machine's classic Killing in the Name Of gets covered by an orchestra
"Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses..."
JOE feels that there are certain songs that you can expect to hear in most indie bars on a Saturday night like The Strokes - Last Night, The Jackson 5 - I Want You Back or The Vengaboys - Boom, boom, boom, boom!
You can definitely add Rage Against The Machine's rousing, angry anthem Killing in the Name of to that list because it's one of our all time favourite songs.
Nick Proch is a composer based in Phoenix who has just started his most rock n'roll orchestra project of all time by covering a host of 90's rock songs.
The musician has started a kickstarter page to help fun his album named Tantamount which also covers "Black" by Pearl Jam, "Hysteria" by Muse and "Bulls on Parade" by RATM.
The album does have three conditions though; 1) It has to be a recognizable song from the past 30 to 40 years, 2) It can't have a load of orchestral arrangements already like Stairway to Heaven or Bohemian Rhapsody and 3) There's no U2 allowed.
Having heard this version, the classic intro from Tom Morello is oddly cinematic and you would think that it could easily feature in a horror film while the rest of the song is strangely uplifting.
We can't quite mosh to it though.
