Paul Ryan can now check 'enrage rock-metal band' off his to-do list8/17/2012
Paul Ryan might be a fan of the band Rage Against the Machine, but the feeling isn’t mutual. Rage guitarist Tom Morello has hit back at the GOP VP candidate in Rolling Stone magazine, claiming that Ryan’s love for the band is “amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades.” Ouch. Morello also told the magazine that “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.” I guess we can mark you down as an “undecided,” Tom? [Source]
