By now you may have heard that our new Veep pick is a fan of grunge, Led Zep, Beethoven (egad) and very much Rage Against the Machine. Of course, Rage was prime lefty agitators and Tom Morello has gone on to be Mr. Occupy as the Night Watchman. The Atlantic has a lengthy and fun take, also looking at some of his other faves, including The Dead and Metallica. All of this gives us a chance to post again one of my favorite videos, featuring some Morello shredding, plus Springsteen, Steinbeck, Woody Guthrie--all of them certain to drive Ryan (even more) batty if he ever truly absorbed them.
