    rage against the machine accapella at the rnc convention in minnesnota 

    apparently the band was denied access to the Ripple Effect stage (yes to Matisyahu, no Rage – that doesnt sound kosher), so they picked up a megaphone and the worlds greatest guitarist mouthed his famous riff and zach and the crowd sang Bulls on Parade:

    Come wit it now!
    Come wit it now!
    The microphone explodes, shattering the molds
    Ya either drop tha hits like de la O or get tha f off tha commode
    Wit tha sure shot, sure ta make tha bodies drop
    Drop an don’t copy yo, don’t call this a co-opt
    Terror rains drenchin’, quenchin’ tha thirst of tha power dons
    That five sided fist-a-gon
    Tha rotten sore on tha face of mother earth gets bigger
    Tha triggers cold now empty ya purse

    they rally round tha family! With a pocket full of shells
    They rally round tha family! With a pocket full of shells
    They rally round tha family! With a pocket full of shells
    They rally round tha family! With a pocket full of shells

    Weapons not food, not homes, not shoes
    Not need, just feed the war cannibal animal
    I walk tha corner to tha rubble that used to be a library
    Linin’ to the mind cemetery now
    What we don’t know keeps tha contracts alive an movin’
    They don’t gotta burn tha books they just remove ’em
    While arms warehouses fill as quick as tha cells
    Rally round tha family, pockets full of shells
