Rage Against the Machine Try to Rock the RNC

Rage Against the Machine was set to perform at a secret show late Tuesday afternoon on the lawn of the Minnesota State Capitol at 6:30 p.m., but police suddenly shut the concert down, despite the fact that the festival had a legal permit until 7 p.m.

When the crowd began to chant “F*ck you I won’t do what you tell me” and failed to start the show, frontman Zack de la Rocha and guitarist Tom Morello performed an a cappella version of “Bulls on Parade,” handing a megaphone back and forth between them for the lyrics and mouth music. Morello made the classic “bow-wow-wow-wakka-chikkas” with his voice. Solid.

The Band led the Rage crowd on a march towards the heavily guarded Xcel Center and the Republican National Convention. The roughly 2,000 to 3,000 marchers met up with another group of poverty protesters and they reportedly got as far as the main barriers in front of the Xcel Center. About 200 people allegedly refused to disperse from an intersection and police fired tear gas at the protesters.

Here’s the video of the a cappella performance…
