Are those types ever really against it? They love them that money
that capitalism gives them.   But love the attention they get by

yelling at it too...

Yet, they don't seem SO angry at the machine, in reality. 

This issue is old as politics.

I canc ertainly think of some (local) bands that are Against the Machine but realize the problem with the Machine is not capitalism. In fact, one of my favourite songs for one of this bands goes like "if the government contacts you, it is time to scream, because you are gonna have to pay more tax! [...] tomorrow you are paying extra for parking [...] then you want to use public transport and the fucking bus never arrives"

It sounds way better in the original.

I don't even know what that is. What is it, and what is wrong with it?

What??!???!

It is a Mel Brooks film.

It was written by Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor.  There is a lot of politically incorrect humor in it. The N word was used at least once.  It is based in the old west and is a story of a newly hired black sheriff in a white old west town.

Very funny film, watch it.

 

Trivia:  Richard Pryor wanted to desensitize the "N" word.  He wanted it to be as normal as the label "African-American". Pryor felt people shouldn't be offended by the word.  When people are offended by a word the word has power.  By removing the offensive status the word, the word loses its power.  Unfortunately Pryor's goal didn't work.

LOL

its an old Mel Brooks movie, mid 70s. Full of stuff the modern PC crowd's heads would explode over now.

Legal was a joke, but the PC crowd would like to make humor like that legal.

Rage Against the Machine are old farts. 

Tom's chops are epic - politically, the entire band has always had their head up their asses and were targeting the demographic of idiot potheads who drop out of JC and wear Che shirts and those dumbass necklace pouches in the colors of the South African flag. 

And their lyrics are banal. The inarticulate anger of someone with white noise for a brain wave.

Which -

is a deeper lyric and better prose on ACCIDENT than any words RATM ever put to music.
