Tweet Of The Day

Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against The Machine, got wind last week that Rush Limbaugh was using one of Rage's songs during his radio broadcast.  It would have likely garnered a negative response to begin with.  But, with recent derogatory comments made by Limbaugh in regards to Georgetown student Sandra Fluke, it was inevitable that Morello would respond as he did:

Rage Against The Machine is the fourth artist in the last week to request that their music be removed from Limbaugh's radio show.  They follow Peter Gabriel, Rush, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds.  Rage's track is the most contemporary song of the group.  It's also the most ironic soundtrack choice of the show.  It rails against everything Rush and the GOP stands for.

Rage was occupying Wall Street before it was cool.  Some things never change.  And for that, I'm proud to call myself a fan.
