I agree entirely Kurticus. We are all nieve to have the oversight to forget that.
I think that cover, along with Rage’s second, really spoke of how the music was formulated in terms of the message. The first, much as you said, was about dying for a cause, the second, was more about how the media had made rebellion, indeed the act of raging against the machine, something "cool" for kids. Less meaning, sort of. Just my two cents.
