On 4 June 2007 Tom Morello, lead guitarist with anti-war band Rage Against the Machine, headlined a benefit gig for Stop the War Coalition in London. On 20 December 2009, Rage Against the Machine made UK music chart history when a "people power" internet campaign succeeded in stopping the X Factor reality show record becoming an all too predictable Christmas number one. 500,000 downloads generated by online social networks got Rage Against the Machine's Killing in the Name to the top spot. The video below of Tom Morello at the Stop the War gig in 2007 was filmed by James O'Malley on his mobile phone.
No one knows who gave the orders
No one asks about the crime
No one looks behind the curtain
And no one questions why
The only time we got
Is right about now
I crossed my heart
I take the vow.

I'll never turn
I'll never bend
I'm with you now
Until the end

Tonight's the test
Tonight's the time
I am the punishment
That fits the crime
I'll break the bricks
I'll pick the locks
I don't got nothin'
But I'll give what I got

I'll never turn
I'll never bend
I'm with you now
Until the end

Ten trials whose outcomes
All fixed from the start
Nine judges sittin' countin'
Their money in the dark
Eight towers of iron
Surround the desert town
On a cold December morning
Seven martyrs knock them down
Four fathers still waiting
For their five sons to come home
Six mothers who know better
And accept that their gone
Four years I've been hunted
Still I breathe free
Three times I shot the sheriff
And did not spare the deputy

Two prayers I'm prayin'
Until we're together
One promise I'm keepin'
Tonight ain't forever.

I'll never turn
I'll never bend
I'm with you now
Until the end

I'll never turn
I'll never bend
I'm with you now
Until the end.
