It’s not often Rage Against the Machine is called something pro-government, but according to Skillet’s John Cooper, that’s what they are.

In a recent interview, Cooper said that he has received flack for his anti-vaccination stance while bands like Rage Against the Machine will require them at shows.

“Rage Against the Machine has become the machine,” Cooper said. “It’s crazy. I’m, like, wait a minute — I’m the revolutionary here? I’m the revolutionary and Rage Against the Machine is just ‘government rock’ now.”

Cooper also said, “…the most kickback I have ever received — ever — for my faith has been on my stance on vaccine mandates and mask mandates.”

Do you think Rage Against the Machine has “become” the machine? Do you prefer Skillet’s music over Rage Against the Machine?
