How depressingly ironic is that?
Not much else to say, really, is there?

FIST IN THE AIR IN THE LAND OF DEMOCRACY
lost all respect for them now. remember The Clash? they actually walked the talk, they deliberately took a financial hit to make sure their records and gigs were affordable to their fans. VFM all the way. RATM are a bunch of hypocrite charlatans.
we're the underdogs, man.

rage against the machine can fuck right off, the hypocritical motherfucking cunts
it'd be poetic
Was Killing in the name of #1 in Ireland at Christmas?
i know it's a point which has been laboured quite extensively, but a band claiming to be some kind of ethical "people's band" charging that much for a gig really, really stinks.
Neil Young cost me something similar, Tom Waits would have cost me more.
You realise they are/were(?) on a major label, yeah? They're not exactly Fugazi.
do you not see any hypocrisy in a band which have always quite staunchly advocated good charities/causes and spoken out about worldwide injustices (many of which stem from money) baically being cash whores?
My point is it's hardly like they've suddenly gone from putting on DIY gigs and giving away all their albums free to fleecing Irish teenagers.
it's a continuous source of frustration for me. i know it's nothing new, but it never fails to leave a bitter taste in my mouth whenever it rears its head.
to do with the promoters than the band, gigs in Ireland are infamously expensive.
why don't they put the gig on themselves? i'm sure they can afford the initial outlay and i'm sure they'd still make a healthy profit without having to charge as much.
i was actually quite proud of RATM keeping their word and doing a free gig, but it seems like they're offsetting the cost against the irish gig
