Yeah...I can’t stand their politics though I do like a few of their songs. They’re hardcore leftists. Funny how they protest against a controlling government with the song “Killing in the Name of”., which is exactly what we have under the Obama Nanny State regime with Michelle, Cass Sunstein etc. I think about Obama when I hear the chorus “F**k you I won’t do what you tell me!”, but these idiots probably love Obama.

'Madison Is The Next Cairo'

So that means there will be gang rapes and threats to, and assaults of, Americans?

That’s a snappy black uniform with epaulets and red piping.

Now, where have I seen those before?

NIN’s “Head Like A Hole” is another one that rises unbidden from memory.

[cue “Guerrilla Radio” by Rage Against The Machine]

“It has to start somewhere.
“It has to start sometime.
“What better place than here?
“What better time than now?”

I hope they respond with this to quote his buddy Zach De La Rocha.

F___ you, I won't do what you tell me!

We will be victorious! LOL

(’Hysteria’ is my favorite, followed by ‘Our Time is Running Out’ and ‘Undisclosed Desires.’ I only have 2 of their CDs so far—I’m a relatively new fan)

I have that album. You have to remember that it came out in 1992, when Bush 41 was President. The band members all came of age during the Reagan/Bush years, so that’s what they were “raging” against. Of course, in 2000, Zach de la Rocha was speaking out against both parties, basically supporting Nader. Their video for “Sleep Now In The Fire” also features an appearance by none other than Michael Moore, who we all know was also a hardcore Nader supporter in 2000.

It's amazing how so many of these lefty protest songs have taken on real meaning in the age of 0bama.

I was listening to APC's "Pet" the other day. From one verse:

I'll be the one to protect you from Your enemies and all your demons

I'll be the one to protect you from A will to survive and a voice of reason

I'll be the one to protect you from Your enemies and your choices son They're one in the same I must isolate you Isolate and save you from yourself

I wonder if they ever realize how perfectly they're describing everything they stand for.

From the article, ---- "I really think that the future of the rights of working people in this country is not going to be decided in the courts," he said. "It's not going to be decided in Congress or radio talk shows. The future of rights of working people in this country will be the fight on the streets of Madison, Wis. "

I say: Fine. If it's a fight you want, you bring the stuff you know how to "fight" with- your guitar, a drum, a microphone, and your big, stupid mouth.

I'll bring the stuff I know how to FIGHT with- a 1911 .45, a Remington 870 Tactical, an AR-15, and a pair of size 12 steel toed boots.

Now, what time does the "fight" start?

I think the best they can hope for (looking at the forecast) is a snowball fight.

Hosni could have retaliated with TheVentures. Talk about a guitar attack.

yea, most of the voting public are going to know who Tom Morello is.

For real? I mean, I know who he is, I know most guitarists (Tom Morello isn't one I would consider an inspiration either) becasue I like to study their methods, but heck, I'd say most folks won't even know who the heck Rage is, in it's best day it was mostly underground rock.

I will openly admit to being a fan of their music over the years, I like a lot of it... but if they really need some face for recognition, this guy isn't it.

Myself being from IL, I would say that the unions ARE the machine or at least part of it.

you have a link detailing the specifics? ... I’d like to forward it to some of my friends that always retort with “he’s a great singer/musician” ?
