Paul Ryan Rage Against The Machine Stupid
Paul Ryan has been criticized by members of Rage Against the Machine.

In October, Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello spoke out against Paul Ryan, calling him a "jackass" after already pegging him as "the embodiment of the machine our music rages against." Now, another band member is joining the Paul Ryan-bashing club.

"Clearly [Paul's] not smart to be admitting that [he likes Rage]," Bassist Tim Commerford said in an interview with TMZ. "It seems like it's stupid for him to even bring it up, so he's obviously not that smart of a guy."

The Rage Against the Machine conflict with Paul Ryan started when the politician listed the liberal rock band as one of his favorite artists. Morello took to Rolling Stone's website, writing an op-ed in response. He said that Ryan had "rage" but specifies that it is "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."

The National also recently spoke out against the GOP ticket after an Ohio ad for Mitt Romney featured one of their songs. "When we found out that allies of Mitt Romney used our music in a campaign ad without our permission we were irritated but not surprised," The National said in the statement. "It's actually a perfect illustration of his worldview. In every way, Mitt Romney thinks he can play by his own set of rules."
