Rage Against the Machine have reportedly sent a cease and desist letter to Nigel Farage

Know Your Enemy.

After hearing that Nigel Farage was set to name his new podcast 'Farage Against the Machine' we really hope that the members of Rage Against the Machine said: "What you say, what you say, what you say, what? I'm calm like a bomb!"

In an act of D, the E, the F, the I, the A, the N, the C, the E - the iconic metal band have responded to Farage's idea and are demanding that he shut it down due to his “anti-immigrant rhetoric."

The Blast have reported that on July 10, Zach de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford instructed their lawyer to send a cease and desist letter to the former UKIP leader.

The band state that Farage's podcast "brazenly and unlawfully exploits our client’s name and logo,” adding that the “implication of any endorsement by our client of you or your policies is particularly abhorrent.”

The statement adds: "RATM has publicly denounced the type o f right-wing ideology you espouse for decades; in fact, that has been an integral part of the band’s identity and purpose. Your anti-immigrant rhetoric, lack of social compassion and barely disguised racism and xenophobia are the antithesis of what RATM stands for. Stop using RATM’s name and logo, change the name of your podcast and find some other target to troll. We suggest President Trump.”

The band reiterate their firm stance to take the power back by saying that the politician must stop using the name that "falsely associates you, your colleagues at LBC and Fox, and your far-right political views with RATM.”

Mr Farage, it could be time to sleep now in the (legal) fire.
