    I don't have any problem whatsoever with people making money. However, I don't really respect people who do it selling a commoditized image of anti-capitalist revolution, or by being such blatant corporate whores while simultaneously demanding to be taken seriously for their anti-corporate political tirades. If they were an apolitical band, or hell, even a political band singing the praises of the free market, more power to them, but don't try to play the outcast rebel in a hairshirt when you're raking in the bucks from CDs they sell at Hot Topic.

    You can reiterate it as much as you would like, that doesn't make it true. I don't think RATM has contributed much, if anything, to the political movements they would like to be associated with. I think the number of people who have been had political awakenings listening to Rage Against the Machine is minimal to effectively nonexistent.

    And I don't have a problem with that, when the act in question is not simultaneously making a big show about how they're not in it for the money, but rather for some high-minded political ideal.

    I really don't think they have. At best, they've maybe inspired some mall punks to play their music real loud in their bedrooms and maybe flip off a cop or something. RATM has not transformed the life of anyone with at least two brain cells to rub together.

    There's no more difference between My Chemical Romance and RATM than there is between Burger King and Taco Bell.

    Mind you, I don't have a problem with Burger King or Taco Bell. Just don't try to tell me they're some kind of organic health food.

    Fuck it, I don’t care, I am going, and I am bringing my wife, who is caring our unborn child. I am sure I can handle it.

    Point is, I've been a fan since 7th grade and RATM rocks regardless of all the fucks that will probably ruin the show, just like the lame moshing rioting punks did in 2000 in LA at the Staples Center during the Democratic National Convention, it still feel confident that is will be a fun show.

    At any rate,
    Fuck it I hav e my own means of protection mess with my unborn child and get blown... Just so you know!

    In my opinion Rage Against The Machine fans are very socially aware, intelligent people.

    The whole 'fuck the corporate world while being on a major label' argument has been going on since 1992, and the band has explained their reasons. Whatís better, a Mac or a PC? No matter how you answer, someone else will always argue the other.

    I donít know how old you are mate, but thereís a lot of people in their mid-20ís who have been inspired by Rage Against The Machine and fucking love them.

    Donít ever compare a glam-rock, emo piece of shit band like My Chemical Romance to Rage Against The Machine. Theyíre totally incomparable. Even if you did mean for people to take it lightly.

    They're a band that have effected a lot of people's lives - it's the only argument I'm defending here.

    I hear if i don't watch Rage "someone else will take my seat". The mere concept of an all seated Rage show is quite hilarious. Surely it makes moshing near impossible.

    Plus, what is a biggot? Is it a cross between a bigot and a ******? Just wondering!

    I am a huge Radiohead fan but....this band was one of the, if not the biggest rock bands in the world when they broke up...they have been broken up for 7 years, and now they are getting back together for 1 show....My phone has been ringing off the hook today with people asking me how to get tickets...I guarantee there will be more Rage fans then Radiohead fans in 1994, do you realize how many people in the World...no not just the U.S, the world are coming to see Rage one last time? Dont under estimate the fan base of one of the most powerful rock bands of all time, I love radiohead, but come on this is Rage Against The Machine getting together for 1 last time...

    hey i can understand where they are coming from. at first i used to dispise Pearl jam. could never get it. hated them. then i worked concert security for one of thier shows and i saw 20000 people go completely nuts and it was a amazing show. i ended up respecting them becasue they connected with the ones who cared enough to shell out money to see them. thats all that counts in the end. this rage thing is gonna be very interesting.

    I see no redeeming values in you either, so it isn't as though you have any more room to talk.




    I'm pretty sure coachella will be bought out by almost every rage fan. I know I want some tickets and would have never been interested had it not been for RATM reuniting for this last show. not to mention the lineup of many other awesome DJs and bands, but if there is any 1 reason I'm getting tickets it is RATM.

    Oh the exquisite irony.
    The Rage crying may even top the Tool punks from last year.

    I pity people who are so sheltered and ignorant as to think RATM was some shining beacon of social awareness (and the idea that RATM fans are more socially sensitive is completely laughable). More of a message than the average band? sure, why not. However, not exactly saints. Read some of the stuff that inspired them. Go actually research the causes they supposedly championed. I dare you people to quote them right now without googling. I grew up listening to RATM. I was in high school, not 4th grade like a bunch of these people were. I remember people trying to articulate that crap. .... uuuh yeah that dude, that pelter dude, .. oh and the mummy guy... they're locked up for some reason... yeah fukk that. bullshit yo.

    RATM is good, and they'll put on a great show, but for fukk's sake go easy on the deification. They're just a rock band. RATM is the soundtrack to a high school football locker room 30 minutes before the big game. It's young angst.

    their name is also a bit "on the nose". just like their lyrics.

    Rage Against the Machine raised me.

    Yeh man im from england and i cant express how much i want going to see rage in april. oh my god this is actually happening.
    i agree im taking a sniper rifle to the gig emo's shall die.
    if you hate rage... you simply don't listen to their lyrics. i think that once you actually try to understand what they express through their music you wont stop listening to them.
    I LOVE RAGE.......

I will be coming from austin,tx...just to see them play...and it's totally worth it.

    yeh damn right you wouldn't have time to really enjoy the show if your in the middle of a pit full of big sweaty men trying their hardest to beat the crap out of each other, and cheering when a song finishes, then starting all over again.
    i know because i used to do it but its when you get out of the gig and think who just played??

    Rage Against the Machine raised me. Their lyrical content, flow, straight hard rock and roll, and unique guitar and style will live on forever as perhaps the most politically motivating band ever. This band single handedly inspired me to critically think for myself. Talk about year of tha boomerang. It's time to rock. The world is coming to this show just for ratm. This place is going to be the biggest coachella ever, hands down and the driving force for it is the reunion of ratm.
    Ever heard of bands like Dead Kennedys, The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers? RATM has NOTHING on them when it comes to poignant political lyrics.

    You knock indie kids but RATM attracts more meathead types who like "rap-metal" than people who actually understand what they're trying to convey.

    Personally, I probably check them out for a bit, but I saw them in 95ish at Red Rocks and I have no desire to be stuck in that kind of a crowd again.
