Tom Morello Not Impressed by Paul Ryan's Liking for Rage Against the Machine


Tom Morello, Rage Against the Machine


The Rage Against the Machine guitarist claims the Mitt Romney vice-president pick is clueless about the band because what he's campaigning for is against what they are promoting in their music.

Tom Morello doesn't understand as to why Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's vice-president pick, is a fan of Rage Against the Machine. "He is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades," the guitarist voices his confusion in an op-ed on Rolling Stone.

Since he finds no explanation of Ryan's liking for the band, Morello draws his own conclusion that "perhaps Paul Ryan was moshing when he should have been listening" since the congressman "likes Rage's sound, but not the lyrics." Thus, Ryan is clueless about the message they're trying to convey in their music.

"I wonder what Ryan's favorite Rage song is? Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans? The one lambasting American imperialism? Our cover of 'F*** the Police'? Or is it the one where we call on the people to seize the means of production? So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings!"

"Don't mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta 'rage' in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he's not raging against is the privileged elite he's groveling in front of for campaign contributions," he continues.
