RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Video Predicted Donald Trump Presidential Campaign 15 Years Ago
It's crazy to think when social commentary accurately predicts the future. With yesterday being "Back to the Future" day, everybody was looking at things the movie got right about the future, but in the rock world, Rage3 Against The Machine weren't too far off with a political prediction in their controversial video for "Sleep Now In The Fire," directed by noted filmaker Michael Moore.
The video, which was released 15 years ago, shows mock signs predicting Donald Trump running for president, implying Wall Street and people with money are the ones taking over the government. 15 years later, Trump is running, and claims he is self-financing, although there are some reports to the contrary.
What are some other predictions metal got right?
Update: Turns out we got a little ahead of ourselves as Donald Trump was thinking of running back in 2000 as well.
