Listen, I’m a huge Rage Against the Machine fan. I’m not stating this to show how “diverse” I for a being a black man who listens to more than HipHop & R&B, but sincerely because I’m one of the biggest Rage fans that you will ever know. I have numerous live albums and/or compilations of their music, full length albums and I’m still looking to travel to see them live myself. I hate a “fan” who selects his music by what the music says about themselves personally instead of what the music actually says to them, and with that said, Paul Ryan needs to chill the fuck out with this bullshit about being a Rage fan. Rage’s music and ideology is TOTALLY anti every bit of politics that this man stands for. Hell, Rage lead guitarist Tom Morello recently took that mu’fucka to task in Rolling Stone Magazine….he said this shit below…
“Charles Manson loved the Beatles, but didn’t understand them. Chris Christie loves Bruce Springsteen but doesn’t understand him. And Paul Ryan is clueless about his favorite band, Rage Against the Machine,” Morello writes. “Ryan claims that he likes Rage’s sound, but not the lyrics. Well, I don’t care for Paul Ryan’s sound or his lyrics. He can like whatever bands he wants, but his guiding vision for shifting revenue more radically to the 1 percent is antithetical to the message of Rage.”
And the mutha fucka wasn’t done! I stole this shit from MTV.com ….
Morello jokingly ponders which Rage songs Ryan blasts on his iPod (“Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans?” he asks. “So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings!”) then takes him to task for a variety of his political stances, including votes to eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood and opposition to same-sex marriage and the DREAM Act.
“I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta ‘rage’ in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor,” he writes. “Basically the only thing he’s not raging against is the privileged elite he’s groveling in front of for political contributions.”
BUHAHAHHWHAAHAH!!!! Yeah….Ryan needs to just shut the fuck up, man…..unless….he really is a fan, and he really does agree with their message but he’s just selling out for the dollar…either way….he still needs to just shut the fuck up…

I’ll leave you with some classic ass mutha fucka Rage, niggas….
“Tha same bodies buried hungry
But with different last names
These vultures rob everyone
Leave nothing but chains
Pick a point here at home
Yes tha picture’s tha same
There’s a field full of slaves
Some corn and some debt
There’s a ditch full of bodies
Tha check for tha rent
There’s a tap, tha phone, tha silence of stone
Tha numb black screen
That be feelin’ like home”
