This year seems like a tough time for Tom Morello: Half-brained reality TV stars masquerade as legitimate politicians in the headlines every day, and unbelievable crimes are being committed against civilians around the globe on an accelerating basis—and the lead singer of your ultra-rocking ’90s protest-rock band won’t tour with you. Having recruited Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Public Enemy’s Chuck D—from whose 1988 song Prophets of Rage take their name—to fill in for Zack de la Rocha, Morello and the remaining members of Rage Against the Machine have been performing Rage songs, in addition to Cypress Hill and PE classics on tour. The new group’s intent, as Morello told Rolling Stone, “to confront this mountain of election year bullshit,” is as admirable as ever, but without de la Rocha, the band is a bit like a snake without its teeth.
