just think of all those kids out there, now rocking to RATM, rather than Coldplay or Busted, weve introduced a new generation to music , where the
words have meaning and cant be ignored.
the posters coming on and making negative remarks about those who bought the single are annoying. I was well aware of Simon Cowells connections to
Sony and RATM. That wasn't the point.
If we hadn't bought the track we wouldn't have just raised 66,000 pounds for the homeless at Christmas. That's surely a good enough reason in
very well said woodwardjnr 66,000 for the homeless would the x factor winner do that or throw a free gig and educate them on all the injustice in the
world, i don't think so, but im of the belife that if you don't know what the meaning and intent is in there songs you never will or too young to
like i was when i first started listening to them about 16 years ago,
to me it was all about the bad boy image back thenno idea of the meening of it all,
if kids/teens take to this after all this hype we should teach them what the meaning's behind there songs are,
we never had older wiser people to point it out while we were growing up it wasent there sort of music, we are wiser now and if the youth take to it
because of all the swearing and rebeliousnes we should point out the reasons for all that.. there more likely to understand the meaning's behind
there songs earlyer on than to work it out for themselves 10 years later.
rage against the machine is an exellent band to teach about greed, poverty, injustice, and morality (morality despite the swearing that just make
people sit up and listen).
i think the us should have the same or similar campaing.
