    General CommentOne Saturday morning many moons ago I was watching the much missed chart show on ITV (in the UK) when they did the top 10 Rock chart run down and played a minute or so of this song. It was the first time I had ever heard something this loud and heavy, not soon after I had bought a copy of the single, then the album and have since been a Heavy Rock/Metal music fan. Cheers Sepultura and the Chart Show!

    And now when I think about it Sepultura being played at about 11am on a Saturday morning....how many kids got scared by the Ratamahatta video :)

    General CommentI'll have to disagree with Razormasticator on his interpretation as the song alludes to drug dealing, shit holes and oppression.

    General CommentThsi song is an upbeat song about the taste of life in the slums [Favela is portuguese for slum] and here max and carlinhos are singing about how great it is to walk through the slums and feel the character contained there.

    General CommentCorrectamondo...
    I don't think the lyrics are almost corect tho'
    as they look ifferent to the ones in the roots inlay.

    but the drumming is excellent (I know, I can play it)
