Fury against the machine“disgusted” by current developments, showed their tremendous support for Reproductive Rights Friday (June 24). That day, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Americans’ constitutional right to abortion, which was upheld for the past half century.
The court had been in place since Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, almost two decades before Zack de la Rocha and Tom Morello-leaded rap rockers formed in Los Angeles in 1991. The band released their classic debut, Fury against the machine,, the following year.
On Friday there were many rock and metal artists responded to the news of the controversial decision representing the Supreme Court’s current super-majority of conservative judges.
Rage put their money where their mouth is. They donate $ 475.00 from pre-sale tickets from theirs tour kickoff shows next month in East Troy, Wisconsin and Chicago to reproductive rights organizations in those states.
We are disgusted by the abolition of Roe V. Wade and the devastating impact it will have on tens of thousands of people. More than half of the country (26 states) is likely to ban or severely restrict abortion very soon, if not immediately, which will have a disproportionate impact on the poor, working class and undocumented BIPOC communities.
To date, our fans have raised $ 475,000.00 from the sale of our Alpine Valley and United Center charity tickets. We donate this money to reproductive rights organizations in Wisconsin and Illinois.
Like the many women who have organized sophisticated resistance railroads to challenge these attacks on our collective reproductive freedom, we must continue to resist.

20 artists who told politicians to stop using their music
Politicians consistently use songs by bands without their permission, and these artists had enough of it.
