Prophets Of Rage guitarist Tom Morello says he put his metal records to one side after hearing London Calling. It was at a time that I was becoming politically aware, and here was a band who made me feel that I wasn ’ t alone ; it was a band that told the truth – unlike my president, unlike the people on the national news, unlike my teacher – and I thought: ‘ I ’m in’. I wrote my first political song immediately in the aftermath of listening to London Calling .

Tom morello looks like tons of dudes imo so he's pretty easy to dismiss because he doesn't have That wasn ' t even a huge blast or anything, he's not dead, and could definitely make a comeback! Tom Morello is credited as “bodyguard” at the end of the movie, leading me to believe he was also in

The Rage Against The Machine guitarist has opened up on the impact the punk band's iconic album 'London Calling' had on him, and helped him expand his tastes beyond heavy metal.

He told Classic Rock magazine: "I devoured that record. The conviction with which the band played and with which Joe Strummer sang were indescribable.

"It was at a time that I was becoming politically aware, and here was a band who made me feel that I wasn't alone.

"It was a band that told the truth, unlike my president, unlike the people on the national news, unlike my teacher, and I thought: 'I'm in.' "

I never even saw you speak to Camille for one minute.’ And I said, ‘Exactly, but I know exactly what they’re doing.

Of the album, Morello said: “ Making this album was a life raft during a troubled time. Creating a global conspiracy of rock’n’roll pen pals of incredible and diverse talents really kept me going and helped me push myself as an artist and guitarist. The album, as testified by Morello , is a clear byproduct of very dark and challenging pandemic days. Recording guitars on his phone, the album was made both creatively and technically from his home studio in Los Angeles, while sharing files with collaborators around the globe.

Driving to Texas. Tom Morello . Track 4 on. [Chorus] Believe, believe what I say I 'm driving to Texas And now isn' t the time You'll break this transfixion. [Verse 2] I 'm in a car, corridor of endless trees Drilling a hole Memories escaping me I was alive, I drank the sunlight just like you I changed my statе to replicate the blacknеss of the blood you drew.

The 57-year-old musician also explained how there was more to the 'I Fought The Law' rockers than just being a "punk band".

He added: "The Clash were more than a punk band. They were much more musically adventurous.

"And 'London Calling' was really the record where they incorporated music from around the world and every song sounded like The Clash.

"I've played the song 'London Calling' in countless cover bands throughout the years. I wasn't exactly sure what Joe Strummer was going on about, but it felt apocalyptic and I knew that he was right."

And Morello praised Strummer's sense of humour, adding that discovering The Clash made him feel like he "didn't have to settle" with his musical tastes.

He said: "The subtlety and the humour in Joe's lyrics is sometimes overlooked.

"I couldn't believe that there was a band for me. Up until that point I was settling, and when I discovered 'London Calling' I didn't have to settle anymore."
