Veep nominee Paul Ryan has claimed Rage Against the Machine as his favorite band. Oddly, Rage Against the Machine's guitarist Tom Morello isn't the biggest fan of the Republican candidate. In fact, he had a few choice words for Ryan which he shared with Rolling Stone:
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 “Fuck 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.
