Tom Morello Rocks Occupy Wall Street Anniversary
Tom Morello has performed at the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street alongside thousands of protesters. The Rage Against The Machine guitarist performed as his alter-ego The Nightwatchmen with a set that included an acoustic version of "Sleep Now In The Fire" and Bruce Springsteen's "The Ghost Of Tom Joad". Other artists who performed at the event include Das Racist's Kool A.D., the Dead Kennedys' Jello Biafra and Rebel Diaz. Morello says the day-to-day occupation of Wall Street might be over, but it lives on in spirit: "The people who were in the streets their ideas haven't gone away," he told Rolling Stone. "The mistrust and resentment towards the status quo hasn't gone away. How it manifests itself in the months and years to come will determine the ultimate success or failure of the movement." He went on to slam Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's running mate, for saying Rage Against The Machine were his favorite band. "Paul Ryan's love of Rage Against The Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades," Morello said. "Charles Manson loved The Beatles but didn't understand them. Governor Chris Christie loves Bruce Springsteen but doesn't understand him. And Paul Ryan is clueless about his favorite band, Rage Against The Machine." Watch Tom Morello perform alongside the Occupy protesters here:
