Paul Ryan’s favorite band doesn’t love him back

Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick was a shot in the arm for the GOP presidential candidate’s campaign.
Paul Ryan is young, and between his famed adherence to the P90X workout regimen, his skills as a sportsman and his beautiful young family, Ryan’s dose of relatability was just what the Conservative wing of the GOP ordered.
And (hello, populism!) Paul Ryan loves Rage Against the Machine.
But Rage Against the Machine doesn’t love Paul Ryan back.
In a sharply-worded editorial posted by Rolling Stone, Rage guitarist Tom Morello calls Ryan’s admiration “amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades.”
Labeling Ryan as “clueless,” Morello says the potential veep’s stances are the complete opposite of his band’s.
“Ryan claims that he likes Rage’s sound, but not the lyrics,” Morello writes. “Well I don’t care for Paul Ryan’s sound or his lyrics.”Article Source
