Bringer of war

Of course, musical similarities are nothing new.

I'm surprised, given how LOUD an orchestra is, that Holst's Mars, Bringer of War loses out in the decibel race here.

Rage Against the Machine's Wake Up is tremendous reworking of the old chestnut. When I first heard it, I did indeed sit bolt upright, awake for the first time in years. For some reason they don't allow embedding on blogs, though, so fuck them. If you want to leave this page to see a blank screen and hear Wake Up, you could click here.

Normally I'd upload the video to a non-YouTube site so you could watch it here, but ehhhhh...they're not actually obscure. They'll live without the clicks
