Let's file this one under obvious headline is obvious.

Rage Against the Machine guitarist no fan of Paul Ryan

You don't say.


I guess there is more to the story. It turns out that Paul Ryan's favorite band is Rage Against the Machine. Which is pretty funny. So Tom Morello of Rage wrote an op-ed for Rolling Stone.

Paul Ryan's love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades. Charles Manson loved the Beatles but didn't understand them. Governor Chris Christie loves Bruce Springsteen but doesn't understand him. And Paul Ryan is clueless about his favorite band, Rage Against the Machine.

Personally, I bet he likes their cover of Pistol Grip Pump. I bet the chorus runs through his head when he thinks about lowering the top tax rates.
