Now, to the downside: RATM was signed to the "evil empire": Epic Records -- the RIAA lawsuit wielding, spyware cd distributing crooks they rail against in their songs, making them millionaires in the process - how's that for irony?
They also introduced the worst fad in decades: "Che Guevara" t-shirts. The man spend his life fighting against capitalism, and little teenage punks buy overpriced t-shirts with his name on it because they associate his image with "rebellion" or "standing up for the people," when they haven't read one history book on his life.
Ignorant RATM fans can downvote this all they'd like, but they still have true fans, like myself, who enjoy their music and their overall goal of raising youth's interest in politics, but realize that they're just as backwards as every other corporate whore band.
Me: Can you not see that "EPIC Records" logo on the CD, tard? Epic Records has also signed Jennifer Lopez and Celine Dion...how's that "raging" against the machine?
