Nobody said anything about using the system to bring it down or change it. If you listen to their music, you would know that their message was far more political than anti-consumerist or anti-recording industry. In effect, RATM really never cared about the recording industry or its capitalistic nature all that much, which is why Audioslave was still part of it. They had a few anti-capitalism and anti-consumerist songs but only within the context of abuse and Orwellian control, nothing that could be genuinely perceived as something opposing capitalism in general. I’m fairly sure you calling it "lies" after literally two decades worth of events showing that RATM have always stuck with their original message and your complete ignorance about what their message is only underscores how much of an idiot you’re being. If you want to see what a band that truly stands against the recording industry, look up Nine Inch Nails. Trent Reznor hates the recording industry far more than RATM ever did and got out of there as fast as he could once he learned how bad it really was. As for "selling out", consult Tool’s Hooker with a Penis (a band that both RATM and Nine Inch Nails were good friends with). It’s like that song was made for you.
