Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello was in for a surprise when he was accidentally tackled by a security guard after a fan rushed the stage during the band’s concert in Toronto over the weekend.

When a fan rushed the stage during the band’s classic anti-police hit ‘Killing in the Name,’ one of the Scotiabank Arena security guards pursuing the stage-rusher accidentally collided with Morello, resulting in the musician falling offstage. 

Lead singer Zack de la Rocha, once he realized what happened to his bandmate, stopped the show as the guitarist was helped back onto his feet. 

The band soldiered on – ‘Killing in the Name’ was the closing song of their set – and the Toronto crowd cheered.

On their current tour, the band has consistently protested the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade and during a show in Quebec, called out Canada’s treatment of its indigenous community. 

Over the decades, the band as a whole and their individual members, Tim Commerford, Zack de la Rocha, Brad Wilk and Tom Morello have used their songs and platforms to make political statements.

The group disbanded around 2000 but reunited in 2007 to headline the final day of Coachella as a statement against the state of the country under the leadership of President George W. Bush.

Ahead of the 2016 election, the band formed a sort of ‘supergroup’ with members of Public Enemy and Cypress Hill called Prophets of Rage.
