for full disclosure, it should be noted Rage had a song on the Godzilla soundtrack. Yes THAT Godzilla movie. Soundtrack was better than the movie but umm, this just in. That was a system.


Hospitals not profit full

Yet market bulls got pockets full

To advertise some hip disguise

View tha world from American eyes

Tha poor adore keep fiendin for more

Tha thin line between entertainment and war

They fix the need, develop the taste

Buy their products or get laid to waste

Coca-Cola is back in the veins of Saigon

And Rambo too, he got a dope pair of Nikes on

And Godzilla pure muthafugin filler

To keep ya eyes off the real killer

Morello's attack on "the system" is just another thinly-veiled attack on capitalism by a man who indisputably succeeded in life because of capitalism.

Bill Gates should start a club for these guys.


look, another thinly-veiled "America, love it or leave it" strawman.

hold up there Capote. I didn't say their work was "invalidated". i'm just saying Tom isn't as far removed from the machine as he thinks he may be. I understand trying to distance himself from Ryan and keeping his liberal, keeping it real, im in pain and anguish as an artist, i fully understand other's plight cred.

hypocrisy doesn't negate a point though... whether or not you view morello as part of the machine doesn't invalidate his opinion... a smoker can still tell people that smoking is horrible.

Hypocrisy comes in different flavors.

Tearing down a political system that made you successful and famous is like Wallace Shawn cutting the rope on the cliff in The Princess Bride.

Plus, it makes any of his complaints about "the system" pretty damn hollow. Unless you have a taste for situational irony.

so you agree he is more a part of the machine than at first blush? again some have used the words invalidate. i agree. truth is truth no matter the source.

im simply saying, he is alot more in the machine than he probably or maybe even others thinks.
