Vulture spoke with Tom Morello this past Saturday night, and naturally the subject of Paul Ryan and his infamous love of Rage Against the Machine came up. Morello was about as forgiving as he was in a previous letter to Rolling Stone – so not very much at all.
“He was already the same jackass he was before he started listening to Rage Against the Machine as he is now.”
Going on to say:
“If there’s a song called ‘We are the one percent, and we’ve come to rob you blind with our corporate friends with our foot on your neck’ ... that’s a pretty catchy chorus, don’t you think?” said Morello. “Yeah, it would make a pretty good hook.”
