Tom Morello’s new band, Street Sweeper Social Club, made their TV debut last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and performed the Rage Against The Machine-esque “100 Little Curses.” And an extremely righteous racket they unleashed as rapper Boots Riley did indeed rage against the rich and their caviar-gobbling, Ferrari-driving, white-stuff-snorting ways. The enthusiastic delivery of the message, combined with Morello’s shredding and Riley’s fabulous sculpted sideburns, totally won me over.
One criticism? I’m not counting 100 curses in the song, Tom. There’s 30 at most, and that’s being generous. Come on, dude, this is exactly the kind of so-called “liberal lie” Bill O’Reilly likes to nail people on.
Anyway, check out the clip below and tell us what you think. Do you agree with the band’s anti-rich sentiments? And, if you are super rich, get your butler to drop us a line.
