    I didnt really want to post this, given that the videos polarizing nature, but I figured its pretty powerful either view you may take.

    RTJ are fucking great, and that video's badass. The director posted a statement online to say the video's about the futility of violence. They aren't mocking anything or making any other statement.

    Good call. Thats what I assumed, being as it looked like the fight had been going on for a long time, and nobody was winning.

    Ultimately, thats why I decided to post it. The video's main theme is that things need to change...on both sides.

    They have a tendency to be politically charged, so I can see where De La Rocha would be into it.

    I like Rage Against the Machine and I like some hip hop, but that song is pretty terrible. Video is kinda cool though.

    Both their albums are dope. El-P is right behind Em for best white rapper of all time.

    I prefer El over Em. Never got into Eminem. My favorite song of Em's is the first one of his I heard, Any Man from the Soundbombing 2 album.
