Some fans seem to be shocked to discover that Rage Against the Machine seem to have a political content to their songs!
The band aren’t exactly subtle when it comes to their political leanings – we mean, it’s right there in the name.
RATM guitarist Tom Morello hit back at a former fan who was furious at the ‘political BS’ that the band, famous for songs like Killing In The Name (about police brutality) and Bulls On Parade (a critique of the tactics of world leaders and the US military), were spouting.
The former Rage fan named Scott tweeted at Morello: ‘I use to be a fan until your political opinions come out. Music is my sanctuary and the last thing I want to hear is political bs when i’m listening to music. As far as i’m concerned you and Pink are completely done. Keep running your mouth and ruining your fan base.’
