VIRAL: Twitter User Complains That Rage Against The Machine Is Political

Rage Against The Machine is one of the most fiercely political bands ever - but at least one Twitter user never seemed to notice before now.

On Tuesday, the user tweeted at guitarist Tom Morello that he "used to be a fan until your political opinions came out" and that "the last thing I want to hear is political BS when I'm listening to music". As you might imagine, the guy got dragged to the moon and back. 

One user responded: "What 'Machine' did you think he was raging against? The dishwasher?"  Even Morello got in on the fun, responding "What music of mine were you a fan of that DIDN'T contain 'political BS'? I need to know so I can delete it from the catalog".

Do you like when bands get political, or is music a way to escape from the 'real' world? Is it possible the Twitter user was just trolling?
