Jordan Olds, host of Two Minutes to Late Night, dropped an explosive new cover. But unlike his previous collaborations, Olds took a step down from this one and handed the space over to musicians of color, who covered Rage Against the Machine’s 1992 protest song “Killing in the Name.”
“Frick you, I won’t do what you tell me! We made a thrash metal cover of Rage Against the Machine and based on the subject matter of the song we wanted to feature only non-white performers. Defund the police,” said a caption on the video.
The cover included: Aaron Heard, member of Nothing and leader of Jesus Piece; electro-rap artist Miss Eaves; Creeping Death guitarist Trey Pemberton; Fever333 guitarist Stephen Harrison; Fucked And Bound bassist Rah Davis; Spotlights drummer Chris Enriquez; and guitarist Izzy Bolivar who played with Glassjaw and Seal.

Also, If I “Lost you with this one” I will not grant a single fuck and I SHANT be fucking with you any longer!!!! Honorableswords.com #blm #defundthepolice
While they stay pretty true to the cover, Heard brings his own flair to the lead vocals, and Miss Eaves adds her own must-hear verse.
