Cover of Rage Against the Machine

From Rage Against the Machine and 69 other releases

“Bullet in the Head” was a single released by American political band Rage Against the Machine from their eponymous debut album in 1992. A fan favourite and one of the album’s heaviest tracks, “Bullet in the Head” refers to the band’s belief that the government uses media to control the population, drawing comparisons between typical residences and Alcatraz. The track was transferred intact from the band’s demo, also titled Rage Against the Machine.

Along with one of the band’s most well known and embraced breakdown riffs, the song features many innovative guitar techniques executed by Tom Morello.
