Of course, Twitter users were quick to respond – both positively and negatively – to this message, with @RATM sharing one particularly amusing post by @CharlTaylorPage (which has been retweeted 11,000 times at the time of writing): "Dying because Rage Against the Machine posted a message in support of Palestine and people are telling them to stay out of politics and calling them woke. WHAT DID YOU THINK THE MACHINE WAS a fucking washer dryer??"
Other fans highlighted just how unsurprising Rage's statement was. "Rage Against the Machine wrote in support of Palestine?!?" commented @NojTheCynic. "Geez, what's next? Are the Red Hot Chili Peppers going to come out and say they're from California?"
"[Your] annual reminder that Rage Against the Machine are a political band," @kelly_welles said. "The clue is in the name so I probably wouldn't be shocked if they make political statements."
