All That Remains Frontman Rips Tom Morello: 'He's Not Not Raging Against Machine, He’s Jumping Into Machine's Pocket'
Phil Labonte of All That Remains has been speaking with Loudwire about the current state of music and politics. As the singer notes, he doesn't believe that Tom Morello is really raging against the machine. When asked why he was wearing an anti-Obama shirt, the singer responded with the following: "I specifically wore this shirt because I knew I was coming to New York. In fact the girls sitting down there gave me a look when I was coming to meet you and were like, 'Look at his shirt' and I'm like, 'Yeah, look at my shirt.' "Nobody's f--king punk rock anymore, I was never a punk rock guy but punk rock is supposed to be against the machine, against the establishment. I was talking crap about Tom Morello because how can you be Rage Against the Machine and then vote for someone that's in the party that controls both the House and the Senate. So you're against the machine but you're voting for the candidate that is supported by both the House of Representatives and the Senate. That's not raging against machine, that's jumping into the machine's pocket, that's lining right up behind the machine. "Political correctness has permeated the society that we live in to the point where – it used to be okay to be crap, you're free to be crappy. The freedom of speech doesn't exist so you can say, 'I hate the New York Jets' or 'I love the New England Patriots' or whatever, it's so that you can say really controversial s--t."
