From the Mission of Burma Wikipedia page: (emphasis mine)

"Many bands have cited Burma as an inspiration, including Nirvana, Superchunk, Jawbox, The Grifters, R.E.M. (who regularly covered 'Academy Fight Song' on their Green tour), Sonic Youth, Throwing Muses, Yo La Tengo, Soul Asylum, Pixies, Sugar, Guided by Voices, Catherine Wheel, Graham Coxon and Moby - the last three of which have covered Conley's 'That's When I Reach For My Revolver.' It should be noted here that when Moby covered the song for an MTV video, he changed the lyrics to 'That's when I think that it is over' When questioned why, Moby responded that he did not want to promote gun violence."

If that last sentece doesn't make you want to go out and shoot something, then there's something wrong with you.
