Tom Morello, the group’s guitarist, did not hide his feelings about Ryan’s declared liking for the openly leftist band in a Rolling Stone editorial:
“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…… I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta ‘rage’ in him. A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he’s not raging against is the privileged elite he’s grovelling in front of for campaign contributions.”
