Tom Morello is 49 years old today. Well done, Tom! Please stop playing as The Nightwatchman and get back together with Zack and the boys to make a new Rage Against The Machine album before it’s too late, yeah?
Joking aside, since it is Tom’s birthday, we figured we ought to revisit his band’s most high-profile UK success – the time that an internet campaign got their breakthrough hit, ‘Killing In The Name’, to the UK Christmas Number 1 spot in the UK singles chart. And all because of the general public’s desire to piss off Simon Cowell.
