A Pair Of Canadian Morning Show DJ's Have Been Playing "Killing In The Name Of" By Rage Against The Machine Nonstop After Hijacking The Kiss FM Station That Fired Them

Vancouver Sun -Vancouver radio station KiSS Radio was giving listeners déjà vu on Wednesday by playing a Rage Against the Machine song on repeat.

The 104.9 FM station, owned by Rogers Sports and Media, started playing the rap-metal song Killing in the Name in the morning and hadn’t stopped by early afternoon.

When a listener called in with a request for a different song, a DJ ignored it and stuck with the single-song playlist.

This comes a day after popular morning hosts Kevin Lim and Sonia Sidhu announced their departure from the station after more than five years. Afternoon host Tara Jean Stevens also said she will be moving on to a new opportunity soon.

“KiSS is changing and, unfortunately, we were informed that we won’t be part of this new chapter,” said Lim and Sidhu in their final broadcast on Tuesday and on a message posted on social media.

They expressed gratitude to listeners and their management team at the station.

Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me
Motherfucker!
Ugh!

Just one of the best fuck you, protest against power songs of all time being played on an endless loop in sweet old little Canada. 

No doubt, the first thought that comes to mind is of Andy Dufresne kicking his feet up on the warden's desk, locked in his office and relaxing while the sweet sounds of “Le Nozze di Figaro,” (the Duettino “Sull'aria” to be specific) play over the prisons speaker system, while he awaits a beating from the warden and his henchmen.

The sad part is I know bullshit when I smell it and disappointingly, I don't think any of this is legit. 

For starters, these two are chicks. And not only are they chicks, but they are Canadian chicks.

It goes without saying that we all know Canadians are  ̶p̶u̶s̶s̶i̶e̶s̶ ̶ the nicest people in the world. 

So the chances of these two, level-headed, sweet lady DJ's barricading themselves in the studio and running Rage on loop all day long being real are slim to none. 

For starters, if they really wanted to send a middle finger message to the suits at Kiss, they'd be spinning the explicit version of the song. Not only for its vulgarity which really drives the message home. But also for the multiple FCC fines, the station would be racking up every time it plays. (Sidebar - does Canada have an FCC? They have to right? It's basically Eastern Germany up there now).

Also because, in classic Canadian fashion, this was done before, by Americans (from Milwaukee), so it's not even original.

True story. In 1992, a station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin played R.E.M.’s It’s the End of the World for an entire weekend as a precursor to switching the station to a hard rock format.

So it wasn't technically done in defiance. But it was done.

Then in the late 2010s, Q101 in Chicago got changed what seemed overnight, and the station's jocks played Red Hot Chili Pepper's "Can't Stop" on an endless repeat. 

So A for effort Canada DJs. I respect the game. But I see right through you. 

UPDATE - 

Ok, I take it back…

The new DJ's that took over are apparently pretty fucking funny. 

UPDATE -----

After 24 hours, it's somehow still going strong. Unreal. How does the station not have a kill switch or the ability to just pull the plug? What if some lunatics took over the control room and started reading Mein Kempf or something terrible over the airwaves? They could just do it? Clean it the fuck up Canada. Or shut it down.
