Tom Morello successfully reached Rage Against the Machine-level dynamics on the latest single “Rabbit’s Revenge” off his forthcoming album The Atlas Underground, with the help of Bassnectar, Killer Mike, and Big Boi, that is. From the electrifying opening guitar lick to verses so ruthless they may as well be straight from Rage Against the Machine singer Zack de la Rocha’s mouth, this song is completely satisfying in my book. This could very well be an old Rage track left on the cutting room floor somewhere in the ’90s, except that Mike and Big Boi are rapping about Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin.
We’re insanely excited for The Atlas Underground, which is due out October 12th. Read more about the album’s wild featured artist list here.
