'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.

RATM - as awesome as ever! The haters are people who shouldn't have been listening anyway. The lyrical content does not apply to you. Period!

They are awesome and totally nice guys who walk the walk. They deserve their success. Come back soon guys! Northeast L.A. in the house!

Guess what? If the radio show was that concerned about RAGE not unleashing the F-bomb during "Killing in the Name", maybe they would have been better off asking them to play a different song!? I say the blame lies in the talk show/host! You can't take the best part out of the song!
