    would that song be considered appropriate to play.
    I mean, it has sensitive material, since the terrorists were killing in the name of god, but then again, that's what the song's against.
  2. I don't think theres any reason you shouldn't play it. I would say go for it, if you look hard enought you can realate almost any song to the terrorist attacks.

    Whoa crazy i was just listening to that song on the way home from school. I don't think it would be innapropriate. He doesn't literally mean killing someone. I think he was just talking about taking over the system. Which he talks about in almost every song. But Great Band!

    He said "song", not "tripe"! :D

    Bootsy has a nice bassline in that song, though...

    As for Killing The Name Of, unless the crowd complains, you're alright. It predates the events by like 8 years.
