Uhhhh... they played a protest concert outside the Democratic National Convention in 2000.

They're far more leftist than you're giving them credit for.

I think you miss the point. Music is not politics, it's about the power of the people, something we too easily give up for politics. We all need a wake-up call now and then, hopefully now.

and im pretty sure that the entire time RATM was big Clinton was in office and they broke up around 2001, the same year Bush was sworn in...democrat or republican really niether is good, and im sure they have many disagreements with the democratic side...they r far from perfect too

i always thought that part of the reason why rage broke up was that there was pressure from their label for them not to go too far left... zack being idealist said fuck it, the rest of the dudes said we need to get paid (hence getting chris cornrows to fill the spot). maybe it was more than that, maybe there were threats bigger than that of the label.... but now with this one time reunion (which is obviously cash related, don't be silly and think it isn't) makes me lose that much hope that musicians will one day again be a driving force behind social change.

In a gesture of bipartisanship I suggest changing the opening act for RAGE to the reunion of SOUNDGARDEN.

Then the bands can jam 2gether, could go something like this...

"Black Hole Sun won't you cum and wash away the raaaaain? Black Hole Sun won't you cum won't you cum? That's is how you got a bullet blasted through your head. Blasted through your head."

You get it? Now testify.

For $1.5M it will probably be pretty easy for them to rage against anything.

i dont think thats why they split. i think it was musical differences. i remember a quote after they split of zack saying something to the effect of "it got to the point where you knew what every rage album would sound like before it came out."

i think he wanted the bands sound to evolve a bit, and those guys just knew how to play one way. not that that one way sucked, but i can see where hes coming from. ill still be rockin out with my cock out sunday night.
