Rage Against The Machine

Bangers Are Always Gonna Bang

Even If Their Brains Bleed

EXCLUSIVE

070714_tim_commerford_launch_v3If you bang your head to rock music so hard that your skull fills with blood and doctors have to DRILL HOLES in it to save your life -- Rage Against The Machine's Tim Commerford not only has your back ... he says keep rocking!

We asked the Rage bassist about a German Motorhead fan who suffered a brain bleed -- which his doctors partially blamed on years of excessive headbanging -- and Tim doesn't think the horrific news will scare true headbanging fans. 

In fact, he says he's felt the same pain, telling us ... "Banger neck, yeah. Every time we played I got banger neck."

Of course, Tim never had to have HOLES DRILLED IN HIS HEAD ... like the Motorhead fan -- but watch him explain why that danger is just part of the show.

Hardcore.

I like RATM, but I wouldn't consider them metal. It's not headbangin music.

Is this clown getting out of a $75G Range Rover? Isn't RAM supposed to be anti-capitalist, anti-materialist? Does the hypocrisy in the entertainment industry ever end? Answer: No...it's a bottomless pit.

Not sure what was worse about RATM; the noise or the Communism they pushed.

Communism obviously.
