What’s going on my fellow rock n’ rollers. Don’t forget to hit the bell notification icon to be notified every time i put out a new video on my channel. I want to thank one of my subscribers for recommending this story as i hadn’t previously heard it. Back in the early 90’s two bands who seemed to shake things up were Rage Against the Machine and Suicidal Tendencies. They even toured together in the 90’s and more recently as well, but something set Suicidal Tendencies vocalist Mike Muir off to the point that he not only slammed Rage Against The Machine in the press, but also wrote a diss track What happened? Stay tuned to find out!

Back in 1992 both Rage Against the Machine and the Suicidal Tendencies toured in Europe together. First Rage opened for Mike Muir’s band in late 1992 and then a year later Rage headlined their own shows in which both of Mike Muir’s bands suicidal tendencies and infectious grooves opened for them.

There seemed to be a few things that set Mike Muir off against Rage. It seemed to mostly stem from an interview that Rage against the machine guitarist Tom Morello gave disparaging the Suicidal Tendenceis referring to them as an “old” band. The other was a stunt the band pulled against the parents resource music council or PMRC protesting censorship in 1993 during the lollapalooza tour. The band stood naked on stage for 15 minutes to protest the PMRC who wanted to censor music and place advisory stickers on albums. Muir, upset at Morello’s comments and what he saw as hypocrisy used two methods to slam Rage’s actions. One involved going to the press to slam the band when he gave an interview with Spin Magazine in 1993 saying “There’s a fine line between making a political statement and trying to add to your financial is it in every paper in the country (referring to the PMRC protest). Because we sent a press release out. And who the f fed with you? Oh The PMRC They don’t even exist in the real world anymore.

A year later Muir would use his band Infectious Grooves as an avenue to slam Rage once again.
Muir would pen a diss track for the group’s 1994 album Groove Family Cyco, which was released on April Fools Day. It featured the song “Do What I Tell Ya,” which took its inspiration from the Rage against the machine’s song killing in the name. The song doesn’t specifically call out rage a or it’s band members by name, but it leaves little to the imagination. The song would feature the lyrics

Now you’re making your political statement
Or are you trying to add to you financial statement
And let’s not forget evil corporations
Then why is Sony the sponsor of your presentation?
Muir would speak to the LA times in 1994 ahead of the album’s release clarifying the message of the song saying
“Here’s a band talking about how evil corporations are (referring to Rage Against the Machine), and they’re Fel see this feud? Well the LA Times reached out to Sony’s Epic Records with the compOany’s West Coast President putting out a statement saying
“I believe in peace, anan d understanding as much as the next guy, but I’m not writing the lyrics. I don’t think there are any Sony problems with this, and we don’t censor our artists.”
"Groove Family Cyco" did not receive the same commercial success as the previous two albums
For their part Rage never really addressed the feud. Muir as recently as 2008 was still slamming the band saying to. the Cleveland Scene
I just think [RAGE] said something about us — Tom [Morello, the RAGE guitarist], you know? So I said what I thought. I think a lot of times, little nerdy kids get an audience, and they like the fact that they can say things, and they think people really care. And to me, that's just totally fake. Like, dude, are they really a groundbreaking political band if Sony's throwing all kinds of money at it?of
in 2010, ST opened for Rage in South America as. Dean Pleasants, ST guitarist,would reveal in an interview , “Rage’s manager was like, ‘Well, I don’t know if they want you guys to come,’ but he asked them and it had been long forgotten. And the Brazilian people said they wanted Suicidal to come, so we went. We got there and saw Tom, and Zack, and said hi and everything was cool.”
