Let your power be heard all the way to those white fascist is washington. Thank You. All of you.
This is the beginning of a new era. If this is not proof of RATM's future, to spread the word that none can do better - Problably then pinguins can fly to.
Your music forever changed me as a person and citizen. I come from a town of ultra-conservatives, having had their dogma shoved down my throat since Day 1, and you guys (mainly Zack the lyricist, really) made me see the light. We gotta take the power back and not let these criminal politicians and corporate power whores rule us any longer!
I grew up with two ultra-conservatives as parents and i too thought like they did. but then i found RATM, and you tought me to think, question, and become educated. you gave me the gift of knowledge and i owe everything to you! keep fighting the power!
Zack, sos uno de mis mayores iconos en esta vida. Toda la ideologia que atraves de tus canciones se filtro dentro de mi hizo cambiar totalmente mi manera de vivir la vida, lo que es injusto y todo nuestro terrible alrededor. Espero que me entiendas. Un fan desde Argentina.Mis mejores valores para ustedes.Fab
please come to south africa!!!! you have no idea how much of afollowing you guys have here. your music and message is timeless! and we need you! peace
Thank you for your words. No other music group/ music has ever touched me and brought out my rage like your music has. As a self-identified CHICANA no te puedes imajinar cuanto valoro tu musica y aprecio que tus palabras esten ahi afuera para que las oigan los puercos y sepan que no nos quedaremos callados! Tu le das voz a la RAZA! It feels good to know that I'm not the only ENRAGED person out there willing to take action,there is hope!WE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD!!LA REVOLUCION SIGUE!!QUE VIVA COMANDANTA RAMONA!!QUE VIVA LA MUJER!Gracias por todo el trabajo y amor que le ponen a su musica- Me ha cambiado la vida.
Keep up the great work man, your lyrics, music and ideas have really changed how I think of alot of todays situations so keep it up man.
Wow, The website changed a lot! In a good way =D I'm happy you guys are back! Greatings From the Netherlands.Hope 2 see you on Pinkpop 2008 ;)
Rage Against the Machine, the most important reunion yet. It's about time you guys went down and played in Dubai, with an audience that ranges from Palestinians to Irish to Pakistanis to Americans to Filipinos to South Africans(and many more), it's a whole mix of cultures who you can wake up and unite. As for now, the reunion shows were the baddest and loudest shows of the summer.WB
If we ever needed you guys its now. Thank you Zach for stepping back up to the mic. There are so many of us out there who feel like we have no real voice, who wish for a better future for or children and for ourselves, and because of people like you, people like me can believe that there is still hope. I remember the first time i ever herd your voice i got goose bumps, the i listened to your words and I got scared, Then I paid attention and I became aware. Its been to long my brother, welcome back, we missed and needed you.
Bonjour Zack i'm belgian and i'm 15 and you're my favourite singer i'm happy that you're back excuse me for my english because i don't learn english i'm a fan of you I have been listening to Rage for 9years when i was 6 and now i understand the politic because your lyrics is very "intelligent" i expect with pleasure that you come to belgium of france of european tour.It's my dream thank's Thank you very much for read this comment thank's Brad,Tom ,Timmy ,Zack
The emotion you give to "The Ghost of Tom Joad" is unrelentingly amazing... every single time I listen to that song I can feel it... and your Coachella speech... that first time hearing it... in person... was unforgettable.Frank Ft. Worth, TX
Thank you so much for getting back together this past year! ...and thank you for bringing your message to those that need to HEAR!!! .... Caught you guys at Randalls Island, NYC this past July ...greatest experience of my concert life! ....one more album, PLEEEEESE!!! :)
Thank You! Thank you! For the most unforgetable reunion! Im so glad the RAGE is back! I saw you guys at rock the bells in san bernadino,cal and i gotta say seeing you guys back on that stage was without a doubt the best experience ive ever had! Please come to Phoenix,AZ you guys were suppossed to come when touring with the beastie boys but it was cancelled remember? PLEASE ONE MORE ALBUM!
The sands of time have passed through the hands of many, and yet the struggle for freedom is still very prevalent in all walks of life. I am with you, till the end; as this land is the birth place of endless problems and thus we must confront the enemy on all lines and in all possible facets. Continue with your course of action as your words speak to countless masses. Soon they will all understand that freedom and equality are simply forcefed lies that we have been lead to believe. You are a light in the dark, the beacon of hope that guides us. We thank you for you action against inequality and strife. Viva Equalidad!
hola zack!I'm so glad you are back!viva la raza!viva rage!
THE WORLD NEEDS THIS MUSIC MORE THAN EVER!
Hey Zack, starting a band in 2 years, its going to be politically charged like rage, let me just say, that rage has inspired me more than anything, just as much as the bible. Every time I feel like shit I put a rage song on and hold my fist in the air. I'm only 14 what do I know, I am interested in world events, and when I change high school I'll take my beliefs like rage did, and stand up for them, your the only band to stand up and shout your words, and not sell out by endorsing big companies .
I'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND HOW SOMEONE COULD POSSIBLY PUT DOWN LYRICS LIKE YOU DO...WAS IT ANGER OR WAS IT SOMETHING ELSE???????
The world without thhe RATM was an empty place. When we really needed you, you broke up. I'm so happy that you reunited and I know that even if we haven't seen each other, we feel and think the same.
Please come to Kansas City!!! You guys would be a huge hit. RATM has been my favorite band as long as i can remember. If you guys did a show in Kansas City it would be a drem come true! Keep sending the message and change peoples lives like you changed mine. I thank you, but most of all KEEP ROCKIN!!
I hope you guys record a new album. I'm a huge fan and I would love to see you here in Turkey. Believe me. You have lots of fans around here. You totally rule.
I agree with everyone else, I cried the day you guys broke up, and now more than ever, i think that we need you back. Im so thankful that you put aside your differences and are doing this....This country needs RATM way more than ever before.
HI ZACK, HI RATM, SORRY MY ENGLISH, BUT ANYWAY.....JUST A FEW WORDS....YOURS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT MUSIC BAND IN MY LIFE, SINCE 1990, PLEASE, PLEASE, COME TO CHILE, WE NEED A DOSIS OF YOUR WORDS AND ROCK.........PLEASE.....COME TO CHILE....AHH..ANDA ZACK REMEMBER YOUR NEW YEAR IN CHILE.....FOR THAT, YOU MUST RETURN QITH ALL THE BAND........''WHEN IGNORANCE REIGNS LIFE IS LOST''

Hello, Zack, and the rest of the band. I'm Carlos Velozo, from Chile, Neruda's land. I started listening to RATM when I was 15, about 12 years ago, and I've always felt identified with your attitude towards the system, your non-commertial style, your commitment to truth and your way of being truthful on any stage. I mean, you didn't come to please the audience, but to slap their faces to wake them (us) up, didn't you? and if we like it, that's fine, if we don't, that's fine as well... you ain't selling shit here, are you? Well, I just wanted to say that RATM is the only band I trust, know what I mean? and that's because you are who you are.I'm glad you're backCarlos V.
Until you appear on this blog for real, I just want to send you one BIIIIIIIIIIGGGTHANK YOU!!!!THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!Big respect and love from Serbia!p.s.(you should have come here after Slovenia in 2000. I was in Slovenia together with my band mates, but my visa was at it's end and I hadn't managed to see you there, so I had to come back hoping that I would see you soon, but after that everything was over... Until now! Now you should ...HAVE TO!...come to Serbia. We really need you here. Until 2000 lot of thing happened, I finished my psychology studies, got married, started working as a psychologist in a high school, BUT YOU ARE STILL MY FAVORITE BAND, AND YOU ARE STILL MY FAVORITE VOICE/VOCAL, but of course after my wife - no hard feelings :) I wouldn't mind if you put me on your backstage guest list ;)If you think you need any help/information from here, feel free to send an email, I'll do my best to help:email@example.comHope to see you soon!
Guys, your music is more relevant now than it has ever been! This world needs you!
Zack i really love you; you are the #1 your lyrics are so true... xoxo

OK, Since this posts will be read by the real Zack, there is a question that I already posted on zdlr.net-forum(knowing that I wasn't talking to the man) :)So:Zack,is it you in the "Guerrilla Radio" video in the right/up corner on the beginning of the video sewing on a machine, just as other "actors"???Please let me know!And if I am right...I definitely deserve to be on your VIP list (I'll pay the ticket for my wife) ;)Best firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm not sure if it is allowed to post addresses here, but I'll try.There is the address on zdlr.net forum, I mentioned on my previous post, so all of you, visiting this blog can see what I am talking about.http://www.zdlr.net/board/index.php?showtopic=14430Bye!
It is so good to see you guys back at it. I have been a fan for many years and even when it seemed to be over I still stuck with the thought someday RAGE would continue what was meant to be to help free the minds of those in need. I am a bigger fan then I was back then. I truly understand the truth you guys have been pushing out since day one. I was a teen when I first heard RATM. I am now 27 and no other group/individuals has ever moved me or made me sit back, think and see the turth. I like many was lost or just enjoying the music but since those days I have truly listened and took time to understand your movement. Much love to you all. Raise your fist & resist.Ciao,Joshua X"Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. Psalm 1441:1"
When you guys broke up something inside me died i hated the fact zack had left and didnot belive it but as time passed i moved on, then one day my brother says rage are back it was like the spirit inside me has exploded and now is stronger than ever, if there was ever a time our youth need a voice it is right here right now and as each day passes till i see you at the big day out it is almost painful. Save some energy on your Australian tour for the sydney BIG DAY OUT. Peace, love and KEEP THE SPIRIT ALIVE..........
Finally the people that have the truth and knowledge of which I have lived by are back. Before RATM my life was nothing but a LIE but now everything is clear. So just DO WHAT YOU GUYS DO BEST SPREAD THE WORD. And lead our youth of today to a revolution. "MEXICA TIAHUI"
lol! rage has totally entered the blogosphere!
Zack, if you ever read this, thank you for everything. You are an inspiration, and have changed my life, which is now dedicated to helping change the lives of others.
The world needs you back so badly! Fight the fascist power!Hope you find your way to Roskilde Festival next summer!
HI GUYS, HOW ARE YOU??WELL, FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR GETTING BACK TOGETHER,WE NEED MORE THAN EVER YOUR MUSIC AND POLITICAL SENSE...I LISTEN TO YOUR MUSIC SINCE A COUPLE OF YEARS, BUT I HAVEN´T GOT THE OPORTUNITY TO WATCH PLAYING,SO PLEASE COME TO CHILE!! :D OR SOUTH AMERICA, HERE THERE IS REVOLUTIONARY HISTORY,( maybe, just an idea, you could do the: "THE CHE´S TOUR"...like when ernesto guevara traveled all around south america to became what he is now days, one of your icons, and my too) PLEASE COME!!... I KNOW YOU HAVE RELATIVES HERE ZACK!! :Dwe want rage against the machine in Chile, please!! I´m not the only one!!
It would be absolutely amazing if you could add an Irish tour date, possibly in support of the Irish Anti-War Movement's protests at our country's Shannon airport being used as a stop-off point for U.S. torture and rendition flights to Iraq. Besides, it would just be a fucking amazing gig!!! Keep up the good work bro.
Great stuff, it would be absolutely amazing if you could add an Irish tour date, possibly as part of the Irish Anti-War Movement's protests at the American military using our Shannon Airport as a stop-off point for rendition and bombing flights. What a show it would be!!!

Ciao, You do a concert in italy it near future?
Zack, you're the biggest influence on the shaping of my ego that I've ever come across. You're lyrics got me interested in the world; you encouraged me to educate myself and see beyond dogma and the doctrines of conservativism. I am now a young anarchist who's a junior in high school, and because of my ideas I have been probed by the San Antonio police department. I thought domestic spying was reserved for terrorism, so apparently me, a young, white, rebellious anarchist, have become a terrorist. I mention this as an example of what ideas can get us in to, though your conflict with authority goes far beyond mine. But like you said to those fascist motherfuckers at Fox, we will not stand down from these positions. We refuse to be silent, and we refused to lower our fists. Thank you Zack. Take the power back.P.S. If you somehow got back to me, that would mean more than you know. My email's email@example.comPeace.
" Preto S.D.Couto disse... Man , i have no words to express what i´m feeling right know.....man i´m from portugal...i love ratm since forever , since i was born... honestly man.. this is one dream coming true..."I'm feeling exactly the same way!!! I just can't belive it! I'll be there!!!
RATM are the MC5 of my generation and they have been sorely missed during a time when we needed them most. No band can get a mass of people to think, to act, to feel more than they can. I'm tired of feeling like my country has been hijacked by crooks and corporations and feel that I have to speak apologetically to my friends in other countries for the actions of the US. I'm awake Zack and I'm listening...
bring it .......... BRING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F U C K I N G B R I N G I T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Zack. Come to northern Europe... The ultra-conservative party called frp is gaining power, we need a revelation. We need RATM. And remember; You are the system when you stop fightin' it.Comrade Oskar, NorwayOhm and I love your music :P
GOOD TO SEE THE RE-UNIFICATIONWE SURE CAN USE A FREE MUMIA CONCERT FROM YALLHIT US UP AT WWW.FREEMUMIA.COM
we'll change the course of history,do you remember your words?now i'm waiting 4 this and......italy's waiting 4 you!
I had tears in my eye when you guys split up, because i thought i was never gonna experrience a live concert by you. I hope you guys fine your way to Roskilde Festival in Denmark next summer. Or else ill find my way to you at Rock am ring or Pinkpop.Thank you thank you thank you!
go to brazil please R.A.T.M !!!!!
After the great show of Cypress Hill in the SW festival in August of 2007 I'm going to have 1 more dream coming true, after losing your first and single show here in Lisbon many years ago you are back ... After 10 of July I can die happy ... :-D thanks RATM http://www.myspace.com/chlivep
COME BACK BACK BACK! Brasilian fans are waiting for a concert for a loooonnng time! Our reality is much similar to that you talk about in the songs of RATM, Brazil is a real brother country to Mexico, a country with much more potenciality than whats it is achieving at the time.And plus, your music is one of the best. Are you ready to be a rock legend like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd,The Clash? That's what RATM will be in the future, a legend, side by side whit Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Radiohead, Blur, Oasis. So, you return is very waited. FAN MOMENT: WE LOVE YOU RATM! HEHE.GO INTERNACIONAL PORTO ALEGRE, SOCCER WORLD CHAMPION AGAINST BARCELONA 2006!
"You see the powerful got nervousCause he refused to be their servant'Cause he spit truthThat shook heads" (voice of the voiceless)Please watch RP 4 Freedom music video: TY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlPjsGFcXlgLiberty or death, accept no substitutions!Be Well,Fran
Power to the people! Liberty or death! We shall all be free people living in free lands. Those who choose to deceive others for their own personal gain shall parish at the hands of the good. Bloodshed is necessary in the name of freedom and peace. We must not fear. We must unite. Long live RATM and rebelincmusic! Thank you for your inspiration. We will join you in the fight. -rebel inc.
adorei a volta de vocês ........curto muito o som e parabéns!!!!!vocês são minha maior influência..
adorei a volta de vocês......curto muito o som parabéns!!!!!!!vocês são minha maior influência...
Welcome back. Now take this fucker to another level! THE THIN LINE IS EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!
Please Come to Brazil Zack is please Zack it comes to Brazil in 2008, because a lot of people believe in you, all will go a lot of people she loves you all. Please come to Brazil, it was for you to have come more you twisted the ankle, then please I implore for all the Brazilians it comes to BRAZIL that you won't be sorry!!!!! It will be the best of the show of the world
Hey Zack! Just want to say that when I discovered Rage Against The Machine, and specially your lyrics, my thoughts on the world have changed drastically. I can´t stand seeing human rights being constantly put aside in most situations nowadays, and those suckers in the USA are encouraging that. They are the anarchists, not us! Thank you for existing and for spreading the message of freedom and revolution, without you the world would be a hopeless place. Hasta la victoria! Together we stand! Francisco, from Portugal
since you guys last played sydneys big day out with an awesome rendition of fuck you with an australia day, invasion day mantra the festival has become a breeding ground for right wing racist flag waving fuckwits. please be sure and send them a message about where they can stick their bigotry and patriotism.
i'm just trying to get some people to go with me to germany. it's as near as it can be i'm from slovakia, student of political science. there is a lot of inspiration and energy in your music guys, no matter what is going to happen your four albums will be here forever and it will always be the best piece of music ever made, it's pointed, original, it has sense and heart and it is needed.thank you for your reuniting i hope i will manage to get on that festival.collecting money and people right now...
I am spanish from barcelona, i am anarchy (A)!! Are you going to have a concert in spain
and how about going to pepsi sziget festival in hungary? any chance ratm?i'd love to see you playing in one of those "liberated" countries enjoying economic reforms, democracy and free market and of course endless economic growth.btw i'm not anarchist, fascist or whatever... i think that ratm lyrics make perfect sense and their opinions are backed with relevant information, i don't like wild stupid parties who see the point of this music in f*cking, destruction and opposition to everything and everybody no matter what.it's clean and clear that this world needs serious turn, revolution and wake up kick but it cannot be done the simple way, learn from history. use words where you need to use words and use your arms and legs to kick somebody to his ass when you need to...
mabuhay! ituloy ang laban!
COME BACK TO BRAZIL!!!SAO PAULO / BRAZIL LOVE YOU!TATOO
BRASIL needs RATM !!!!!!!!!!!this country is dominated for corruption and fake democracy....RATM is the hope and force for the revolution !!!!sorry for the bad inglish !!!!
Hey, I've been listening to your your music since I was 13. I've never been to one of your shows. Can you do a North American tour. Thanx for getting back together guys. It means so much to all of us.
Your music and lyrics have forever changed me as a person and the way I see our nation's stance and involvement in the world as we know it. Never stop saying what you have to say and give more power to the people, forever!
Can't wait for the Melbourne show!
hey ZackI want to sayRage against the machineIs the best band of Hardcore/Rapcore/Funkmetal/etcI would like known RATM comes to BRASIL?thanksflw
With the power and influence you have and the amount of shit going down in the world today I would LOVE to hear a new album!! Anything in the works? Your work is one of a kind and exquisite, and I hope you keep it up!
RATM THANK YOU!! so much for coming to New Zealand. I'm totally sad that its only one show and only at Big Day Out the worst concert/festival to be held in NZ, however i am willing to put up with an entire day out in the sunshine with drunk idiots just to see you guys after 11 years. last time ratm was here was in 1996, i was 15years old and it the best concert ever!! (in 1996 only one concert at BDO again! why not more shows???!!!). RATM has inspired me in such a way that i can't even explain. thank you for your words Zack and i'm so happy that this reunion has taken place...(i hate Audioslave, but Tom i like your one man revolution cd!) i've been counting down from 4 months, its now 4 days to go to the concert and i can't wait!!! i'm the girl in the rage shirts stalking every hotel in auckland at the moment, if its meant to be i'd love to meet RATM even for just 1 minute! (not sure what i'd say though besides 'your guys are awesome', 'marry me' and 'i love you' and lots of drooling..obviously..) but knowing my luck since i am a massive fan of ratm chances are i'll never get to meet them :( and i'll be the skinny brown skinned girl who gets to watch the concert of her favorite band all the way from the back, while other white drunk male idiots who don't even know who RATM are will take up all the space shoving us poor females right at the back.. :( alas, i am still excited RATM are coming!! anyone else in auckland going to BDO? i'd love to meet fellow ratm fans firstname.lastname@example.org
I wanted to thank because I increased listening your songs....come to Brazil because an east country needs the last message for your sound....I am from Belo Horizonte and it would like of you witness them live...HASTA SIEMPRE COMPANHEIRO....Resistência Contra a Máquina.
Thank you so much for being back. I've never been to a RATM concert and I want to so badly. Sadly, I heard you won't show up at Roskilde Festival in Denmark this summer because one of you is having a kid or something.. Which, of course, is a blessing and I can't congratulate the lucky one enough.. I just wondered, 'cause you're scheduled to play at Optimus Alive in Portugal, only four days after Roskilde? I still have hope you might show up.. But, I'm a patient girl and I can wait.. that is if I choose not to go to one of the other festivals to see you guys!Love your lyrics, your music and your spirits. You can be nothing but a true inspiration and rolemodel for all kinds of people, you rock! Also, I learned about the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal through you, and now I myself am fighting for his freedom.Love, admiration and respect from a huge fan.
Thank you Zack, thank you for opening my eyes. Born in the tipical white and rich town, I though you were either a Democrat or a Republican, and that was it. Thanks to your lyrics, i have been able to look through both parties to find the corruption inside them.You guys should come to the Bay Area, you have a lot more supporters than you think. Long Live the Anarchist Revolution.
Zack, I am a hardcore Christian, and so aside from Jesus Christ, you are my hero...I believe American citizens can rise up against the greedy/evil corporations with violent gun power/mass-scale theft...and I'm not even kidding...and who better to run it than you guys...the only problem would be logistics/planning/when/where/recruiting "soldiers." I believe movies like "V for Vendetta" can actually be pseudo-blueprints for a REAL revolution...and who better to run it than you guys...With DEEP ADMIRATION/LOVE/RESPECT, "achameleon."
Thanks for reuniting RAGE. I would love to hear a new album. I know it's "another ball of wax," but please consider it in the future. We would all love to hear new music.
BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!BRAZIL need you!
i migrated to NZ becoz of Bill Clinton bombing my country (serbia) my parents left all their freinds and family to save me and now the US is doing it to Iraq...may George bush and his blood thirsty goverment rot in hell and may freedom spread to every1 in the world. black or wite,young or old,poor or rich..your music lets me express my feeeling towards these NAZIs of today...u have showed me the way and last nite on the 18th of jan i was uz at big day out...the energy there was great and i hope one day u and all ur fans take it out side the white house and scare these pricks till
The world needs these lyrics, beats and honest people. The reunion is the best thing that could happen to do that, because with the band reformed more and more people will have their eyes opened to the REAL world. please please come to the leeds festival in the UK i have to see your work LIVE! keep up the amazing work!!! please.
firstly, bring out a new album,the best abum ever style, your music hasnt dated in 20 years, i still listen to it like for the first time, just blow the world away. then do a super massive free concert, all invited, go down in history for the biggest gathering of people. the energy would create a fucking supernovae or something. just do what you do and no fucking around this time! i knew you'd be back,it never made sense. when your on stage, it must be the best feeling possible by the human body, why would you ever want to stop that, you are one band that is truely loved, do not disapoint! i truely am your biggest fan
Argentina is waiting for RATM!!! Pleaseee!!!!!!!!!!!!
Zack, I saw the speech you gave to your crowd in Auckland, New Zealand on "Youtube". It (the speech) was dead-on fantastic. I have also seen your 2-part interview with Noam Chomsky, in which the questions you asked him were there too dead-on fantastic. However, I personally believe Noam Chomsky is a bit too pacifistic/ "gradualistic" (if that's not a word I just coined it). I think we can overthrow the evil corporations/ politicians with violent gun-power/mass-scale theft. I said this in an earlier post, but the only problem would be logistics-when, where, how, who etc. A fantastic master-plan would be for a significantly HUGE group of armed AMERICAN guerrilla fighters (possibly fans of you) to infiltrate and take capture of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. and possibly the White House as well...Then once we had COMPLETE control of both these buildings we could begin to read through highly-classified documents...This may seem a bit grandiose/far-fetched but theoretically if we ignore Chomsky's overly "gradualistic" ideas this "master-plan", with enough, and I mean HUGE numbers, of heavily-armed American citizens, physically bashing their way through heavily-armed security into the Capitol building and White House in Washington D.C. could be well...let's me just say...quite realistic in fact...at least I think...Call me a fanatic but I believe this "master-plan", if STRONG enough, could work...
Back in School listening to my cd player,one friend of mine said to listen to a cd he just bought.I took it and played it. i have never heard such Music that inspired me to do lots of things and teached me how to stand up for whats right.Need less to say it was RATM.Texas is a BIG state and thousands of people would die to see the play here.The closest that texas ever got to see some members of RATM was when audioslave came around but it was not the same.RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE NEEDS TO COME TO TEXAS!!!!!!!
I Love you, Zack. Please join the Ron Paul r3VOLution! He does not represent those Bilderberg a$$holes. He is a 'tame' renegade who IS a Voice for the Voiceless.."You see the powerful got nervousCause he refused to be their servant'Cause he spit truthThat shook heads"....MLK was for civil liberities and a man of the people....FREEDOM IS POPULAR! -RP
viva chavez! see you in madrid.
I was a few metres away from you during the NZ concert and your speech went down as one of the most influential moments of my life. Not because of the content, but because of the ferocity that was behind it. The raw anger and power that emanated from your words will continuously affect my work as a film maker and also as a New Zealander - notorious for our silence and complacence.
you guys rock im a big fan from mexico city please come here a lot of people like to see u live.VIva zapata!! viva la revolucion!!viva rage!!
I believe in a lot of what Zach has to say. However some of you are idiots. Yes capitalism has its drawbacks i.e. GREED. But the reason we even have the internet that losers like myself can post on is because of it. I am not a fan of Marxism Leninism or any ism's. I think its all crap including capitalism. To make a black and white issue out of something that is actually different shades of grey says not hey look at me I'm a rebel, but look at me I am an absolutionist with monochromatic views of the world. The same type of person I am trying to revolt against. Frederick Douglas said without struggle there is no progress. This is true however you must sometimes play the roll of Henry Clay to effect change in Government. Both are right and both are inevitably wrong. In 2008 lets vote to not change the sex or color of the presidents skin because that has nothing to do whith the state of the union. It only perpetuates racism and sexism to bring that to the front ground. The truth of the matter is when you are looking for a real candidate look at which ones do not accept money from PAC (Political Action Comities a.k.a Lobbyists). This is how you fight the GREED of capitalism. Besides to demonize someone for making a profit is absurd. Profits are what keep your lights on and keep us employed.
I just wanted to thank the band as a group for settling your differences, and seeing that the US needs you. You need to release a new alblum and come to Washington DC during A March against the war in Iraq. Washington is the root of the problem for the world. Please come and lets be heard. We need you here!!
zack you need to come to CANADA mainly toronto!! around 2003 i was in english class and my teacher told me about RATM and once i started listening to you my eyes were opend so much and i now see that my life may be good but it comes at someone elses price even the jeans i wear they were probily made by a teenager just like me for 20 cents. thank you for reuniting you will now show many other who were like me living in a fake world what is really happening around us also becasue of you we will now be able to act and stop what we know is going on. we will never be silencedsincerly nicholas powidajko
COME TO CANADA, WE NEED YOU HERE!it is a great music scene and you guys have so many fans down here. we canadian can rock harder,scream louder and represent the music of rage better than any one else. Come on down, unless youre scared. haha
I've given myself whiplash at the gig last night! Never responded to music that way before... beyond words. Very inspiring words guys - thanks so much. WAKE UP!!!!!
WELCOME BACK RAGE, a dream came true, the world needs you more than ever. Hope seeing you in Greece again, 'cause this country was calm like a bomb, but now it has been detonated. Give your unique power to the people, you know the way.
We are so disapointed, we woke up very early to get tickets for your paris gig but it was sold out after only five minutes ... And people are already selling them on ebay for twice the price ... Guys you have to do something about it (second date??) We've been waiting nearly ten years for that so pleaaaaaaaaase help us ... dozens of people were waiting just like us ... This is not a threat but if we can't find a solution ; burn, burn, bercy's gonna burn !!! yeaaaaaaaaaaaah !! Anyway we still love you guys and we very much hope to see you soon ...Julie & Tibo

zack?what do can we do here in new zealand as now?realy enjoyed the show here it was the best ive ever seen.also wauld you guys think of doing another album?what did you think of new zealand wauld you ever come back for another show?
É grande a alegria de ver a banda responsável pela maior revolução da música mundial em curso, que ousa levantar a cabeça e ser a voz dos oprimidos, subjulgados e injustiçados deste mundo, à despeito da fúria dos opressores. Me causou grande tristeza ver a sua ruína e a substituição por algo tão inofensivo como o AUDIOSLAVE. Seu retorno triunfante é a volta da esperança, da afirmação que música pode e deve ser feita para TRANSFORMAR ESTE MUNDO EM UM LUGAR MUITO MELHOR.Minha felicidade é ímpar!Viva o RATMViva a revolução em escala mundial!
Zac and the boys, Much respect and a huge thanks for the Big Day Out performance in Auckland in January. Your spiel on bush was gold and was so true. You along side your great band are an inspiration to all (well, those people who think anyway). Keep on with the powerful energy RATM's music produces brother, i cant thank you enough. If it wasn't for Rage and Tool's truly artistic quality and truth the world would be very different ... and impotent towards true knowledge!!!
I had 2 RAGE albums from before and then I downloaded 2 (some years ago). Now when RATM is back it's time too pay back for all great music and support the best band ever.Today I ordered all 4 RATM albums and it feelt great too pay for it.Take the power back! See u on Hultsfred!
hey, im from derry in the north of Ireland of londonderry in northern ireland as some would call it,growing up i took it for granted that people hating each other because of their religion was ok, you opened my eyes, i know now that my country is not normal and has had its share of shit, i'd like to thank you for opening my eyes, my anger is a gift, and i will try to use it to better myself and those around me, i am travelling to portugal in july to see you live as it has always been a drwam of mine, thank you for helping me.brian.
salve rapaziada firmaeza total??tamo a espera de vcs aqui no Brasil ta todo mundo loko a ver o som de vcs aqui...vai ser loko pra caralho.....revolução não será televisionada...e jamais iremos nos entregar ao facismos do canalhas,,......Brasil COM Z NUNCA......SALVE RATM...OBRIGADO POR VOLTAREM
Let me tell you, rage against the machine... you are not alone in this fight... even in the smallest cities that belongs to the imperialists, have people with strong will and ideals like yours, ready to get in the struggle!keep showing hope to the world!
Don't know if u read these messages...probably not ...sorry but i don't feel such happy ... can't imagine how i admire u and i really think that you are precious for your courage, your fights, your convictions. I understand that all the people around the world are totally getting crazy at the annoucemet of this reunion. U give hope to lot of persons , and i really thought that we need u back ... but not in that way ... When rage broke of course i felt something strange but you continued your purpose, with more discretion ... i thought " yes this guy got the right thing , he's free ! " ...free from pressure, free from major, free from this horrible music system ... He's going to get more strenght from this situation and more credibility. And then you're back ... with a world tour !! Still working with a major, without giving any chances to the one who have other things to do than surfing on the net for hours to see if RATM is giving a show somewhere ( because in France all the tickets were sold in 4 hours ... bought for most by guys who make you pay 190 euros the ticket !! a shame ! ) ... i don't understand ... I'd like to ... Hope your new dream will give you satisfaction and all that you hope ... but me, I stop following this , i can't . I've never been a fan, a fanatic, just someone who found in you a real Human being that had the courage to brake with celebrity and found another way of telling his rage. Even if the first albums were a real revolution ... i prefer saying goodbye ... I keep in my heart and my soul this image of U as the singer and the guide that U have been one day ... and close my eyes now. Please take care and be carefull on the way U are taking now...still believe U are precious.And people enjoy the shows.
Zack Come to Texas!!!
RATM please come to PERU!!! make a south american tour!!! the music you made is just...incredible...PERU waits for all fo you!!!BOmbtrack think about it please!!!
Please, come to Serbia!And this is what you get for not listening to Uncle Sam:http://sandersresearch.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1265&Itemid=97
Dear zack, it is good to have you back!! we need a good strong voice like yours to express ourselves and i missed your lyrics and the things you have to say about our worldleaders. you know what to say and how to say it...great to have you back man!! have a great show in holland at pinkpop and come again sometime so i can get a chance to see you guys perform live as well!!! lots of love, jessica
does zack ever check this? if so there is a poem called "prayer before birth" by Louis MacNiece which would work perfectly as lyrics for a song for you if you put music to it.also, I'm buying tickets to the Reading Festival just to see you there. it's gonna be awesome.
Show in Brazil, when?????in Rio.
hey to all the ratm's!so, how about that Sziget Festival this year, any chance you'll be playing there?Or Exit Festival?
An economic crash could come soon, kick the state while it's down. Your words are timeless, you really are a militant poet. I can't tell you how much of an inspiration you have been to me. I started reading Chomsky because of you. All power to the people, Zach. Ideas are bullet proof.
Yeah, Danny Boy, Chomsky is a "as it feels good rebel", but it is Ron Paul for the Long Haul! He has been spit'n Truth about the economy for the last twenty years, ever since the US was taken off the gold standard. Dr. Paul is the ONLY one to stand up to the Federal Reserve Banking system. It is the cancer of the World's economic crisis and should be obliterated!!
im not gonna lie, you and the rest of rage are fucking awesome, and your the voice of my rebellious ways, but im starting to lose hope because no one fucking gets it (maybe cuz im onluy 13, and all the people at my school are media empire controlled dumbasses). i sing your lyrics, and try to explain them, and no one even fucking listens! no one gets it. i try to tell someone something, and they just turn around. i guess theyre just afraid. and theres something else thats pretty upsetting. i know you guys are much more global thatn this, but you know theres somehting wrong with your school when youre teacher insults a student over the fucking intercom, and then laughs at them in the hall. is that not fascism, contradiction, and arbitrary behavior all rolled into one? and not to mention its a catholic school. you know, maybe you guys will listen. hell, zack de la rocha may not even be reading these comments, but in the name of all that is good and rebellious, i hope he is, i hope he listens, i hope he understand. you guys are my idols, and my saviors in this country of contradiction and fascism. theres also one other thing i have to say. you guys should do a show somewhere around rhode island, cuz ever since i started listening to you, its been my dream to see you live.peace -troy witter
you know wat doesnt make sense to me? in the advertisement right before they play the music video on the website that the link on your site goes to they say freedom is power. wat the fuck?
Hey Zack. I am a student at Penn State, PA and we are having a rally for workers' rights April 8th and then a major action the following week, April 15. United Students Against Sweatshops is trying to get President Gram Spanier to sign onto something called the Designated Suppliers Program. It would be awesome if you came. I know it's short notice. I guess i more so want to know if you ever attend these kinds of events, with special requests? my email: email@example.com
I have learned so much from RATM and I have had countless conversations and debates with what I learned. Continue to spread your words... Young Americans are listening as much as ever...Thank you!!
Zack se que haz estado en Chile, Cuando vienen por aca??
Cuando vienen a Sudamerica??
Hey Zack!RATM was on our mp3 players in Chad.Check out www.GoogleDarfur.com there are free videos to watchget in touch!Peace
Hey, i don't care if you're gonna read it or not. But i'm a brazilian an i just wanna let the message in the name of all brazilians and citizen of latin america, that we want you play here. We cant understand how you (RATM) never played here wet and pretend that care about our situation. Guevara, Zapata, TuPac Amaru, Subcomandante Marcos and all that EZLN stuff don't mean nothing to you?I'm just talking pacefully and questioning your attitude. I hope we fans of RATM in altin america receive an answer from the band. It makes me fell sad dont see any atitude from the band...Sorry by the bad inglish thing. I got to leran all alone cause we dont got money to pay teachers.
ratm rocks! i love zack he has an awesome voice and meaningful, beatiful lyrics. i also love what he stands for. also down with racism!
if zack told me to jump off a cliff then i would. it's not that i don't value my life, it's just that everything zack says makes alot of sense and my life makes no sense.
this is for the comment above mine..they say "jump", you say "how high"? that shit is never good, no matter who asks you to jump! that's all i wanted to say..
Yo Z, drop that album man! Other that Trent and Maynard, you're my guy for the real sh*t. This (mexicano) brother is waiting. Muchas Gracias.
Hey! Come to make a show for the Center Bell in Montréal city. There would be a lot of people which would come to see you. Rage Against The Machine are sick!!!!!!!!
You guys are needed in the music scene in a very bad way. I grew up listening to you guys and you guys were very influential in the way your music made me want to look into things for myself. Because of you guys I try to look at the bigger picture not just in politics or or globalization and some of the other topics you present in your music but in everything. I try to understand the other side of the coin in my dealings with everyone my friends family favorite athletes musicians and so on. I try to make my decision's in life based on information that I have acquired for my self, and not base my life on what others have told me including you. Anyway the reason you guys are needed is because you guys have a large platform to deliver thought provocking music. All of the main stream music is crap it's mindless shit it's dumbing us down in rapid numbers. I am aware there are a lot of artist out there who have thought provocking music but the media has conveniently ignored these artist, artist such as Mos Def, Talieb, Krs One and othersYou guys on the other hand are so big the media couldn't ignore you. You have a huge following and could bridge a gap between generation's by making younger folks aware of political issues that they wont see on fox news your music can encourage them to seek out information for themselves as you did for me and people of my generation. Anyway thank you for making music and touring the way you do I can only imagine how much sacrifice is involved with your life style. To sum it up I guess Im just saying keep pushing forward as artist because the world need's you guys thanks.
ZACK, ME HAS ENSEÑADO EL COLOR DE LA LIBERTAD Y ELRUIDO QUE PUEDEN LLEGAR A HACER LOS GRITOS DE JUSTICIA. OS HE VISTO EN EL ELECTRIC-WEEKEND EN MADRID Y ESPERO VOLVER A VEROS EN ESPAÑA PORQUE HABEIS HECHO UN CONCIERTAZO. ESA ENTRADA DE PRESOS DE GUANTÁNAMO CON BOBMTRACK... INCREIBLEBUSH, JODETE CABRON!VIVA ZAPATA!!ARRIBA KANTABRIA LIBRE!
Zack... I just stumbled upon a great b&w clip of you singing a traditional Mexican song at your aunt's home (tia means aunt, no?). I wouldn't normally attempt to correspond with a celebrity, but I can't sit here and not tell you that you sing beautifully. Your passion for the music is evident and your speaking voice is so soft and warm. Thanks for allowing us to see another side of you. And thank you for returning to Rage. Your lyrics have opened my eyes. When I listen to RATM, I feel compelled to educate myself and DO something about the world we live in.
Man, I'm more than glad to have you guys back! Let your rhymes be the voice of the unheard. Especially in these wicked days of our little world. Peace!
get out that zack actually reads this?? u guys kick ass u rocked at melbourne big day hope u guys stay together love u guys
I'm so anxiuos, less then 48 hours and then I'll see you.seem's like a dream.I don't know if is your funky-core music or just the explosive lirycs that burn me up, the only I know is that you make increase in me tha rage against this F@CK@D machine !!Italy is my country, and you have to know that here in the late months there was a return of (pseudo)fascist-conservative policy,with berlusconi's government. The worste thing is that the italians are becoming fascists and racists too.Say something about it on the stage in Modena (i'll be there to hear you)Sono certo che sul palco spaccherete! In bocca al lupo.
Zack,I really want to thank you for opening my eyes even further than that they allready where.It's strange but I feel a connection with you and I could feel your pain and anger performing @ pinkpop.My parrents tried to take my believes away wich allways have been inside of me and nowadays stronger than ever and still growing.I'm convinced that my main objective in this world is also:BORN TO RAGE AGAINST THEM.And I'm prepared to make a big effort to change this fucked-up world.And I'm convinced that there are enough same-minded people over the world to really make it happen!!!!!We have to organize, stop talking and start the action.!!!!Fear is you only God!!!!Much love from a 23 year old girl from the Netherlands.(sorry for my bad english skills I tried to make it readable but they are only words, and words can't explain my thoughts)
romania awaits you!
Can´t youn play in sweden some time? Like in globen. That would be really cool. You rule. Peace.
Buitenzorg Music Park.....RATMBogor - firstname.lastname@example.org
Pinkpop rocked!!! Nice to see you again after all those years. Still inspiring me.Guantanamo outfit... what a statement!!!Thanks
you guys should play in new zealand. please? im begging!
zack, i would really like to know, what the fuck happened in your childhood? your lyrics are awesome and completely changed the way i think about the world, but did all this shit happen to you?
Argentina is waiting for RATM!!! Pleaseee!!!!!!!!!!!!PLEASE!
I know Joe Cole. I was wondering what decision you made after searching for Jesus for 6 months with him. Ryanryan.email@example.com
I am a product of RATM, literally… I have been listening to you guys and other groups like KRS-ONE, and Dead Prez (maybe a little too much) for many years. I have just finished my coursework for my B.A. in politics and will continue my studies and in a year or so will receive my degree in Music Industry Studies. I also plan to begin Master's studies in Politics after I'm done with music. My master plan is to become active in politics but gain popularity through music.Anyway, I was wondering about your solo work. I really like that C.I.A. song you did with the Last Emperor and KRS-ONE and want to hear more of your solo shit. Is there any other albums you have released (besides Inside Out)?
Last summer when I heard RATM was getting back together, my friends and I drove from Denver to NYC in order to catch you at Rock the Bells. Then last month, I was studying abroad in Europe and was able to catch you play Pinkpop in Landgraaf, Holland. Anyway, I just got a job working Lollapalooza and will see you guys next month. I was hoping that you can do me a favor and add “No Shelter” to that night’s set. It is my favorite Rage song, and I’m even working on a cover of that song on the piano, but it is a little hard trying to rhyme like you and play the piano at the same time.
omg my bro is a rnad
Rage Against The Machine in Denver for DNC 2008?Denver police are stocking up on guns that fire a pepper spray-like substance instead of bullets - a less-lethal weapon used to disperse crowds - in advance of the Democratic National Convention.The department recently ordered 88 Mark IV launchers and projectiles at a cost "in the low six figures," the company that makes the weapons stated in a news release Monday.The request was for delivery in advance of the DNC, according to Louisville- based Security With Advanced Technology Inc.The convention, scheduled for Aug. 25 to 28 at the Pepsi Center, is expected to draw thousands of protesters to sites throughout Denver.The city received a $50 million federal grant for security. A senior adviser to Mayor John Hickenlooper has said the city plans to spend up to half that amount on equipment, with the rest going to pay officers.But the city has refused to disclose how it is spending the money, prompting the American Civil Liberties Union last month to file a civil lawsuit. The court filing alleges the city is violating the Colorado Open Records Act.City officials say releasing the information is "contrary to the public interest" because it could disclose important tactical information, potentially jeopardizing security.A city spokesperson could not be reached for comment Monday. Meanwhile, speculation about what the city is buying has run rampant. Some organizers of protest groups believe police are buying extended-range Tasers and weapons that incapacitate people with high-intensity sound.The Mark IV weapons the city ordered recently fire plastic balls filled with powder that's "like a combination of cayenne pepper and baby powder," the manufacturer said.It can be fired from up to 100 feet away, said Ben Cook, director of Veritas, a subsidiary of Security With Advanced Technology. The balls burst open on impact. While the powder will incapacitate a person like pepper spray, it doesn't cause some of the more severe reactions, Cook said
Hi, I hope you'll read this...yesterday I saw you at Portugal, and it was the best concert of my life...i hope you stay together for more 40 years :P We need you, we need the rage against the machine, the world needs you...Please let the Rage against the machine live longer...I hope, when i have a son, that take him to see you live at portugal again...mean while you coulb come back next year ;)
Racism is part of my everyday life, i put up with it all the time. But it was ratm that taught me that racism is the ugliest kind of ignorance, and i soon learnt not to worry about people with big mouths & small brains. Your music has changed me & woke me up to the hole that america is drowning in. Thank god we have ratm because if we didnt i dont know what wouldve happend by now!zack i love you so much & even tho i dont know you i trust yuu.best wishes,& ill seee yuu at an adelaide big day out when im a bit older hehe.xxxxx
I just can´t stop saying thank you so much for playing in Portugal at Optimus Alive 08. I was just a kid with enought political knowledge to realize how important your movement is and always has been when started listen do ratm.thank you very very much for the concert. Fernando FernandesPortugal
What a great show in Chi-town Zack! It was cool that you saved those people too, it was getting out of hand. It brought back memories of Rockingham in 96. Keep shoutin and spittin piss and vinegar Zack - people are going to get it sooner or later.yours trully,a fellow anthropologist
Zack, I may only be 13 but I love what your doing; I love that your trying to make everything better. My dream is to see a Rage Against the Machine show in person, but you guys never have and probably never will come to Kansas. But I do hope that someday that I may just see you guys perform in person. You guys are my favorite band ever!!!!
i might not be that smart, and probably don't have an exceptionally good heart either, but i'm a listener, and i think that's where both intelligence and compassion start. there's a lot of people like me, listening to what you say...and i know it makes a difference. I might not have really known why i was so crazy about your music when i was 11, but over the past 16 years, it meant so much more to me... just the fact that it's infinitely more than just the most incredible music to lose your shit to. it is no joke that your music is needed.
Hi there i am a huge rage fan and proply the youngest lets just say im under 14. i have been listening to rage for 3 years now!! they are still my favorite band!!!! i know that no one in my grade has even heard of rage aginst the machine but i dont care i still keep listening to rage!!!! ROCK ON!!!!
Can't wait to see you in Denver!
Zach, you've given me so much - allowed to express myself through you. I saw you this year ayt Reading 2008 and you made me cry. I thought i was one thing but you are showing me the truth. I want to fight - I'm young and I'm still learning - but please stay out there, build an army and save the world.Peace
Zack, Tom, Brad & Tim, your music changed my LIFE forever. Your music is the light we need in these cloudy dark times. We need to hear more from you, we rage fans believe in your potential and await a new album soon. WE STILL NEED YOU !And thanks for your concert in Belgium, THANKS for not having forgotten this little country ! THANKS THANKS THANKS THANKS AGAIN AND AGAIN !Kerem from Belgium...
I am bubbling over with enthusiasm after reading the recent news stories and watching the YouTube videos. Somehow, I knew that RAGE would set the stage in the fight against passivity and stand up against tyranny at the place where it all stems from: The RNC.What this group has accomplished is substantial and the movement continues to grow. The first time I ever had an inkling that all was not right came to me through the lyrics of Bombtrack. What began as a slow process of wondering gave birth to a fierce passion for research through anthropology, sociology and U.S. History classes. RAGE led me to the prolific Noam Chomsky, David Barsamian and Free Speech Radio News and much, much more. RAGE has led me to seek the TRUTH. I am forever grateful and am so proud to hear them getting the message out to the people.
im from germany and i saw you at rock am ring this year ... what a night. first serj tankian and later you guys - amazing. it was energizing and even though i do not think everybody understood what zack said at the end, it was inspiring. keep on fighting.we will fight with you.
Zack - I'm from Minneapolis and greatly appreciate all you and the band did in the Twin Cities the past week. You opened some eyes and blew some minds. Phenominal show on Wednesday, and great to see you at the capital as well. I hope we can all unite and show those pigs in gov't that they can't keep taking and taking fro us. RNCFUCKYOU!!! Peace.

What else can be said....Thank you!The music, the message, has inspired me to take a stand for what I believe in and challenge what I feel is injust. From Freedom to Revolver and Down Rodeo to Killing In The Name Of...the message is clear that there is a serious problem with society that can be fixed with little effort from all that want to see it changed. If I had my chance to meet one person it would clearly be you, (Morrelo was a close second) I hope to hear some new music from you guys, I even came up with an album title....AMERICAA Massive European Region Indians Can't Afford!Peace
hi Zack: My name is Zap'em and I am a Zapatista political painter and i would like you and everyone else in Zapatista Territory to view my website. It is zap-em.net. i paint in oil but i do use other media. My objective is to educate the public about the indigenous people of Mexico and the corrupt government. My paintings are not for sale. The website is not about me. It is about the people of my blood who are being tormented. This my way to express my concern. I hope you like the site. Please send comments to Zap'em at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, Zap'em. Viva Zapata!
ZACK, your words reflect the spirit of the people. I am palestinian born and raised in this concrete jungle of nyc. I saw your show back to back i think it was over 11 years ago at roseland and it was the best concert I've ever attended. I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and selflessness. Thank you for exposing mainstream medias agenda. You could have easily sold your soul but no u chose the people of the cash!!!!God Bless ya my brother and if your ever in new york city hit me up. I'll have umi(my mother) put together a fantastic authentic palestinian dish for you and ur crew!!!!!

I went to college and studied music because of I heard "Bulls on Parade" on the radio. I immediately had to know how the solo was done and down the rabbit hole I went. Now I am proud to say that I have very strong beliefs about what my duties are as a citizen of this country, a member of my local community, and as a privileged college graduate. Having an LA band made up of positive role models with different ethnic backgrounds on MTV (of all places) made a huge impact on how I viewed society.
I saw you guys last year at Voodoo Fest and the show was awesome! I was thinking that I'd never get a chance to see ya'll live and I was excited to know ya'll reunited. Please don't ever break up again and don't stop making music. Keep it real and I'll always be a huge fan of RAM no matter what!
