Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello has reacted to Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters, Jack White, himself, and other rock artists being snubbed from Billboard’s new songs about the greatest and most popular 2010’s rock songs. Imagine Dragons and Twenty One Pilots take up 6 spots on Billboard’s top 10 rock songs of the 2010’s. Rage Against The Machine revealed a big name is joining the reunion train in 2020 a few days ago.
Tom Morello retweeted a fan named Jack who said, “WTF is this? Where’s Royal Blood? Highly Suspect? Foo Fighters? Fever 333? Tom Morello? Jack White? Rival Sons? I’m pretty sure Tool falls under the rock banner, where’s literally any track from Fear Inoculum? Where the fuck are the actual rock bands?”
A fan named Trenton responded, “Struts? Arctic Monkeys? Killers? Highly Suspect? Black Keys? BVB? Foo Fighters? Cage the Elephant? Ghost?
This isnt 2019 radio we’re talking about here. This is the ENTIRE decade. Fire whoever made this list. Disgusting. Up next Taylor Swift as 3rd best rap song of the decade?”
Megan Thee Parker said, “According to the @RecordingAcad, Radioactive is the only Rock song on this list also, how on Earth did Believer outperform Radioactive in here when the latter stayed 2 years on the Hot 100? Nevermind, Rock died in 2016. Radioactive still had competition in the Rock charts, whereas Believer had no competition due to changes caused by the streaming era, similarly to how Meant To Be ruled the Country charts for months.”
John Pratt concluded, “None of those besides the Lumineers and Walk The Moon are even really alt though. Imagine Dragons is just pop and I’d argue the same about Twenty One Pilots these days too.” Rage Against The Machine unloaded on a terrible money offer a few days ago.
WTF is this? Where's Royal Blood? Highly Suspect? Foo Fighters? Fever 333? Tom Morello? Jack White? Rival Sons? I'm pretty sure Tool falls under the rock banner, where's literally any track from Fear Inoculum? Where the fuck are the actual rock bands? https://t.co/ooEyCArsJc pic.twitter.com/vpCvWQG6TE
