Living Colour's "Type"

Rock stalwarts Living Colour defied all preordained musical conventions in their heyday, performing a unique blend of rock that merged elements of so-called “black” music types with wildly disparate genres like hardcore punk, art-rock, and even avant-garde jazz into a seamless whole.

A stellar example of the archetypal Living Colour sound is "Type", a full metal jacket of a song that is filled with regimented, lock-step aggression, perfectly suited for its denunciatory lyrical message targeting social apathy, political hubris and crass consumerism. Check out its brilliantly executed and pertinently forceful promo here.
