Why did they choose the name Raised Fist?

Ever wonder where some bands come up with their band names?  Well, we do, and we’re sick of sitting around scratching our heads about it.  We’re hitting the streets (aka. “Internet”) to find the origins behind some of the more bizarre, intriguing or just plain random band names in the scene.  Every Wednesday we’ll be pulling the curtain back on a different band and this week it’s Swedish hardcore kings Raised Fist.

Their name was inspired by the 1992 Rage Against The Machine song “Know Your Enemy”. Specifically, it was taken from the opening line “Born with insight and a Raised Fist.” Check out the song here.
