I’m not the biggest fan of Tom’s new project Street Sweeper Social Club, but I am a fan of Tom Morello. I interviewed him maybe ten times while I was at MTV News, and he was a fucking righteous dude…always down to talk and help me out with a quote or two.
I also happen to like M.I.A. It’s one of those non-metal guilty pleasures, I suppose. Maybe some residual from the MTV days, because her album Kala dropped during my tenure there, to much critical acclaim. After the jump, there’s a video of Tom Morello covering M.I.A.’s infectious “Paper Planes,” and it’s fucking rad. No, it’s not the most metal thing you’re going to watch in your lifetime, but its fucking cool nonetheless. I am trying to expand your musical horizons, fuckers. This cover appears on the band’s new The Ghetto Blaster EP. Phat.
