“Revolver” by RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE gets a new funk punk version from EASTER TEETH

1 min read

“Evil Empire” by RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE documented the four-year period since the release of the band’s legendary self-titled debut, and brutally marked their long-awaited return to the world of political activism through music. It was one of those records that was on repeat for the longest time and it’s always a great pleasur to give it another nod. Today, we have teamed up with California’s EASTER TEETH to give you another new jam from their upcoming covers album “Covers“, their unique funk punk version of “Revolver”!

Besides just being a bad-ass song, if I remember correctly, we learned a Rage Against the Machine song before we went on tour because one of our buddies who was putting on our show in Albuquerque, Adam Smith of the band Crushed!?, was a big RATM fan. We just wanted to make his day. One of the challenges in arranging our version of Revolver was what to do to replace Tom Morello’s lead guitar work. Then it hit us. What could be better than a good ol’ PE coach’s whistle? Totally nailed it.
