Rage Against The Machine - Renegades Of Funk Lyrics




No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now

We're the renegades of this atomic age
This atomic age of renegades
Renegades of this atomic age
This atomic age of renegades

Since the Prehistoric ages and the days of ancient Greece
Right down through the Middle Ages
Planet earth kept going through changes
And then the Renaissance came and times continued to change
Nothing stayed the same but there were always renegades
Like Chief Sitting Bull, Tom Paine
Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X
They were renegades of their time and age
So many renegades

We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

From a different solar system many many galaxies away
We are the force of another creation
A new musical revelation
And we're on this musical mission to help the others listen
And groove from land to land singin' electronic chants like
Zulu nation
Revelations
Destroy our nations
Destroy our nations

Now renegades are the people with their own philosophies
They change the course of history
Everyday people like you and me
We're the renegades we're the people
With our own philosophies
We change the course of history
Everyday people like you and me
C'mon
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

Poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
Poppin', sockin', rockin', puttin' a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
Poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip-hop
'Cause we're poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip-hop
Poppin', sockin', rockin' puttin' a side of hip-hop

We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

We're teachers of the funk
And not of empty popping
We're blessed with the force and the sight of electronics
With the bass, and the treble the horns and our vocals
'Cause every time I pop into the beat we get fresh

There was a time when our music
Was something called the Bay Street beat
People would gather from all around
To get down to the big sound
You had to be a renegade in those days
To take a man to the dance floor

Say jam sucker (jam)
Say jam sucker (jam)
Say groove sucker (groove)
Say groove sucker (groove)
Say dance sucker (dance)
Say dance sucker (dance)
Now move sucker (move)
Now move sucker (move)
[x2]

We're the renegades of funk

  21. Klos1neMN

    Too bad that RATM doesn't release a decent quality video instead of having this diagonal version be the only copy. It's so epic it deserves to be in a museum.

  40. Wolf Leon asmr

    We need a RATM for the new generation of kids man!! I grew up in the early 2000s and they fucking inspired me! It woke me the fuck up man. They need this soo bad!

  41. Moth-owl Gemeaux

    What do the millionaire Marxist members of Rage Against the Machine do with their money?

    Julius Raben

    Remember the words: do as we say, not as we do!
    *but this song is a cover, not that its important for the marxist part

    But fuck it, damn good song.

    Zoscar Rhoads

    Social activism and live like every person on this planet should.

    Moth-owl Gemeaux

    @Zoscar Rhoads HA HA HA, i dont believe a word.

    Zoscar Rhoads

    @Moth-owl Gemeaux Zack went to Mexico with the zapatistas (EZLN) and there's a lo of videos of him or Tom Morello on youtube doing protests and movilizing.

    Schizopantheist

    Whatever the fuck they want. They earned it.

  42. Penzija Mirovinić

    thank god Kanye doesn't know about this song, he would insert himself here

    sakilook

  50. Aibar Atygaev

  51. Dr Dildo

    We could do with some more renegades these days.

    celtsfan13

    we do. the Don mr.trump

    Klos1neMN

    @celtsfan13 Shut the fuck up. He's the opposite of a renegade, he's using old pathways that were left alone for many years. Let's marginalize the poor, non-white, underclass and keep them down because we can. He's not a renegade, he's a rich kid who used hate as his fuel and got enough brainwashed people to stand beside him so even if he makes an incoherent speech about toilets and washing machines they'll still support him.

  52. Ring Neck

    Funk overload

  53. Gonzalo

    It went really good until 4:22...

  60. Yvette Marie G

    Renegades of Funk is one of the RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE'S most prolific songs. Showing different people's renegades. Love that they showed Sitting Bull n Leonard Peltier.

    Letra de la canción

    No importa cuánto te esfuerces, no puedes dejar ahora
    No importa cuánto te esfuerces, no puedes dejar ahora

    Desde la prehistoria y los días de la antigua Grecia
    Derecho a lo largo de la Edad Media
    El planeta tierra siguió funcionando en los cambios
    Y entonces no renacimiento vino, y los tiempos continuaron cambiando
    Nada se mantuvo igual, pero siempre hubo renegados
    Como jefe Sitting Bull, Tom Paine,
    El Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X
    Fueron renegados de su tiempo y la edad de
    Así que muchos renegados

    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk

    De las galaxias un sistema solar diferente muchas de distancia
    Somos la fuerza de otra creación de
    Una nueva revelación musical
    Y estamos en esta misión musical para ayudar a los demás escuchan
    Y el surco de tierra en tierra cantos electrónico Singin 'como el
    Nación zulú
    Revelaciones
    Destruir nuestras naciones
    Destruir nuestras naciones
    Destruir nuestras naciones
    Destruir nuestras naciones
    Destruir nuestras naciones
    Destruir nuestras naciones

    Ahora renegados son las personas con sus propias filosofías
    Ellos cambian el curso de la historia
    La gente común como usted y yo
    Nosotros somos los renegados que somos los
    Con nuestra propia filosofía
    Podemos cambiar el curso de la historia
    La gente común como usted y yo
    C'mon
    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk

    A Poppin ', sockin', rockin 'puttin' lado del hip-hop
    Debido a donde vamos "no hay ningún stoppin '
    Poppin ', sockin', Puttin 'un lado del hip-hop
    Debido a donde vamos "no hay ningún stoppin '
    A Poppin ', sockin', rockin 'puttin' lado del hip-hop
    Un Puttin 'Cause we're poppin', sockin ', rockin' lado 'de hip-hop
    A Poppin ', sockin', rockin 'puttin' lado del hip-hop

    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk
    Somos los renegados del funk

    Somos maestros del funk
    Y no de vacío estallar
    Estamos bendecidos con la fuerza y la visión de la electrónica
    Con el bajo, y los agudos de los cuernos y nuestras voces
    Porque cada vez que tengo el pop en el ritmo tenemos fresco

    Hubo un momento en que nuestra música
    Era algo que se llama la Calle Bay derrotó a
    La gente se reunía de todo
    Para llegar hasta el gran sonido
    Había que ser un renegado en aquellos días
    Para tener un hombre a la pista de baile

    Say lechón jam
    Say lechón jam
    Say groove sucker
    Say groove sucker
    Di lechón danza
    Di lechón danza
    Ahora mueva lechón
    Ahora mueva lechón

    Как бы вы ни старались, вы не можете остановить нас сейчас
    Мы ренегаты в это время и эпоха, это время и век ренегатов
    Поскольку пейсторический возраст
    И дни древней Греции
    Вплоть до средневековья
    Планета Земля продолжала вносить изменения
    И тогда пришел ренессанс
    И время продолжало меняться
    Ничто не осталось прежним
    Но всегда были ренегаты
    Как главный сидящий бык Том Пейн Д-р Мартин Лютер Кинг, Малкольм Х
    Они были отщепенцами
    Их времени и возраста
    Могущественные ренегаты
    Мы ренегаты фанка ...
    Из другой солнечной системы
    Множество галактик
    Мы сила другого творения
    Новое музыкальное откровение
    Источник teksty-pesenok.ru
    Мы работаем над этой музыкальной миссией
    Чтобы помочь другим слушать
    И идти от земли до земли
    Пение электронных песнопений, как
    Народность зулусов
    Откровения
    Уничтожьте все народы ...
    Теперь отступники - это люди
    Своими принципами
    Они меняют ход истории
    Каждый день такие люди, как ты и я
    Мы ренегаты фанка ...
    Мы поп, шокируем, раскачиваем в сторону хип-хоп
    Причина, по которой мы идем, не останавливается
    Поппинг, шокирующий, покачивание отложило в сторону хип-хоп
    Причина, по которой мы идем, не останавливается
    Мы поп, шокируем, качаем и откладываем хип-хоп
    Потому что мы поп, шокирующее качание отбросило хип-хоп
    Поппинг, шокирующий, покачивание отложило в сторону хип-хоп
    Мы ренегаты фанка ...
