It’s been seven long years, but over the weekend Rage Against The Machine played the Coachella festival out in California. They’ve got a few other planned dates… but might they be encouraged to write new music?

I hope so.

  • Wicked. I hope so too. I’ve been wearing out their version of Maggie’s Farm. In our first house just off campus we had these two girls who rented the upstairs. Was blasting RATM one day. They came down and knocked on the door.

    “Is that Rage Against The Machine?”

    “Uh…yeah”

    “Well turn that shit up man!”

    🙂

  • I’ve seen them in concert and they are fun. I also recently saw Audioslave in Columbus, where they played RATM and Soundgarden songs. I could barely hear after that concert for 24 hours.

  • Matt likes RATM? I think my head just exploded.

  • Imagine for a second Matt singing along and fist pumping to this:

    Landlords and power whores
    On my people they took turns
    Dispute the suits I ignite
    And then watch ’em burn

    With the thoughts from a militant mind
    Hardline, hardline after hardline

    Landlords and power whores
    On my people they took turns
    Dispute the suits I ignite
    And then watch ’em burn

    Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
    Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
    Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn
    Burn, burn, yes ya gonna burn

    Don’t let the boys down at wingnut HQ find this out Matt! Just some good old fashioned fun I guess. Did you even listen to the words? You sure it wasn’t a Wayne Newton concert you were at?

  • Conservatives, especially on college campuses, are part of the true counter-culture. I do find it amusing that they seem to be communists, but I enjoy their music- I have a number of their CDs next to my James Gang albums and extensive collection of classical music. I think I got started listening to them before playing in football games in High School.

  • And I’ve seen Newton in concert, too. As well as my favorite conservative musician, Ted Nugent.
