'Rage' to Radio Show: Eff Your 'No Eff' Rule

12/17/2009 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rage Against the Machine incited mass panic at a British radio show this morning -- when the lead singer unleashed a string of f-bombs during a live on-air performance.

Rage Against the machine -- click to hear

It all went down on UK's Radio Five Live's Breakfast Show during a performance of "Killing in the Name" -- after the band was asked to cut the curse words from the song. According to the DJ, the band obliged before the performance -- but apparently had a change of heart once they went on the air.

After a series of f-bombs, a female DJ can be heard scrambling to cut the audio -- saying, "Get rid of it!" Obviously, Rage was not allowed back on the air.

Carl,

It's probably far too late for you to see my response, but I'll try anyway. I don't get where you're coming from, saying that one view is better than another. I didn't assert that, nor did I attempt to. Your view is yours and I don't challenge it. However, I am a supporter of the Tea Parties, and I am a libertarian. I'm also a member of Ron Paul's Revolution, which has nothing to do with Fox News at all. Fox News tends to support neocons, and the tea parties are against what neocons want (more power for govt, less for citizens). For you to assert that the "tea baggers" (which is a gross and unfair insult) are run by Fox News is ignorant and just plain mean. Don't associate ME with them! And just because there are a few neocons in the group doesn't ruin the bunch.

K,

Morons like Carl are clueless. They look up to uneducated entertainers and vee-jays on MTV to tell them what to think and believe. What Carl doesn't understand is, A., Socialism is one of the first steps to full-blown Communism. Any honest historian who is worth his salt will tell you Hitler was a Socialist and his plan for Germany was to be under Socialist rule. B.; Also what Carl doesn't understand is that Socialism only works in very small environments with a controlled population. Unlike the kooks here in this country that want us to have open borders, any Socialist country Carl would point to as an example, have some of the most stringent illegal immigration laws in the world. They throw your a$$ out if you're not a citizen. Aside from that, they are very picky on who they allow to become a citizen. And if you use common sense, you should know there is no way you can properly dispense money, services, etc, in an environment with a fluid population. So quacks like Carl need to decide, do they want to take care of everybody that makes it into this country, legal or not, or to be the Hilter dictator type that they pattern their world view after? Socialism has been a complete failure in every country in the world with a large population. It's a fact.

If Rage was honest and truly believed their own lyrics then they'd give up all their money and give it to the little guys.

See, when you're an idiotic liberal and you spew this type of anti-capitalist nonsense you get held hostage by your own words.

Just another example of how insanely dishonest and hypocritical liberals truly are

They are the very machine they cry about in their own dumbass songs

Ha!!

Just like most on here, I was all down with their cause while I was a dumbass kid and didn't know any better. Now when you actually listen to their lyrics you have to ask yourself what you were ever thinking to to be a fan of such idiotic, anti-American, anti-Capitalist hypocrites.

They have become the very thing they supposedly hate. Unreal

WTF    

HA! Seriously, they should do some research on this band. Really, you'd think a band called, "Rage Against the Machine," you'd doubt that they would censor themselves for the show. Anyways, the producers' remarks just help sell the song again and again. Go UK.

I guess some people just don't like bending over and letting corporations ram their propaganda and other form of lies up their bodies. But it's only fair that these people who like that kind of loving have the rights to do so. I'll get you some ointment for that sore.

WTF    

The funny thing is that some people think that the expletives were intentional to disrupt something, but it was their 17 years ago. What do you people want? You want them to change the original lyrics to fit your feelings?

Funny when people point out obvious lies and hypocrisies of liberals you are labeled a Republican. Why can't they be just honest people? Rage is the very Capitalism they claim to hate. Just like Michael Moore. Without Capitalism, you would have never heard of either of them.

liberals aren't very bright at all. They get offended when people ask why they are getting wealthy when they claim to hate money. Morons
