Movie Producers: "Hey, get those Rage Machine guys to do a song for this soundtrack. They're hot right now and Godzilla is going to need hard rock!"

RATM: (ring ring) "Hello?"

Movie Producers: "Can you guys put together a song for the Godzilla movie soundtrack? It's gonna be a BLOCKBUSTER!"

RATM: [Writes song about how Hollywood and consumer culture keep people stupid and distracted and are bullshit, talks about movies whitewashing history, expressly calls the movie "Godzilla" itself "pure muthafuckin' filler." Sends in tape to the executives.]

Producers: "Super!"

I imagine someone listened to the first 20-30 seconds to make sure it was catchy, then they sent it to legal to make sure they could sneak it in to the soundtrack without having to put a parental advisory sticker on it. They probably didn't figure out what the song was about, if ever, until the single came out.

Not sure how I missed this thread. Love it.

While the following albums aren't a collection of "protest" songs per se, they accurately depict much of what I feel about Trump's America:

I love this song, and Rhiannon Giddens (I like to imagine her as Raylan Giddens and Rachels Brooks' kid...)

My RATM playlist hasn't been getting enough play since dotard got his ass fired.  I have to say one of the only positives from the reign of terror was I got in some seriously good workouts after getting pissed off to high heaven by dotard then firing up RATM.
