As a follow-on to The Corporation post, take a listen to this (year's) song. If you haven't heard RATM before, this is pretty representative of their subject matter and style. If you have heard them, this is a song you won't find on any of the albums.

Fix the need, develop the taste
Buy their products or get laid to waste

Lyrics

The main attraction - distraction
Got you number than number than numb
Empty ya pockets son; they got you thinking that
What you need is what they sellin'
Make you think that buyin is rebellin'
From the theaters to malls on every shore
The thin line between entertainment and war
The frontline is everywhere, there be no shelter here
Speilberg the nightmare works so push it far
Amistad was a whip, the truth was feathered and tarred
Memory erased and burned and scarred
Trade in your history for a VCR

Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
Fourth Reich culture - Americana
Chained to the dream they got you searching for
The thin line between entertainment and war

There be no shelter here
The frontline is everywhere

Hospitals not profit full
The market bulls got pockets full
To advertise some hip disguise
View the world from American eyes
The poor adore, keep fiendin' for more
The thin line between entertainment and war
Fix the need, develop the taste
Buy their products or get laid to waste
Coca-Cola was back in the veins of Saigon
And Rambo too, he got a dope pair of Nikes on
Godzilla - pure muthafuckin filler
Get ya eyes off the real killer

Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
Fourth Reich culture - Americana
Chained to the dream they got you searching for
Tha thin line between entertainment and war

There be no shelter here
The frontline is everywhere

American eyes, American eyes....
View the world from American eyes
Bury the past, rob us blind
And leave nothing behind

Just stare
Relive the nightmare.

Ha, I was wondering what RATM stood for. After reading the lyrics, it was clear that it was Rage Against the Machine. Didn't know you were a fan, J.

This song is truly showing the dark side of capitalism and how it affects the poor ones because of the greediness of the burgeoisie
