‘Killing in the Name’ has brought back again, just in time for Christmas, by Australian party animals, Furnace and the Fundamentals!
As proven in previous years, Rage Against the Machine can be a Christmas anthem if we really want it to be. Following on from ‘Killing In The Name‘s landslide defeat of X-Factor winner Joe McElderry’s cover of ‘The Climb’ from several years ago, this anti-establishment protest song is back, and being covered by the fun-filled Australian comedy band, Furnace and the Fundamentals.
Putting their money where their mouth is, the band have changed the lyrics to fit the charitable spirit of Christmas - singing “giving in the name of” and putting it to home videos of children unwrapping presents all over the world. The song is injected with a classic Christmas spirit, with sleigh bells and “ho ho ho” backing vocals, as well as Furnace’s signature brass section providing the accompaniment for this jolly track.
It’s the first in a line of releases preceding the album A Very Furnace Christmas - with the fun-filled Australian band also turning their talents to a reworking of the song ‘YMCA’ in advance of what is sure to be the perfect holiday album, released everywhere on 13th December.
Watch the video for ‘Giving In The Name Of’ below and keep your eyes peeled for a tour date announcement for 2020, coming soon!
