Anytime RATM gets together is a good day. And if Morello and STEVE EARLE are teaming up for a show. . . sweetness.

Maybe they will tell the Republicians what they think about them that would be cool. Hope RATM stays together put out some new stuff and tour.

RATM wannabe communists who can suck my balls. How rebellious of them to play during the RNC, take that republicans. Like the Dems are any less elitist than the Republicans. Hopefully their next album is better than Renegades of sh**.
