Rage Against The Machine's 1992 hit 'Killing In The Name' has sparked complaints – after it was played on the shop speakers in a branch of the Asda supermarket chain.

According to the Lancashire Evening Post the song, which features the phrase "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me" repeatedly bellowed by singer Zack de la Rocha, was played in the entertainment section of a branch of the shop in Preston.

Shopper Nicola Gahagan complained about the barrage of swear words coming from the speakers, saying, "It was awful – it should have been turned off."

A spokesperson for the supermarket accepted the complaint, saying, "This shouldn't have happened. We're sorry."
