You're right, they're not Rage, and they're not trying to be. They're Audioslave now. Rage is dead, get over it, and enjoy Audioslave cuz teh yare still a very tight band. If I hear people dissingthem cuz they arent as good as Rage, I think its ridiculous! I dont hear people dissing Sublime, or Pennywise, or any other band beacause they dont sound like Rage does.
I was a little scepticle of Cornell's ability to pull somethying liek this off, but you have to come in with a 'no expectation' view and just groove to the sound.
That is all.
I write messages on money.
It's my own form of social protest.
A letter printed on paper that no one will destroy, passed indiscriminately across race, class and gender lines, and written in the blood that keeps the beast alive.
A quiet little hijacking on the way to the check-out counter.
And a federal crime.
I hope that someone will find my message one day when they really need it, like I do.
'You are not a slave'
