A thousand musicians band plays RATM “Killing In The Name”

Rockin ‘1000, a band of 1,000 people, shared a video playing Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing in the Name” at Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt.


The group became known after recording a video with Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly”, aimed at catching the band’s attention and persuading them to perform in the small town of Cesena, Italy. In response, Dave Grohl and company gave a three-hour performance to the musicians.

Rockin ‘1000 was founded by six people and accepts registration on their website by any musician who wants to participate. “No rankings, no awards, no winners, no losers: everyone can be a part of it, whether it’s as an audience or a member of the ‘biggest rock band on earth’. No barriers here, all emotions are the same, the same intensity,” wrote the band on their website.

The song

“Killing in the Name” is a protest song by American rap metal band Rage Against the Machine, featured on their self-titled debut album, and was released as the lead single from the album in November 1992.

Written about revolution against institutional racism and police brutality, “Killing in the Name” is widely recognized as the band’s signature song, and has been noted for its distinctive guitar riffs and heavy use of profanity.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
