Rage Against the Machine at the RNC

By: Harry Waisbren

Rage Against the Machine made an impromptu performance at the Republican National Convention despite having their scheduled show canceled. Considering the disturbing police state like militarization to both the RNC and DNC (though the RNC is at a completely more frightening scale), I think we need a whole lot more groups like RAGE to come out and remind artists how political passion fueled the Vietnam era cultural revolution.

Check out video of their set below (via Crooks and Liars):
