Prophets of Rage continue to keep their finger on the pulse of American society, making their latest musical statement with the new song and video for "Pop Goes the Weapon." The track offers a pretty frank statement on America's gun culture and the recent flurry of mass shootings.

Prior to the new video release, Prophets of Rage teased of bit of what was to come on social media, explaining, "Warning! The following video contains content that some viewers MAY NOT find disturbing. That's pretty fucked up." They weren't wrong, as the clip for the song features weaponry production line footage, newspaper headlines and a running scroll of the mass shooting incidents in the U.S. that includes the cities and number of people killed in each attack.

For a closer look at the lyrical statement on the matter, the lyrics are listed below.

Who’s that knockin’ on my door
What ya tryin’ to bother me for
Don’t want none of what you’re sellin’
I know you’re rotten to the core
So my 44 mags about to put one in your melon

Last night one of my neighbors got held up for the paper
But the popos never came
They won’t do you any favors
Say prayers
So many layers
Some things will never change

HA HA HA
This afternoon got caught up
At a red light, in the line of sight
Of these mother fuckers from the other night
Seems like the right time pullin’ out his life line
Any time you threaten mine
Gonne be a fight

See I’m numb just lookin’
For a reason for my finger
To be squeezing on the trigger
Through another killin’ season

One gun two gun three guns four
So many guns keep on runnin' out the store

Pop goes the weapon
You better keep on steppin’
Pop pop goes the weapon
Pop pop
HA HA HA HA

Pop pop goes the weapon
You better keep on steppin’
Pop pop goes the weapon
Pop pop
HA HA HA

Who’s that knockin’ on my door
Who’s that knockin’ on my door
Who’s that knockin’ on my door
Who’s that knockin’ on my door
HA HA HA

Feelin’ my soul leave my body
La dee da dee
Somebody got me
I don’t even know his name
Started fightin’ at a party
No karate
Hammers droppin’,
But the popos never came

Lightheaded and I’m dizzy
My vision fuzzy
I get the feelin’ it’s the end of the game
I’m on the television talk of me
Ask who was he, ‘cause they don’t love me
That’s when the fuckin’ popos came

Pop goes the weapon
You better keep on steppin’
Pop pop goes the weapon
Pop pop
HA HA HA HA

Pop, Pop goes the weapon
You better keep on steppin’
Pop pop goes the weapon
Pop pop
HA HA HA

Yeah
Pop goes the weapon
You better keep on steppin’
Pop pop goes the weapon
Pop pop goes the weapon

Pop goes the weapon
You better keep on steppin’
Pop pop goes the weapon
Pop pop
HA HA HA

Who’s that knockin’ on my door
Who’s that knockin’ on my door
Who’s that knockin’ on my door
Who’s that knockin’ on my door

"'Pop Goes The Weapon' reflects the ongoing gun violence happening in America," stated B Real. "Guns are both the subject of religious worship AND huge profits in the United States," added Tom Morello. "Combined with emboldened white nationalism the recent epidemic of massacres is little surprise. 'Pop Goes The Weapon' channels our 'thoughts & prayers' through Marshall stacks & microphones."

"Pop Goes the Weapon" is now available for streaming and via digital service providers. Find out how to get it via the platform of your choosing here.
