A handwashing tutorial set to Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing In The Name’ went viral earlier this year as COVID-19 began to spread. The band’s official Twitter account also shared the visual aid, which offered lyrics to the classic song to help users make sure they washed their hands for 20 seconds.

“On this occasion, it’s best you do what they tell ya,” the band captioned the post.
