According to guitar-aficionado, and Rage Against the Machine member, Tom Morello, all music is 100% politcal. Even Justin Bieber!
In an interview with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Morello discussed how, “music either supports the status quo or challenges the status quo.” Check out the clip with the Rock & Roll HOF below…
Morello is among the artists who contributed to a new exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics, which Friday at the Cleveland landmark, discusses the crucial connection between music and politics. David Byrne, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider, Gloria Estefan, Jimmy Carter, Gregg Allman and Bono, also took part in the exhibit.
Morello will be busy this year with the Prophets of Rage formation, with members of RATM, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill coming together to create a can’t-miss experience.
