Rage Against The Machine Tease A 2016 Reunion With Mysterious Countdown Clock! See What Other Band Might Join Them To Take The Power Back!

Filed under: Music MinuteTwitterNostalgia

no title

Rage Against the Machine hasn't played together live since 2011, but it looks like the rock group could be raging together once again before you know it!

The band has launched a mysterious countdown clock on a new website, prophetsofrage.com — which is set to expire on June 1.

Along with the clock is a broken slash through a circle with five silhouettes of people extending their fists.

If that's not a big enough hint, the insignia comes complete with the hashtag #takethepowerback, which happens to be name of a song from the band's 1992 self-titled album!

There have also been sightings of the image plastered around Los Angeles — but the cryptic messages don't stop there!

Visitors to the site who enter their email addresses will receive an email reading "clear the way for the prophets of rage," a lyric from the Public Enemy song Prophets of Rage!

On top of that, Public Enemy's Chuck D. posted a video of RATM performing Bulls on Parade live in 2010 on his Twitter — suggesting that the hip-hop group could be involved in whatever reunion the rock band is cooking up:

tom morello takes his son rhoads to mr bones pumpkin patch

For someone who spent years playing guitar in Rage Against The Machine, Tom Morello is kind of a total softie!!

The heavy metal guitar god took a break from his rocker ways and turned to his fatherly duties as he took his son Rhoads to the Mr. Bones pumpkin patch in West Hollywood!

But the fun didn't stop with pumpkins!

Tom certainly had his hands full as he dragged a wagon full of supplies with one hand and grasped a bunch of balloons with the other!

And we also couldn't help but notice Rhoads got his face painted like a cheetah!!

Looks like these guys a re gonna have a ragin' Halloween! Rock on, pops!!

Ch-ch-check out more pics from their day at the pumpkin patch (below)!

Paul Ryan gets bashed by his favorite band

The Republican presidential campaign is facing some harsh rejection from all of the musicians they listen to.

Silversun Pickups recently sent Mitt Romney a cease and desist letter because he's been using the song Panic Switch at appearances without their permission. Now, the guitarist from Paul Ryan's favorite band is saying that the Vice Presidential candidate is one of his least favorite people!

In an op-ed for Rolling Stone, Tom Morrello of Rage Against The Machine has labeled Ryan as "the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades."

The guitarist acknowledges that Ryan has stated he prefers Rage's sound to their songs' lyrics, but doesn't let him off the hook as he continues:

Wow!

You cannot deny that he is committed to this cause!

Former Rage Against the Machine guitarist and Nightwachman Tom Morello was originally expected to perform at the Swan Dive in Austin for SXSW last night, but managed to turn his set into a full-blown Occupy gathering, which he organized in conjunction with Occupy Austin - and even after the police shut him down, he continued on!

Morello started his set for SXSW badge holders, but then informed them that a "people's stage" had been erected to broadcast the show on the street for the protestors and general public!

At last call, he then announced:

Very well deserved!

Rolling Stone has released a new list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and the legendary Jimi Hendrix landed the #1 spot on the list!

Here's what Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello had to say about it:

"His playing was effortless. There's not one minute of his recorded career that feels like he's working hard at it — it feels like it's all flowing through him."

We totally agree, and we're also feeling pret-ty good about the runners up, which include Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, and Jeff Beck!

Who do U think is the greatest guitarist of all time???

Rage Against The Machine's Zack De La Rocha Pens A Poem For Occupy Wall Street

Filed under: Politik

rage against the machine zack de la roacha occupy wall street

Zack de la Rocha is a man who clearly has some questions for the government. His band is even named after it! C'mon. Rage Against The Machine? How much more obvious can you get?

But his activism isn't just for show. After he heard the news of police evicting Occupy Wall Street on Mayor Bloomberg's command, he began penning a poem for the protestors.

Read it in full (or say it out loud, it's prettier that way):

Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello Calls Madison, WI "The Next Cairo"

Filed under: Music MinutePolitik

tom-morello-calls-madison-wi-the-next-cairo.jpg

In case you haven't heard what's going on in Madison, Wisconsin, tens of thousands of protesters have been marching on the state capital, battling a state bill that would cut union employees' pensions and health care benefits.

Without getting the national coverage it deserves, protestors have turned to other outlets, including reaching out to Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello, who's been a huge supporter of union rights.

When fans took to his Facebook page, writing such things as, "Hey Tom, could you please come to Madison? As I'm sure you're aware, Scott Walker is trying essentially to de-unionize," Tom decided to headline a concert in support of the protests scheduled for Monday.

Tom said:

"I really think that the future of the rights of working people in this country is not going to be decided in the courts. It's not going to be decided in Congress or radio talk shows. The future of rights of working people in this country will be the fight on the streets of Madison, Wisconsin. Madison is the next Cairo."

Wow. Those are some powerful words. We hope that the people of Madison are victorious in their battle of keeping their rights to pensions and benefits!

Power to the people!
