    jd_rOcCa...its a drop in the ocean...one link about a genre of music you`re not interest in, and you kick up a fuss.

    Just leave it...the link title is enough to know wheteher you should watch it or not. But being that close minded isn`t healthy...there`s nothing wrong with listening to a mixture every now and then, you know?

    there isnt a link on any site, how is it possible to make a site with links on that some will like more than others, and vice versa, it isnt.

    I hope they had moshpits.

    If you`re there then you don`t hear that music anyway. You become half deaf after the first notes that they play, and the only thing that becomes enjoyable when that occurs is the bass, headbanging and the pits.

    I`m not gonna take the time to read these comments so i`m sorry if its been said. Zack de la Rocha looks better with dreads. Tom Morello kicks ass, and even though RATM was and now is a great band.. Audioslave was better.

    Live sound - Fair at best
    Stage performance - Poor
    Crowd - Noticeably dormant

    Down here in new orleans, the average local show in the quarter would blow that away. And if thats what one qualifies as impressive... well, nuff said.

    I like RATM because they actually have meaning in their song`s, unlike many bands now. I also like Soundgarden (Pretty Noose is my favorite song) and Audioslave, even though they`re a bit slower, but still good.

    What was so impressive about that?

    If you want to see a real band, check out UnderØath.
    Their new Survive Kaleidescope DVD is incredible.

    I might have been a bit more impressed by RAM if the quality was better, but im not a fan of their music anyways.

    Their performance was so boring.


    "ARGG! All you haters out there are bored with RATM because being aware of whats going on in this world scares you! So you purposefully and immediately turn your back and look away"

    WTF!? It`s not like you could make out what he was saying to hear what ever message he had. Just becasue they may have been singing about something important doesn`t automatically mean it a great song or band.

    Wow, what a terrible reason to enjoy a band, and really, that`s only if you agree with this band`s world view. If William Hung started singing about finding a cure for cancer, hey, I`m all for curing cancer, but it doesn`t make him a talented singer.

    As for their world view:
