Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker teamed up to cover Rage Against the Machine's "Killing In The Name," in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

On Thursday (June 6), they took to social media to share the song and post a black-and-white video that features shots of the protests in LA neighborhoods. The visual, which runs for nearly four minutes, ends with the words "end systemic racism" written in white font against the screen's black background.

In the clip, there is a visual of Gun Kelly and Barker holding their respective "Stop arresting protesters! Arrest killer cops!!" and "No justice. No Peace" signs.

Kelly is also seen showing off the back of his white T-shirt, which reads "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, f--- 12" in reference to the police.

"They wrote the song in 1992. it's been 28 years since, and every word still applies," Kelly wrote on his Instagram, alongside the "Killing in the Name" cover, and tagged Black Lives Matter, unity, end racism and Rage Against the Machine. Kelly's post tagged prosecute killer cops.
