Darkness (Of Greed)

Album: The Crow Soundtrack (1995)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is mainly about AIDS in Africa and how the United States government is doing very little about it. While songs like "We Are The World" and "What's Going On" intend to spread awareness about social problems, Rage Against The Machine challenge the US government to do something about this problem. >>
