White Dudes With Dreads
You have to wonder whether the sort of people who listen to Rage Against The Machine aren't also the sort of people who take Loose Change seriously: holier-than-thou leftist conspiracy nuts, wanting to cut through the complexities of the compromises and cock-ups politics involves and get to some pure struggle of good against evil. That might even be a bit unfair to conspiracy nuts: there's nothing about being a conspiracy nut that requires you to be as unremittingly bloodthirsty as Rage Against The Machine are. All that said, they rocked, and when you're fourteen and a political idiot, the idea that it is an absolute moral imperative that you smash it all up and start again is pretty appealing anyway. So, for nostalgia's sake, Rage Against The Machine live tracks here.
