MGK and Travis Barker's Cover Of Killing In The Name Resonates Hard With What's Going On In The World Today

Big MGK fan. Big Travis Barker fan. Big Rage Against the Machine fan. The song Killing In the Name was on Rage's self titled album that was released in 1992. That was 28 years ago, and the words in the song still sadly apply today. When I was a kid first discovering RATM, I had no idea what any of the words meant or the messages that they were trying to convey in their music. I just knew it sounded good, so I was a fan. Years later, those words come across more powerfully than ever, so shout out to MGK and Travis Barker for remaking a classic in their quest for equality, justice and accountability in the face of police brutality.
