Tom Morello has been a part of the resistance for years and his band embodies that spirit whole heartedly. He is extremely active in exploited communities and has never been shy to call people out (Also he’s a great guitarist). https://t.co/Rk9hKivSxF

I see that Tom Morello is getting political now. I never understand why stars who build their career on fun entertainment, suddenly feel the need to get all political. Songs like Killing in the Name of were great without the need to throw politics into it
