RATM fans: Your essential song(s)?

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Smokey, Mar 6, 2004.

  1. For all you RATM fans, I was wondering what is an essential song for you, if they released a greatest hits or something. Mine would have to be either "Killing in the Name" or "Bombtrack". Both great songs in my book. What song do you add to this "album"?
  2. i'd say bulls on parade, bullet in the head, their covers of i'm housin and maggies farm, and testify.

    come to think of it, the new live album is a pretty good "best of" kind of thing for them. but live. oh yeah.

    Oh... really?

    I thought only "Renegades" had covers on it. I guess I'm not sure about No Shelter.

    Funkee, "Down Rodeo", I believe.
