Audioslave is undoubtedly a straight-ahead uncompromising loud rock band, but it’s devoid of the often political rap rants that characterized much of Rage Against the Machine’s music. “Audioslave is not a band about politics,” Tom Morello clarified to Australia’s Beat magazine. “In some ways Rage was clearly very inspirational to people politically but often the band’s personal politics got in the way, so I would prefer to keep my political activism as a separate issue. Now I can do that in a pure way and have it not muddied by rock waters and with this band I can rock loud and unapologetically in that arena.” Beat.com.au has since removed the article.
