High School Band Performs Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name”

killinginthename

The coolest high school band teacher award goes to this guy, for teaching his class Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name”.

*EDIT Chris over at Colossal found a second video which shows the band is actually George Mason University Green Machine. I’ve also replaced the original video with another one which properly credits them. I guess this makes slightly more sense since high school parents would not be very stoked on the last verse of the song – still cool though.

Watch both videos below.

        I had teachers like this but in dramatic arts and literature. Kick ass teachers. I am a writer and a florist now. Would never have gotten here without those teachers.
        What an amazing group of kids and teacher!

  • Glad to see that these kids are being raised on good music.

    The conductor doesn’t exactly get overly concerned with conducting.
