Darth Vader Shreds the Intro Bass Licks of the Rage Against the Machine Song ‘Killing In the Name’

While walking through the streets of Melbourne, Steve Powell captured the unlikely but not unexpected sight of Darth Vader shredding the intro bass licks of “Killing In the Name” by Rage Against the Machine.

Only in Melbourne

This local dark lord is actually Darth Busker, a really talented bass player, who is trying to raise money for a new Death Star. And like others we’ve written about who busk as Star Wars characters, he has definitely made an impression on locals and visitors alike.

Thanks David Klass!
