The title track of Prophets of Rage's debut EP, this finds the band rejecting the current political status quo in the US. Guitarist Tom Morello explained the meaning behind the song to Billboard magazine:
"While B and Chuck are the lyricists of the song, my impression is it's not just specifically aimed at the Republican Party. The one positive signal of this rejection cycle is the rejection from right-winger, independent and left-wingers of business as usual. And it's understanding that the two-party system as it currently exists is just totally messed up and does not meet the needs of the people or the planet. And yes, there's a racist demagogue heading up one wing of it.
But in my opinion, a lot of the underlying frustrations of [Donald] Trump's supporters are not things we disagree with. They hate the fact jobs are being sent overseas 'cause that makes Wall Street more money, they hate the fact that politicians are controlled by a corporatist cabal - those are things we get behind as well. So this is music that I think, in some ways - while there is certainly an unapologetic political bent to it - there's no political litmus test to getting down with Prophets of Rage."
