Following All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte's recent accusations of Tom Morello being a hypocrite, Rage Against the Machine axeman responded via Twitter, cooling down the situation and giving a brief explanation. "Phil is talented but he mistakes me for an Obama supporter. Obama too right wing for me, Phil. Repubs/dems both no bueno," Morello posted. Labonte was quick to react, just saying, "Well we can agree on that." As previously reported, the singer gave Morello a bashing while discussing punk rock attitude with Loudwire, branding rock spirit mellowed out. "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," he kicked off. "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," Phil continued. "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."
