Did Zach and company go on any political rants during Rage's set or was it simply all out brutality?

Zach and the band really let the music speak for itself. That said, during Wake Up, Zack let this rant fly:

Every president since WWII, every single last one of them, every last rich white one of them from Truman on up would have been hung to death and shot. And this current administration is no exception. It should be hung and tried and shot, as any war criminal should be. For the challenges that we face, they go way beyond administrations, way beyond elections, way beyond every four years of pulling levers, way beyond that. Because this whole rotten system has become so vicious and cruel, that in order to sustain itself, it needs to destroy entire countries and profit from their reconstruction in order to survive. And that's not a system that changes every four years, that's a system that we have to break down, generation after generation after generation after generation..."

One hell of a rant, and I agree with it whole heartedly

What the fuck did Jimmy Carter every do that was so terrible?

Rage would have a lot more success if their goal wasn't anarchy.

You missed where he compared the presidents and why they should be shot.

Thank you for your valued opinion on this discussion, your completely relevant comment will be filed for future reference.

In unrelated news: stfu and start a thread saying Rage sucks rather than taking another thread off topic.


Anywho, I really think Rage should have done more with their position. I love Rage, but I'm not going to disrespect acts like CH and Manu Chao, of course. In that sense, it would have been nice to see Zack say something about CH or at least take time between songs to talk about things like what we can do as civilians besides booing other musical acts just trying to play and shoving people in a mad dash to the front. He could have talked about their actual message and ideas, and maybe shown the light to those idiot meatheads that were there just to go "RAGE FUCK YEAH MOSHING WOOO" and not care about the purpose of the music.
