What you're gonna say here when it comes to RATM music?
I'm sorry, Tom Morello is too outspoken for me. I've always said, put it in your music and let me hear it that way.
I don't want to read his ranting in guitar magazines.
I like them. A lot of attitude and angst in their music.
Their debut album kicked my ass the first time I heard it.
Haven't listened to them in a while but yeah they rocked. I liked their political and social commentary too. Legendary band in my opinion.
In an industry where truly original acts are few and far between, they were really fresh when they came out.
I appreciate them more and more as time goes on.
Great riffs out of those guys and their albums always sounded fantastic.
It’s not easy to be socially conscious, heavy, have a message...and write really catchy tunes with pop sensibilities.
I liked their first album for sure, they have some catchy stuff, pretty angry stuff, but hey, that's ok....
he's a guitar player. how is that even possible you silly goose
I love Morello’s inventiveness, but I find the singing too repetitive. can listen to them in small doses, but I don’t own any of their albums
so skip his articles in the magazines.
getting back to the OP’s original question... what do you think about RATM’s music?
He's a Cubs fan, that's all I care about.
Like someone else mentioned: measured doses.
So true. Rage still stands up today IMO. Excellent band.
The last real rock band.
Not my thing in the least. But I can admit they were very good. So i gave them a nay, of course.
Great band - heavy, funky and catchy all in one go. As for their message, i vary between thinking them too black/white, missing a lot of nuances and otoh loving that they at least gave (give?) a **** about social issues. There are enough love songs out there
I know so many people who object to Morello’s political leanings, but then unwittingly vote for candidates with similar leanings. The difference with Morello is that he’s not hiding it.
Nay on the message, but YAY on the music.
if you are flipping channels on the radio and rage is on, you know it's them, without even a hint of doubt, in about a half a second. most bands would kill for that.
i don't own any of their albums, but i've always liked them.
