Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES will certainly piss off a hell of a lot of Rage Against the Machine faithful with her sweet cover of "Killing In The Name" that's recently surfaced, but we admittedly kinda enjoyed its serene sincerity. And it's pretty easy to enliven such an already angry bunch.
The line "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me" has never sounded so endearing, and perhaps the calm juxtaposition could have carried such a riotous message the extra mile. And hearing a Scottish lass cordially swearing shouldn't surprise anyone. The folky acoustic cover was recorded with Mayberry's previous band Blue Sky Archives.
