Rage Against The Machine Mistakenly Lists Book Shop As Tour Venue, Twitter Hilarity Ensues

'90s alt rockers Rage Against The Machine just announced their European tour, and the London Review Bookshop was extremely surprised to find that the band was slated to play their modest store on August 14th. While some business might simply inform the tour managers of the error, this particular bookstore decided to roll with the hilarity on Twitter. And we're extremely glad they did. The whole debacle turned into a delightful thread filled with book puns, Rage Against the Machine references, and some serious impressive wit on the part of whomever runs the account. We've included the highlights in this gallery, but you can see more of the bookish antics right here on the thread. 

And for you English Rage fans that are worried about going to a show at a prim and proper book shop, fear not: the correct venue is Review Bookshop in Peckham.  Which we hope has planned for the rockers' set.

Dude's Angry Tweet About Rage Against The Machine Is Getting Gloriously Ripped To Shreds

It's 2018 - do you know where your politically charged 90s rap metal is? We can tell you that the politically-inclined group Rage Against the Machine has most recently been spotted in a surprisingly viral tweet from last week. Canadian Twitter user (and self-proclaimed political Youtuber) @ScotchOikos had a lot to say about the band after revisiting their music. 

 "Listening to Rage Against The Machine for the first time in a while. What dreadful lyrics: anti-cop, racist against whites, total rejection of civility, communist, all around an aggressive embodiment of victimhood culture."

The tweet quickly garnered attention from many users, musing that @ScotchOikos had clearly missed the band's point. Exactly what does he expect a group called Rage Against The Machine to sound like? The tweets began flooding in, with jokers penning ironically polite riffs on the band's name and catalogue, creating a seriously epic and witty thread. We've included some choice excerpts, but you can take in the thread in its entire gruesome glory here.

Funny tweet about rage against the machine, @scotchoikos
