Rage Against The Machine guitarist, Tom Morello, lambasted Republican Vice Presidential nominee, Paul Ryan, in an Op-Ed for Rolling Stone. Morello, considered by many as one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, is highly outspoken and minces no words in expressing his confusion and disdain of Ryan. The de facto House of Representatives leader has expressed that Rage Against The Machine is his favorite band.
Morello, in one of the better quotes one will ever read, took Ryan to task. Take the jump to read an excerpt.
The guitarist stated,
Paul 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. Charles Manson loved the Beatles but didn’t understand them. Governor Chris Christie loves Bruce Springsteen but doesn’t understand him. And Paul Ryan is clueless about his favorite band, Rage Against the Machine.
Do yourself a favor and read Morello’s entire Op-Ed.
