Tom Morello Schooled This Poor Dude Who JUST Figured out That Rage Against the Machine Are Political
In an event reminiscent of The Great Paul Ryan Shellacking of 2012, Rage Against the Machine started trending on Twitter last night when this one Trump supporter with 45 followers @’d Tom Morello and said this:
“I use to be a fan until your political opinions come out. Music is my sanctuary and the last thing I want to hear is political bs when i’m listening to music. As far as i’m concerned you and Pink are completely done. Keep running your mouth and ruining your fan base.”
And unfortunately for this dude, but fortunately for the rest of us, Tom Morello replied:
“Scott!! What music of mine were you a fan of that DIDN’T contain ‘political BS’? I need to know so I can delete it from the catalog.”

This has lead to the Internet peanut gallery doing what it does best: roasting the shit outta some poor soul. This is by far the most entertaining social media development since we learned that what’s-his-schmuck from that one nu-metal band* has gone stupid thanks to decades of hair gel abuse.
I wish Rage Against The Machine would stop being political and go back to writing songs about bulls at a parade— Dan Sheehan (@ItsDanSheehan) June 10, 2020

To dude who used to be a fan of Rage Against the Machine until Tom Morello allowed his political opinions to come out, I feel you. I was gutted when I saw a tweet from Cookie Monster saying he liked cookies. I'm all "Keep it to yourself, my furry friend. I thought I knew you." pic.twitter.com/KFdFiedZDA— Ed Masley (@EdMasley) June 9, 2020
*I think it was Chevelle? Or… wait… was it Fuel? I know it was a one-word name. Default? I think it was Default! Making that “t” sound at the end definitely feels familiar.
