Does Paul Ryan know what the music he listens to is even about???!!!
The very fierce punk/grunge/political-protest band Rage Against the Machine, that is involved with the Occupy Wallstreet movement (and many other political protests, their music is political protest) is Paul Ryan's favorite band???!!!
How veeery odd.
This news story is just tooo rich
(I saw them live once! They opened for Nine Inch Nails at a downtown bar in Minneapolis... those were the days!)
This is what the band (Tom Morello) said about Paul Ryan in an op-Ed for Rolling Stone:
â€œPaul Ryan's love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades."
"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!"
