Where's The Rage?

Posted by Brandon |

Tonight I was listening to Rage Against The Machine, a band that I haven't listened to in a long time, and I got a little bummed out about the fact that they aren't making music anymore. If there was ever a time for Rage Against The Machine, it's now.

They hit their zenith in the middle of the peaceful Clinton years and their politics barely ruffled a feather. Now, they could actually make an impact. They could have made an impact after 9/11, during the 2004 elections and throughout the Iraq war. They peaked 10 years too soon robbing us of great non-emo/hippie protest music for our current predicament.

Audioslave sucks, Tom. And Zack, it doesn't sound like you are doing anything. Come on guys. Please suck it up, put your differences behind you and get back to making political music and start pissing people off. We need you now more than the frat boys ever did back in the day.

Oh thank you. Someone else who thinks Audioslave sucks. You got so many cool points for saying that one on the record.

I love Soundgarden, I love Rage, but the combination of the two just doesn't work for me at all. The two just do not work together.

You know, I never realized I commented on this anonymously. My bad. That was all me.
