In a interview with Total Guitar, the guitarist Tom Morello revealed which song he would like to me remembered for.
Read what he said:
“There’s quite a few, to be honest. But the one that continues to have the visceral impact everywhere from South Korea to Johannesburg is [RATM’s 1992 track] ‘Killing in the Name.’
“That song even went to the top of the pop charts in the UK over Christmas in 2010, long after its original release. I still hear it everywhere around the world now… and of course, I’m very happy about that.”
